If you travel a lot and is looking for a credit card that will give you cashback rewards on all those plane-hoppings, then this is one credit card you don’t want to miss. Plus, there’s more rewards. Read on.
I like co-branded credit cards. They’re very clear on what benefits you get and since they’re tied to one brand, you can make the most of it. You know, there are those super fancy credit cards with benefits you know you will never use? This isn’t one such card. I mean, you need it only if you travel a lot. That too, if you use Yatra.com a lot. If it’s MakeMyTrip you use, there is another card for you.
This co-branded card from SBI is for loyal Yatra.com fans. It offers benefits for using Yatra.com more and rewards you for being a loyal customer. But, there’s more. It also packs in benefits for shopping elsewhere as well. Let’s take a look at the benefits in detail.

Summary – Is SBI Yatra Credit Card Good?
I’d say yes. Like I said, if you’re a frequent traveler, shops often at Yatra.com then there’s no reason why you don’t need this card. For those who run travel agencies too, this is a good payment option to have. Even though those cashback points aren’t huge, it’s something to keep. On op of that, there are benefits using this card for fuel purchases and groceries. (Although it is limited). Annual fee could’ve been avoided. For these benefits, Rs.499/year is kind of steep. Like you know, I have an aversion to credit cards with annual fees, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting this credit card.
