Needless to say, this is a premium credit card from ICICI Bank and it offers a lot of premium benefits to its users. But there are some major drawbacks to this card. The high fees of the card cannot be justified by the kind of benefits offered by this card. The joining fee of the card is way too high, and the high foreign currency conversion charge is not acceptable after paying so much.
Therefore if you want a super-premium lifestyle enabled credit card, then you can go for this card, it will surely offer you the best possible lifestyle benefits at an affordable rate. Otherwise, I would recommend you go for the HDFC Infinia Credit Card.
