From welcome benefits and reward programs to travel benefits and dining privileges, the card is tailor made keeping in mind the luxurious lifestyle of its target customer base. Along with all these benefits, the card also allows you to save on your dining and travel expenses with benefits like complimentary membership of the Taj Epicure and InnerCircle programs and ICICI’s own Culinary Treats Program.

Since it is a super premium credit card, the annual membership fee of the Diamant Credit Card is on the higher side- Rs. 10,000 per annum. Moreover, the joining fee of this card is Rs. 1.25 lakh, probably the highest for any credit card in India. But then, you also get a complimentary Apple Macbook Air as a welcome gift. The downside here is that you get an older model of Macbook Air- MMGG2HN/A, (2016 variant). It would’ve been better if we could get the latest MacBook Air as welcome benefit.
