Hi there,

The airline credit cards which give you the highest number of miles per Swiss franc spent are currently:

SWISS Miles & More Platinum American Express. This card lets you earn 2.4 miles per CHF 2 of purchases charged. The drawback is that it has a CHF 700 annual fee (for this card and the SWISS Miles & More World MasterCard Platinum).

Diners Club Miles & More Card. This card lets you earn 1 mile for every CHF 1 of purchases charged. It has a CHF 250 annual fee.

SWISS Miles & More Gold American Express. This card lets you earn 2 miles per CHF 2 of purchases charged. It has a CHF 220 annual fee (for this card and the SWISS Miles & More World MasterCard Gold).

Diners Club British Airways Card. This card lets you earn 1 Avio for every CHF 1 of purchases charged. It has a CHF 250 annual fee.

It is important to consider the fees you pay for a card because these directly detract from the airline savings you get. Other things to look out for are complimentary benefits which provide additional value for travelers - like airport lounge access and travel insurance.

You can compare all Swiss credit cards using the interactive credit card comparison on moneyland.ch. Select the "Frequent flyer miles" filter under "Rewards programs" to limit results to airline credit cards.

Best regards from Moneyguru
