Thanks for your replies.
Ive actually gave them a call. And call centre told me that it is possible to get a card wwithout rewards program fee.

Sounds like a good deal just to get a lounge access
Is this for the Qantas card or the regular Diners Club non-Qantas card?

FYI, from the Citibank website (Citi Australia - Platinum Card)

Will the Linked Diners Club Card also come with the benefits of a standalone Diners Club Card (e.g. Diners Club lounge access, etc.)?

"No, The Linked Diners Club Card does not have any Diners Club benefits such as lounge access. Card benefits will remain the same as what is available on your Citi Credit Card."

I'm referring to the companion card. Yes they swiped the card but didn't mention any fee. I saw the eligibility list and it indicated free for Australia, so I'll definitely check my next statement...
AIRwin did you check your statement to confirm if you ended up being charged the fee or not? i would to know before trying it for one of my kids in an upcoming long trip.

thanks AIRwin for confirming there was no charge incurred for the citibank companion Diners club card. ill give it a try at the bne lounge this month
That was the HND lounge though, so I'm not sure if there may be charges at the lounges in Australia...

Better late then never to reply. I love my Diners Club Card for access to lounges. I've been using it for about 12 years. I ditched QC about 10 years ago realizing this is the only card I need and being able to use any airline. Plenty of choice, some good, some very good (Venice, Majorca , Bangkok, Chaing Mai) and some not so good (KLIA2) , but would not give it up.
