Air India to offer up to 5% Neu Coins when booking with Tata NEU Credit Cards

The Tata Group has been going all-in on their NEU super app proposition that was out of beta and publicly launched in 2022. As a part of the programme launch, Taj InnerCircle had also been subsumed into TATA Neu. Now, the platform has also made a tie-up with Air India.

Earning Tata NEU coins for booking air travel

Tata Neu has long offered the option to book AirAsia/Air India Express tickets via the app and get up to 5% Tata Neu coins. However, now they have tied up with Air India as well, but this tie-up works slightly differently, as you get the Tata Neu coins only for tickets booked using the HDFC Bank Tata Neu Credit Card. You can get yours for a zero joining fee by applying via this link, even if you have another HDFC Bank-issued credit card.

  • Get 5% back as NeuCoins with Tata Neu Infinity HDFC Bank Credit Card
  • Get 2% back as NeuCoins with Tata Neu Plus HDFC Bank Credit Card

This is over and above the Flying Returns points you earn for flying the airline.

Additionally, you get complimentary access to 8 domestic & 4 International lounges annually with the Tata Neu Infinity HDFC Bank Credit Card and to 4 domestic lounges annually with the Tata Neu Plus HDFC Bank Credit Card, the lower-end card variant.
