Best travel card for travel from israel?
« on: November 12, 2017, 04:08:22 AM »
Hi,

Are there cards whose travel benefits are better for those living in Israel? (Of course no FT fees.)

Do you mean US cards that offer the same benefits in Israel as they do in the US?

I live in Israel, have a US address, and an 800+ FICO.

I am looking for a card with a generous sign-up bonus that also flies from Israel.

I just looked around, and it seems that the United Club card might be good. They have a TLV-JFK flight for 42,500 miles.

Comments, maybe there is something better around?

Or the United MileagePlus® Club Card (50K miles) or the British Airways Visa Signature® Card (75K AVIOS)?

If I go with the United (which i really like as it has lounge access), can I get the fee reduced/removed?

Why not just go with CSR? You still get lounges, lower net annual fee, better bonus categories, more flexibility in point usage.

If you're into El Al, go with Amex Platinum (U.S. version of course).

Both good options, depends on the airlines you favor.

Sorry, I'm new. Who is CSR?

Does that and Amex Platinum help to fly out of Israel?

Thanks!
