Back in 2015, HDFC Bank made a partnership with Air Vistara, where HDFC Bank Credit Card’s premium customers holding the Infinia and the Regalia brand were going to get 1 year of complimentary Vistara status for holding the credit card. This HDFC Infinia Vistara Gold promotional offer has been around for over three years now, and all you had to do was use this website to apply for the status match.
Club Vistara Gold, which is offered for free with HDFC Infinia, gets you the following benefits:
- 10 Club Vistara points for every INR 100 spent on Vistara flights
- Lounge Access
- 10 Kilo excess baggage
- Gold Class check-in counters, baggage handling and boarding
- Upgrade vouchers and lounge access vouchers (transferable)
Club Vistara Silver, which is offered for free with HDFC Regalia, gets you the following benefits:
- 9 Club Vistara points for every INR 100 spent on Vistara Flights
- 5 Kilo excess baggage
- Premium Economy Class check-in
However, this opportunity is now being withdrawn effective March 30, 2019. Here is a notice on the HDFC Infinia website.
A similar notice is up on the website for HDFC Regalia as well.
The good news, as you can see, is you can still apply for the status upgrade and get it (once in the life of the membership), if you have not done so already. Here is the microsite where you can apply.
Have you availed the free tier upgrade on Vistara with your HDFC Bank credit cards? If not, time is running out.
