HDFC Diners Club Black Credit Card user Pranav said this in CARD INFO which mentions some drawbacks. Though HDFC Diners Club Black credit card provides unparalleled benefits, it has some downsides also:
- Limited acceptability: Though coverage of Diners Club is expanding day by day, it’s not as good as Visa/Mastercard. You need to keep a backup card handy always, especially outside India.
- No renewal benefits: There are no renewal benefits if your spend is less than Rs. 5 Lakhs. Earlier HDFC Bank used to compensate for renewal fee by providing reward points of equivalent value, which is not the case now.
