In the absence of a forex card, which is better: HDFC Infinia or Amex Travel/Platinum Charge?

Hi Guys,

Have two questions:
  1. I don't have a forex card, so going to use my existing cards. But which is better in terms of lower FX markup? HDFC Infinia or Platinum Travel (or Platinum Charge Card)?
  2. On a slightly different note, if we subscribe to online subscriptions/software - which is lower in terms of FX markup, or is it the same as if we're traveling?
Thanks in advance.
 
Okay.

I had activated GVP in March. As per the following link its expired.

HDFC card with the Global value program activated is a better option. And better to go with Infinia over DCB, as Infinia is a visa card which is widely accepted. I faced acceptance issues with DCB in Singapore. It was hardly accepted anywhere.
