The Diners Club Card Elite is currently not available for new applicants, while Diners Club works to “improve the application process.” (This has been going on for some time now.)

The Diners Club Card Elite offers a slurry of benefits and potential rewards for a premium annual fee.

You’ll earn 3X Club Rewards points per dollar on gas, groceries, and drugstore purchases.

You’ll get a number of travel and shopping benefits including Extended Warranty Coverage, Travel Accident Insurance, Lost of Damaged Luggage Protection, and more. You can also take advantage of a personal assistant for dinner reservations, Identity Theft Assistance, and airport lounge access around the world.

Right now there’s no signup bonus or any clear indication of statement credit benefits, so you’ll have to decide if the high $300 annual fee is worth it or not.
