Default Best Spanish card for travel perks

I'm doing my annual value check on subscriptions and getting lost on this one. Does anyone have any recommendations for credit cards with travel perks? I currently have the Amex Platinum which costs 65 per month. I'm looking for something that can beat this. Revolut Platinum comes close but only has 1 lounge pass whereas Amex has 2 passes. The perks I'm looking for are:
Lounge passes for 2 people
Fast track
Car hire excess insurance
Travel insurance
Miles/points/hotel credits. Amex gives 250 per year plus some other perks

From my own experience and research multiple times Amex Platinum is hard to beat if you use all the perks. If you get a free supplementary plat card you get 4 lounge entries if needed … 1 per card holder and 1 guest each. The car hire insurance saves me the subscription cost alone each year.

I found car hire cover for 100 per year, which is one of the reasons I'm looking around. However, on my last claim they were very efficient.
I actually added up the benefits from last year and it was 2.5 times the cost of it so I think I should stop being a skinflint. 2 unlimited priority passes alone would cost more than the fee.

I think its super value ....... I use Avis a lot so there is the added benefit of the Avis Presidents Club level which gives good upgrades particularly from Airport locations. As you say the Priority Pass is great value, we travel a lot on staff concessions (my daughter works for an airline) and even if we have a business ticket we cant use the lounges so its great for us, as well as for lengthy layovers in Madrid en route to Tenerife from the Middle East.

If you're interested in train travel there's the Renfe credit cards. Purchases give you points to put toward train travel.
