Looks like the ability to save money on Indigo this summer with Amex cards are huge. Given that there is no limit mentioned on multiple txns, its safe to assume that there isn’t any limit.

Even the Travel dates are open. This is too good to believe, yet that’s the reality. All you need to do is do multiple bookings whenever possible to make full use of the offer.

Just incase if you’re flying international, not to forget that you can also get 5X Reward Points on International Spends, maybe by booking an Intl hotel at 30% Off.

Tip: Its better to use Indigo’s CC payment gateway & not any wallets to be 100% sure that you get the cashback on time.


I flew Indigo ~2 weeks back almost after two years and I should say its still an amazing airline, yet i wouldn’t say it a “low cost” carrier as these days all airfares have significantly gone up.

That said, its definitely worth availing this Amex offer if you by any chance have a plan to fly anytime soon. 20% Cashback on Airfare is usually very rare to see.

    Hi Sid,

    Paytm has an amazing offer providing flat 1800 cash back if you book 4 tickets.

    I booked Bangalore to Kochin for 3 adult and 1 infant ..price was around 1200 per adult on Air Asia and final cost including convience fee and infant was 4500….so 1800 cash back was whooping 40%.

      40% is awesome & Unbelievable. Even the fare seems to be too low. Recently i flew MAA-COK on Indigo that costs me 3.5k for 1hr 😐

    2. Ravi Kanthaliya Jain

      The convenience fee itself would have costed around 1200. That’s the catch.

      1. Atul

        Well in Indigo convenience fees is Rs 450/ticket so in essence for a family of 4 this offer helps you to book tickets without paying that fees.

  2. TG

    Nothing really beats the diners black hdfc SmartBuy offer. You get 33% value back, no convenience fee, and Rs 200 extra discount. And to top it off, you also get 100% refunds thanks to hdfc ergo offer.

  4. Smruti

    I tried this. Turns out the convenience fee charged by indigo was higher and I got a better deal while booking Bangalore to Kolkata through smartbuy and 10x offers for diners black.

    Even RBL Bank is running a 15% cashback offer on Indigo flights. So kind of Indigo tied up with multiple banks for this summer early bookings.
