Accor partners IndiGo for HDFC Bank Co-brand card; 50% off hotel rooms and accelerated earnings

The IndiGo Ka-Ching Credit Cards, issued by HDFC Bank and powered by MasterCard, was launched in February 2020.

The new credit cards, in the legacy ways of IndiGo, were branded as ‘Ka-ching’, going after the sound of the money till reference. The cards were launched in two variants, 6E Rewards and 6E Rewards XL. Customers are able to avail of complimentary Air Tickets on activation for an amount of INR 1500 or INR 3000, depending on the variant. The credit cards allow customers to accrue accelerated 6E Rewards on IndiGo transactions. They can also earn additional 10-15% 6E Rewards on dining, shopping, transport and medical spends with Featured Partners.

Furthermore, customers have access to other benefits, including priority check-in, choice of seats, and a complimentary meal. IndiGo is now going full-throttle as it builds benefits on the card and has just brought on board Accor hotels as a partner on the co-brand card.

IndiGo & Accor partnership to offer accelerated rewards on the 6E Rewards Card

IndiGo and Accor have partnered to offer accelerated 6E Rewards on spends across stay, dining and work from Accor hotels across India. The partnership will offer a range of hotels, from Luxury to economy category, to Ka-ching cardholders enabling them to earn 3% on 6E Rewards card and earn 6% on 6E Rewards XL credit card. Under this partnership with Accor, Ka-ching cardholders would be able to earn 6E Rewards across multi-properties in key cities.

If it helps, IndiGo’s parent InterGlobe enterprises own 16 of the Accor hotels across India under the ibis brand. Accor has 51 hotels across various brands such as Fairmont, Sofitel, Pullman, Movenpick, Grand Mercure, Novotel, Mercure, ibis and ibis Styles hotels in 23 cities in India.

  2. Hi Ajay,

    Sounds interesting. For those of us who are already ALL members (am Gold tier), we will be able to credit the nights to our ALL membership while still enjoying benefits from the credit card. would that be a fair assumption?

    Till now, purely Indigo wasn’t enough of a pull for me to get this card. But combined with ALL (Accor Partnership), I might just consider this …. now we are only awaiting “normal” life !

    Trust you are well!
