Unfortunately, you haven’t that many options in Luxembourg to earn miles via a credit card.

But from the only two possibility you’ve got, one isn’t bad at all.

Although Luxair claims that the Miles-and-More Visa card by Spuerkees is the best travel credit card in Luxembourg, that is simply not true.

It is the second-best credit card to collect miles, the second best of two possible cards ;).

The best credit card to earn miles in Luxembourg is the American Express.

Quick comparison of both cards

American Express offers different cards, three of them are perfect if you want to earn miles.
