Bottomline

2% 6E Reward points on Groceries, movies is better than most of the credit cards in this category, but as a travel card, we were expecting atleast 1 or 2 complimentary lounge excess each year. You should go with this card only if you have some travel plans with Indigo. Frequent flyers with IndiGo should go with the 6E Rewards XL card which we have reviewed here.

HDFC Bank is currently issuing only one credit card per customer but considering this as a co-brand card, the bank may issue this card on case to case basis, which depends on your relationship with the bank.
