So how did Diners Club International create
a new payment category, and become a globally
recognized brand in travel, dining and entertainment?

We began our proud history as the first multi-purpose charge card in the world in 1950, all because a man named Frank McNamara had dinner in a New York restaurant but left his cash in another suit. He resolved to never be embarrassed again and founded Diners Club. LIFE magazine once proclaimed Frank McNamara as one of the 100 most influential Americans of the 20th century. Join the club and experience our worldwide revolution.
