Axis Bank Privilege Credit Card Review: Fees

Axis Bank has started excluding multiple categories like government services, utilities etc. from spends eligible to be included for annual fee waiver. This makes it a lot more difficult to get annual fee waiver.

Complimentary Airport Lounge Access

  • Airport Lounge Access in India: 8 visits/year
  • Airport Lounge Access outside India: Not Available

Axis Bank Privilege credit card offers 8 complimentary airport lounge visits in India per calendar year. So, if you are an occasional domestic traveller this card can help you with lounge access. The list of participating lounges is limited to a few cities – Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Pune. The details are available over here.

Axis Bank Privilege credit card has a minimum spends requirement to get complimentary airport lounge access. We now need spends of Rs 50,000 over a rolling period of last 3 calendar months to get complimentary airport lounge access. For example, if you need to access the airport lounge on 10th of March, then you should have spent Rs 50,000 in the period from 1st of December to 28th of February.

Other Benefits and Charges

  • Fuel Surcharge Waiver: 1% waiver on transactions between Rs 400 and Rs 4000. Maximum fuel surcharge waiver of Rs 400 per statement cycle.
  • Foreign Currency Transaction Charges: 3.5%+GST ~4.1%
  • Finance Charges: 3.6% per month

Final Thoughts

Axis Bank Privilege credit card used to have an USP of multi-brand voucher redemptions. This option gave a value of 40 paise per EDGE RP giving us a better value for our spends. With the latest update, this benefit will not be available anymore.

The list of exclusions for getting rewards, milestone benefits and annual fee waiver make it a very difficult proposition for most of the customers. At the annual fee of Rs 1500, we would not suggest getting this card but instead go for cashback cards like SBI Cashback or Amazon Pay ICICI.

        1. If you are looking for a transfer to Accor, get Magnus. The value you will get will easily compensate the fee.

          Any EDGE RP earned on the Privilege card can be redeemed for multi-brand vouchers as long as you have enough EDGE RP.

  5. You mentioned that we can combine points we get from Magnus to get higher value vouchers – so, does it mean that we can also move the points obtained from privilege and transfer them to airline miles via magnus?
