Doctor’s Superia Credit Card – The Professional Card for Doctors by HDFC Bank

Hey Friends, I am back with another premium segment card of HDFC designed for the most trusted profession of “Doctors”. This new variant in profession specific card segment offers many attractive features and benefits to suit the nature of the job. Both salaried and self-employed doctors are eligible for this card. The card displays the professional tag like Dr before the name of the customer unlike all other cards.

Doctor’s Superia Reward Points:

The card offers 3 reward points on all types of purchases complemented by attractive travel benefits. It has a travel club which grants you a membership of Kris flyer – Singapore airline flyer program which lets you redeem your earned reward points at over 20 international airports. You can also redeem these reward points against Air miles on Jet Airways or Air India etc. and air vouchers with other domestic leading airlines.

While in dining it gives you 50% or more Reward Points at all outlets which are classified under “Hotels” merchant category code as defined by Visa/Master card. This can make your dining more rewarding and enjoyable. From rewards front, its pretty low and i would better suggest for a Moneyback credit card or business moneyback credit card as they provide better rewards especially for online spends.

It offers refreshments, well deserved rest and facilities like phone, internet and conference rooms etc. It frees you from various airport chaos and other travel exertions and gives you a relaxing and satisfied travel experience.
