The Emirates Skywards ICICI Bank Rubyx Credit Card and the ICICI Bank Mine Credit Card provide similar benefits with a focus on specific traveller profiles. 

How to access these benefits

Cardholders need to present their Card at the participating lounges, to gain entry. In some cases, a pre-booking through ICICI Bank's app or a partner app might be required. It's important to note that the free access is generally limited to the cardholder, any accompanying guest(s) may incur charge(s).

The benefits are not just confined to domestic lounges, many ICICI Bank Cards also offer international lounge access(es), making global travel equally comfortable. However, cardholders should always check the specific Terms and Conditions of their Credit Cards to know if there are any applicable restrictions, such as limited access hours or specific lounge locations.

Maximising your lounge access experience

To maximise the benefits of free lounge access(es), it's advisable to check the list of available lounges in advance. This can be done through ICICI Bank Internet Banking or the iMobile Pay app.

Another tip is to utilise the lounge access during longer layovers or delays.

Additionally, frequent travellers should explore lounges at different airports, as each might offer unique facilities and services.
