Visa’s slogan, “everywhere you want to be” makes it clear that their cards are accepted nearly everywhere - worldwide. That’s why they're often chosen over other networks like American Express that can be more rewarding.

All of the best Visa credit cards you come across, are likely to have one thing in common…

They will either be Visa Infinite or Visa Infinite Privilege cards.

Both cards come with a fairly big annual fee - Visa Infinite cards are usually around $120 yearly, and Visa Infinite Privilege cards are often around $400 yearly. Not only that, but you usually need fairly high minimum income - $60,000 or $100,000 (household) for Visa Infinite and $200,000 for Visa Infinite Privilege.

And that is one reason Visa can offer their premium cardholders many premium perks and benefits.

Visa Infinite and Visa Infinite Privilege cards offer benefits to their cardholders in the areas of:

  • Travel and Hotel
  • Entertainment
  • Sports
  • Food and Wine
