This card will be useful for the people are travelling frequently (or book flights / hotels for family) as the best value on reward points redemption is on flight and hotel booking. However, I believe the HDFC Diners Club Miles Credit card offer better benefits with less effective annual fees.

For some spending, you get 10X reward points (i.e 30 reward points for Rs 150 spend – making the 6% rewards cashback. Redemption value is equivalent to a cashback of 0.67% on normal spending and 6% on SmartBuy spending and selected partners.


I will write another post to compare the benefits of HDFC Diners Club Premium Credit card against  HDFC Diners Club Miles Credit card, HDFC Diners Club Black Credit card, HDFC Regalia  First credit card, HDFC Regalia Card,  HDFC Infinia Card, and Amex Platinum card.

There are many credit cards offered by HDFC bank with different features including discount on movies, groceries, dining as well as air travel and hotels, free international and domestic lounge access. Some of the cards offers redemption rewards equivalent to 13%-33% cashback, that’s pretty amazing. See list of all credit cards offered by HDFC Bank and check which one you should go for.
