Diner's Club

Diner's Club was a pioneering invention in the financial world. Founded in 1950, the Diner's Club charge card was the world's introduction to the modern-day credit card. Citigroup owns the North American branch of the Diner's Club network, and the Diner's Club card is issued in more than 200 international countries.

Diner's Club cardholders receive a variety of benefits, including:

  • Cash advance options at more than 900,000 ATM locations throughout the world.
  • Diner's Club Concierge Service.
  • Travel insurance.
  • Rental car insurance.
  • An extensive rewards program.

Who uses Diner's Club?

While individual business professionals can use a Diner's Club card, the card carries more appeal with corporations. Unlike other credit cards, potential customers cannot apply for a Diner's Club online. Individuals can call a toll-free number at (800) 2DINERS.

Diner's Club insurance

While many credit cards do include some type of insurance coverage for cardholders, Diner's Club provides fairly extensive insurance for travel accidents and rental cars. From covering up to $75,000 of potential rental car damage to reimbursing up to $1,250 for lost luggage, Diner's Club members have a strong security blanket for potential travel issues.

The Diner's Club Rewards Program

Similar to many credit cards, the Diner's Club rewards program operates on a point system that equates each dollar spent to one point. Card carriers can browse an extensive rewards catalog that includes everything from air travel to champagne.

The Diner's Club U.S. corporate headquarters are located here:

8430 Bryn Mawr Avenue
Chicago, IL 60631

To reach the corporate headquarters, call (800) 234-6377.
