Avianca Vida Visa® Card

For People with
Good Credit



Previously known as the LifeMiles Visa Card, the Avianca Vida Visa® Card is a decent airline rewards credit card.

It has a $59 annual fee, 1% foreign transaction fee, and a 0% intro balance transfer APR for 12 months, followed by a regular rate of 15.99%–25.99% Variable.

This airline card comes with some nice features such as a free additional piece of baggage when traveling between the U.S. and Central America, and the ability to purchase miles with a 15% discount. If you’re frequently traveling to Latin American countries on Avianca flights, this card may be for you.

The Avianca Vida Visa® Card is a step down from the Avianca Vuela Visa® Card, which offers double the signup bonus and no foreign transaction fees, but has a substantially higher annual fee.

To apply for the Avianca Vida Visa card you’ll need to have either earned LifeMiles from flying Avianca Airlines or a network partner, or you must have previously been a LifeMiles credit cardholder. If you’re approved, you’ll either receive a Visa Platinum or Visa Signature card, based on your overall credit.
