Get ready to celebrate Onam the smart way

4 mins August 09, 2019

Onam, a harvest festival of Kerala, marks the start of the period of celebrations in India. In Kerala, Onam is celebrated with great gusto and spirit by first visiting the temple or church, participating in cultural events, and then having a scrumptious meal with family and friends.

However, today, with people moving out to earn a living, the revelries of Onam aren’t just confined to the boundaries of Kerala. You can witness the spirit of Onam in many other parts of India and amongst the diaspora abroad.


Restaurants are overflowing with diners wanting to savour traditional Kerala delicacies, auditoriums are fully booked by cultural groups organising traditional music and dance shows for their members and guests, malls are flooded with merchandise as people get their houses and themselves ready to welcome King Mahabali, who as per the folklore comes to visit his subjects during this 10-day festival. This also the time when retail chains offer exciting deals and hence, is a good time to get your shopping lists ready.

This Onam don’t hold back on having a wonderful time with your family and dear ones: shop till you drop and indulge in dining delights till your heart’s content.

Axis Bank can make all this possible. If you have an Axis Bank credit card, swipe it and enjoy the best offers. With super-saver deals and discounts on a variety of transactions ranging from travel, appliances, apparel, grocery, etc on online as well as offline purchases – you can truly make your Onam celebration rewarding and joyful.

Likewise, if you wish to dine out on Onam with your loved ones, do not miss out on Axis Bank’s Dining Delight offers. Axis Bank has partnered with a number of restaurants across the country where you can avail a minimum 15% discount by using your Axis Credit Card and/or Debit Card and indulge in scrumptious cuisine and great dining experiences.

If you do not hold an Axis Bank credit card, apply for the one that suits your needs today, so that you do not miss out on exciting and exclusive offers!

With a credit card in your pocket, wallet or purse, you don’t need to carry wads of cash. A credit card is convenient to use, earns you some money on spend (in form of reward points, discounts and cash-back offers), facilitates conversion of your high value purchases into Equated Monthly Instalments (making it easy on your pocket), comes with an interest-free credit period of 45-50 days, and ensures liquidity limitations do not get in the way of your celebrations.

If you want to use the Onam holidays for a trip to an enchanting destination of your choice, do consider applying for a Holiday Loan to help make it happen. A Holiday Loan much like a Personal Loan provides easy access to money.

A Holiday Loan from Axis Bank comes with a 2 month ‘EMI holiday’ immediately after loan disbursal. Further, the loan is offered with minimal documentation compared to other loans, at an attractive rate of interest, and the repayments are flexible with 12 months to 60 months loan tenure options. Plus, currently, there are no charges for part-prepayment and foreclosures of a Holiday Loan with Axis Bank.

A holiday helps us to relax and strengthen our bonds with family members by spending some quality time together.

So, go all out, celebrate the culturally rich festivals of India with your loved ones.

Wishing you a Happy Onam!
