Final Verdict:

Though this Kotak Credit Card offers tons of benefits and security for its customers but due to the lack of entertainment, hotel, dining, golf access, and online shopping benefits it will lack behind from other premium cards such as HDFC Infinia credit card. Yet I’ll highly recommend this card as a first-time premium card.
