Mastercard airport lounges has the largest network in India compared to Visa. However, if you hold Visa Signature or Infinite Card its no harm in using them first. I always value Visa cards in this order for lounge access-

  • Priority Pass > Mastercard > Visa

Visa being the first preference to swipe whenever possible as it has least # of lounges and Mastercard gives access to most Domestic lounges whereas Priority Pass gives you access to 850+ lounges across the world. So Priority pass card is the most valuable to me.

Complimentary Lounge Access Limits on Visa Cards:
