The world changed 50 years ago when Frank McNamara created the first multi-use charge card - the Diners Club Card. In 1950, a world without cash was inconceivable. Today, an economic universe without plastic is just as inconceivable.
Diners Club was the first card in Australia, commencing in 1956 to coincide with the Olympic Games in Melbourne.
Today, Diners Club offers a range of personal, business and co-branded cards. Diners Club provides a broad range of financial and money management services to its Members, through services such as GST Solution, Diners Club Credit Line, online account management and reconciliation and Club @lerts.
