Diners Club closing down in Australia

Diners Club has announced that Diners Club cards issued in Australia will stop working from early 2024. You can contact Diners Club Australia by calling 1300 360 060. You can also compare other credit cards on Finder.

Types of cards from Diners Club

  • Diners Club Rewards charge cards

The Diners Club Card earns Diners Club Rewards Points per $1 on eligible purchases and offers complimentary insurance for international travel and eligible shopping. You can redeem your points for rewards including travel, cashback, digital gift cards and point transfers to loyalty programs including Velocity Frequent Flyer, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer and IHG Rewards Club.

As a charge card, you don't pay interest but do need to pay the total account balance by the due date on each statement. But Diners Club cards have limited acceptance and potentially high surcharges in Australia, so you may want to get an account that also comes with a World Mastercard.

  • Diners Club frequent flyer charge cards

Diners Club gives you a choice of two Qantas Frequent Flyer accounts. With the Frequent Flyer Diners Club Card, you'll earn 1 Qantas Point per $1 on eligible spending wherever Diners Club is accepted.

With the Frequent Flyer Diners Club Card + World Mastercard account, you get two cards linked to the same account and earn 1.25 Qantas Points per $1 spent on eligible purchases with the Diners Club Charge Card and 0.5 points per $1 spent with the Mastercard. Both of these accounts also offer 1 additional Qantas Point per $1 for eligible spending with Qantas.

  • Business charge cards

The Diners Club Business Card earns reward points per $1 on eligible transactions and has detailed statements that can help you track and report spending for your business. It also offers access to over 1,000 airport lounges and complimentary travel insurance.

With this charge card, you get 51 interest-free days to pay your statement in full.

  • Corporate charge cards

The Diners Club Corporate Cards offer a range of account features to match the needs of your company. Some of the key benefits include detailed reporting, tax-ready statements and airport lounge access. You also have the option of a customised Corporate Travel Program.

The Diners Club Rewards program

Available exclusively to people with Diners Club cards, this rewards program gives you a way to earn points for all your eligible spending, with no limit on how many points you can earn and no expiry.

You can use these points to get rewards including gift cards, cashback, Apple products or point transfers to programs including Velocity Frequent Flyer, Singapore Airline KrisFlyer and Flybuys.

Diners Club Rewards point transfer partners

Below is a list of the loyalty programs you can transfer points to from your Diners Club account, including the transfer rates.

Benefits of getting a Diners Club Card

Some of the key features you can get with a Diners Club card include:

Diners Club has partnered with airport lounges around the world to offer you complimentary access when you show your card and valid boarding pass. Some lounges also allow you to bring a guest, although fees may apply. You can search for lounges and individual entry details on the Diners Club website or by downloading the Diners Club Travel Tools mobile app. This lounge access will stop working with Australia-issued Diners Club cards from early 2024.

If you're shopping with US retailers, you can get discounted shipping and parcel-forwarding options through a partnership with MyUS.com. As a Diners Club cardholder, perks include free premium membership for 24 months, 15% savings on your first shipment and 10% savings on all subsequent shipments.

  • Mastercard World Benefits

If you get a companion World Mastercard, you'll unlock exclusive offers on shopping, dining, travel and golf. For example, you can get complimentary green fees and golf lessons at participating locations around the world – including in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

    Can I use Discover card wherever Diners club card is accepted at airport lounges worldwide.

    To use the lounge facility, must I buy the airline ticket with discover card? Or

    I can use the lounge facility because I have discover card.

      Hi Govindram. Thanks for your question. You don’t need to be flying on a specific flight in order to take advantage of the complimentary lounge access, you only need to have your card on you to get access to the lounges. I hope this helps. Jacob.
