The JetPrivilege credit card is a co-branded card with HDFC Bank and Jet Airways which offers first-class travel privileges and other exclusive benefits for the customers of the bank. This credit card is curated specifically for the frequent traveller and is one of the best offered by HDFC Bank.
However, given the recent updates from Jet Airways, as they have decided to suspend operations, your JPMiles can still be used.
Since Jet Airways is also partially owned by Etihad Airways, your JPMiles can be used to buy tickets from any of the partner airlines of Jet Airways such as Delta, AeroMexico, Etihad Airways, Air France, Air Canada, and Virgin Atlantic.
The airline company also has its airline running in Europe. One way or return flight tickets can be purchased to and from Amsterdam, London, and Paris.

Renewal Fee Benefits
The credit limit of the JetPrivilege card is at the discretion of the bank. HDFC Bank considers a number of factors before setting a credit limit such as the credit score of the primary cardholder, the credit report as well as current and past repayment history.
For all the transactions done with this credit card, you will be receiving JPMiles instead of reward points. Hence the JPMiles can be redeemed at the Jet Privilege website by adding your Jet Privilege number.
To know more, it is advised that you contact the customer care of Jet Privilege or HDFC Bank.
