Account Opening and Procedure
Tata Star Card Select

The Tata Star Card Select is a decent option for frequent travellers and high spenders who value travel insurance, airport lounge access, and a decent reward rate. The welcome and anniversary bonuses, fuel surcharge waiver, Diners Club membership, and other benefits add further value. However, the high annual fee, limited redemption options, lower point value, and minimum point requirement for lounge access might not be ideal for moderate spenders or those seeking wider or more exclusive benefits.
