With a monthly rate of just 1.75 percent, the Diners Club credit card offers payment flexibility, with a minimum payment of just five percent of the outstanding balance each month. It will be available to anyone earning over 4,000 Emirati dirhams per month.  


“This is the first time that Diners Club International has launched a credit card in the UAE, having been widely recognized for charge cards in the past,” Louis A Scotto, chairman of Diners Club International (UAE) said. “There are many credit cards on the market but we believe that none feature as many benefits and services as the Diners Club International credit card, and we look forward to a positive reaction in the UAE market.”. 


The Diners Club credit card offers a host of local benefits in addition to an international network of services and facilities. As well as instant purchases of goods and services, cash advance at over 432,000 ATMs worldwide, Diners Club offers balance transfer facility from other credit cards at a low rate of interest (one percent per month) for the first three months. — (menareport.com)
