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 15.74%–25.74% 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.

You’ll also get 20,000 bonus LifeMiles after your first card purchase within 90 days of opening your account.

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.
