Yes, the day has come! Indusind credit cards especially Iconia American Express is one of the very few cards in the country with unlimited Airport lounge access to primary & add-on cardholders. This is now changing eff. 2019.
I first noticed this update on my Iconia credit card statement and on cross checking the website, i could see below notice:
That’s mere 2/Qtr from unlimited which is too tough to live with for some, who got the card just for the sake of Lounge access.
This is very much expected, as banks can’t absorb the losses beyond a certain extent. Earlier this year, ICICI bank too had limited the visits to “4/qtr” from “unlimited” on Jet Sapphiro Amex cards.
Only card left with unlimited access for now is Amex Jet Card which may as well get a limit soon if many start using them. Maybe Amex is doing it to pull the cardholders to their own system, or maybe not? Anyway, the party is getting over on Indusind cards in ~2 months.
Going forward, you might need to hold multiple credit cards if you need more lounge access or maybe move to one of the super premium credit card to enjoy Unlimited lounge access.
Any of you guys got Indusind Iconia just for Airport Lounge access? If so, what’s your plan now? Do let us know in the comments below.
