By | March 17, 2021

HDFC added one more card to its list of credit cards. They have launched Diners Club Privilege Credit Card after Diners Club Black, which counted among premium cards of the country. HDFC feels the need for this card as the customers are not satisfied with the Diners Club miles card. And also can not afford to have Diners Black.

So Diners Club Privilege is the card that is positioned between those two. Now let us see what is there for us in this card which comes at 1/4th the price of Diners Black.

Our Suggestion

This is a decent card that we can use for our daily purposes as it gives decent rewards with amazing milestone benefits.

The drawback with this card is that of its acceptance, as Diners has little acceptancy in India. But it holds a reward rate of 1.3%, somewhere near Diners Black or other premium cards.

You can definitely go for this card if you cannot get Diners Black, as this will pave the way for an upgrade to Diners Black or Infinia.

Bottom Line

Those who are looking for a decent card at nominal charges can look upon this card. Those who cannot get Diners Black & want to upgrade Diners Club Miles can go for this card as it took you one a step closer to Diners Black.

Even the perks provided are somehow close to Diners Black that too with a lower annual fee. Hence anyone meeting eligibility criteria can apply, and even now, some airports have started providing separate lounges for Diners holders. They are constantly trying to make Diners services more acceptable.
