A couple of days ago, I sung praises of the HDFC Bank Diners Club Black credit card, which seems to have gotten much interest with the readers. One of the first question asked to me, of course, was the transfer partners for this card. While this information is not readily available, after some digging up, I could find some details.
The base card, which is HDFC Bank Diners Club Rewardz, can only be used to transfer to JetPrivilege or Air India Flying Returns at 1 point=1 airmile.
The mid-end card, which is HDFC Bank Diners Club Premium, can be used to transfer to all the airline partners, but not on a 1:1 ratio. However, they can be used to transfer to JetPrivilege or AI Flying Returns at 1:1 ratio.
The highest end card, which is HDFC Bank Diners Club Black, can be used to transfer to all the airline partners, including JP and AI in a 1:1 ratio.
Here are all the conversion partners, along with the conversion ratios:
To me, the most interesting partners are Marriott and Hyatt hotels, and AAdvantage. Also, it helps that the list is mostly international transfer partners, which are usually not partnered in India.
What do you guys think about the list of conversion partners for these cards?
