1. ADIB Emirates Skywards World & World Elite Cards
When a cardholder makes purchases with the card, air miles are won. Any good transaction earns and collects regular travel points or miles for the cardholder This set of Shariah-compliant covered cards takes the top spot on our list for many reasons. Let’s start with the most notable feature: the cardholder’s fast track to Emirates Skywards Gold Tier membership. Although all Emirates Skywards Silver membership is free for all cardholders, you can upgrade to the coveted Gold Tier membership by meeting a few simple requirements. To get and keep your Gold Tier status with the World Elite card, you’ll need to spend AED 5,500 with Emirates. You’ll also need to pay a minimum of AED 150,000 per year to qualify for the World card.
Another fantastic benefit is the free (up to four times a year) home check-in service, which allows you to check in your Emirates flight luggage and have it picked up directly from your home, office, or hotel. That’s not everything, though. Additionally, you can receive free airport transfers (up to four times a year), unrestricted global access to 900+ airport lounges, 24-hour concierge facilities, and travel inconvenience and medical coverage. The lifestyle benefits offered here include free rounds of golf and free valet parking at select UAE locations.
