Final Thoughts

This is just a select list of debit cards that come with complimentary airport lounge access. ICICI Gemstone debit cards are another set that I wanted to include but left it out. The reason is they need a certain spend in the previous quarter for free airport lounge access. The last thing you need is to calculate how much you spent when you need to access a lounge for free.

LTF IndusInd Bank Credit Cards

Another very good option is any Rupay Platinum debit card. Any Rupay Platinum debit card across banks comes with complimentary airport lounge access. So, if you get one then it is good as well.

Any other debit card that should be featured in this list? Do comment and share.

    Primus lounge at Indore Airport not only refused to allow Privy Debit Card issued by Kotak Mahendra Bank on 28/2/23 but were discourteous too! Please advise facts on Debit Cards? Aren’t they allowed.

  2. Kalyan Kumar Choudhury

    I have AXis bank Priority debit card, PNB Rupay debit card, SBI Global debit cards in my name and SBI Classic debit card in my wife’s name. Please advise which card / cards are recommended to access free airport lounge facilities at Bangalore.
