    Lounge access will be withdrawn on this card w.e.f 15th Aug, and I believe value of points will also be reduced (not 100% sure)

    Please recheck

      Yes, the complimentary lounge access on Diners Club Rewardz will be withdrawn w.e.f 15th by this month. The reward points for bookings at their site will also be reduced.
      They are going to set limits on complimentary lounge access even for the Diners Black holders just like Visa and MasterCard do.

        So its a bit deceptive to publish a review stating it has unlimited lounge access when we know anyone applying on the basis of the review will not be able to avail it, isnt it?

          As I told earlier, currently it has unlimited lounge access but it will be changed w.e.f 15th Aug 2017. After 15th, the post will be re-checked again for the latest update.
