Axis Bank offering Vistara Infinite credit card with fee waiver through December 2022

Axis Bank and Vistara came together in 2016 to launch the first co-brand credit card range for Club Vistara. This range has been wildly popular and successful for Vistara and Axis Bank for some reasons specific to this range of credit cards only. And now, there is an opportunity to get the Axis Bank Vistara Infinite Credit Card with a fee waiver, apart from the other cards in this range, as long as you can meet specific minimum spending. Read on…

Axis Bank Vistara Infinite Credit Card with Fee Waiver

Axis Bank and Club Vistara offer the Axis Bank Vistara Infinite Credit Card, which is the top-end credit card for the Axis Vistara Credit Card range. The key perks of the card are that you get a complimentary Vistara Business Class ticket for use by you or anyone who is a nominee on your Club Vistara account.

  • Complimentary Business Class Tickets: The card offers up to five complimentary business-class tickets, which is where it shines. The first business class ticket is available to you when you pay the annual fee, and the rest of the four are credited to your account once you do milestone spends on the card. The Milestone spends to achieve the remaining complimentary tickets are as follows:
    • First Ticket: INR 2.5 Lakhs within the Membership Year
    • Second Ticket: INR 5 Lakhs within the Membership Year
    • Third Ticket: INR 7.5 Lakhs within the Membership Year
    • Fourth Ticket: INR 12 Lakhs within the Membership Year

Each Voucher is credited to the Club Vistara account of the member upon achieving the spend. From there, the member has up to nine months to use the voucher for their free travel (six months to issue the voucher and three months subsequently to encash it for free travel).

Cardholders may issue the voucher in their Club Vistara account anytime within six months of their becoming eligible. Once issued, the Voucher will be visible under the ‘My Vouchers’ section and valid for three months from the date of issuance.

  • Club Vistara Gold Tier: While many people think of the complimentary tickets as the best feature of the card, I find the complimentary Club Vistara Gold Tier to be the top offering of this card. The reason is, if you are a not-so-frequent traveller, there is a high chance you are not going to be making it to the top tiers of the airline’s loyalty programme anyways. And if you are going to look at the 2023 loyalty tier assessment, you have to spend a lot of money to make it to Club Vistara Gold/Platinum. But here, at the cost of INR 10,000 plus GST, you can access the Gold Tier as long as you are a card member.

This will get you access to the priority queue at the airport and on the phone with Vistara support. Additionally, you get a couple of Club Vistara upgrade vouchers and additional baggage allowance, even if you are travelling in economy on the airline. For your baggage, you get priority baggage handling as well, which means your bag comes out first on the belt.

  • Mileage Earning: If you want to earn a lot of Club Vistara points, this is your top-end card. For every multiple of INR 200 spent, you get 6 Club Vistara points. Additionally, if you spend INR 1,00,000 (INR One Lakh only) within the first 90 days of card issuance, you will also get an additional 10,000 Club Vistara points credited to your CV account.

Apart from this, many other benefits come along with the card, including complimentary lounge access (even when you are not flying with Vistara).

Axis Bank/Vistara is offering a fee waiver on the Axis Bank Vistara Infinite Credit Card now, as long as you spend INR 1,20,000 on the card within 90 days of your card being issued. This is an easy one if you sign up for this card because you will be spending INR 1,00,000 to pocket the 10,000 Club Vistara points, so this is just a little more. Your first-year fee will be reversed after completing the INR 1.2 Lakh spent. And the beauty of this promotion is that despite the reversal, you will still get the welcome benefits (business class ticket, 10K points, and Club Vistara Gold tier).

Axis Bank Vistara Signature Credit Card

The Axis Bank Vistara Infinite Credit Card is the top-end card, but for some reason, if you don’t qualify for it or high spending is not foreseen for you, you should look at the Axis Bank Vistara Signature Credit Card. The Axis Bank Vistara Signature Credit Card is the mid-tier credit card for the Axis Vistara Credit Card range.

    • @Ramesh, they have only said a merger will happen. Who knows if it takes one year or five to merge. So why worry about something that is potentially 2-3 years out, right now?

  1. Hi Ajay,

    Wanted to clarify if both the annual fee for the first year and the joining fee are waived off if 1.2L is spent within 90 days ?

    That is not clear from your post

  2. Thank you very much. I went ahead & applied for the infinite card. However, I could not find any reference on the Axis bank website for the the fee waiver promotion.
