HDFC Regalia Vs Millennia Credit card comparison

Updated: Jul 11


HDFC has relaunched its Millennia credit cards from 2nd Oct, 2021. The newer Millennia has addressed most of the complaints with the older version.

So the question comes, is the HDFC Millennia a better option than HDFC Regalia Credit card.

Both cards are quite similar now with two features of Regalia being the deal breaker. Regalia has international airport lounge access and is mostly issued as Lifetime free. However, it comes with hefty income requirements. The advantage of Millennia is that you get 5% cash back on Flipkart too, whereas regalia provides just 1%.
