Pros and cons

Pros
  • No foreign transaction fee

Cons
  • Has annual fee

The Aer Lingus Visa Signature® Card, issued by Chase, is the co-branded card of Ireland's major airline.

It offers decent ongoing rewards and a generous sign-up bonus, in the form of Avios, which can be redeemed not just on Aer Lingus, but also on British Airways, Iberia and other airlines. And an annual companion pass for Aer Lingus-operated flights adds an extra dose of value.

But it takes a lot of spending in the first year to earn the highest possible sign-up bonus. And as is the case with all airline-branded credit cards, you get the most out of this card if you fly that airline often. (If not, consider a general travel rewards credit card for more flexibility.)
