As a young couple just getting into the commitment area that is life i.e House, Wedding etc life's little treats we becoming few and far between, that is until I came across an offer on a discount website promoting the Hi-Life Diners Club. The Hi-Life Diners club is a great opportunity for those...

Great money saver

Restaurants not in all areas

I have been a member of Hi LIfe Diners Club for approximately 4 years now and I think that it is excellent value for money. Basically, when you join the Hi Life club you are sent a Hi Life card and restaurant directory. The directory lists hundreds of restaurants including a short description of...

I'm just coming to end of my 2nd and probably last year as a member of the Hi-Life Card scheme. The concept is a very good one - but unfortunately, the real-life experience of using the card doesn't match the advertsing hype. For around £40 - 50 a year you get a card and a directory of...

The whole concept and how it is packaged seems a bit tacky to say the least. there have been occasions where restaurants have treated us like something they have trodden in when you mention the card. Having spoken to a number of restaurantuers, this seems to be because of their perception of the...

Various restrictions, can be awkward to use

We bought a hi-life card in summer last year after having found a leaflet in one of the petit-blanc brasseries. Whilst we initially felt that it was a fantastic offer for regular diners offering substantial reductions, there were several disadvantages that crept up when we started using the card:...

“Love the Hi Life!”

Discounted meals

Can sometimes only use once at restaurants

I have just purchased a Hi life card after doing some research, and used it for the first time last night. In previous reviews another reviewer labelled Hi Life users a "type". I left a 25% tip and also ordered wine with my meal. Well after leaving a tip we had saved around £10. As other...

Driving the proffit out of the industry

I was reading some reviews on Ciao as a none member and just had to comment on the Hi life members club. This was after having recently read a review by a former Hi-Life member (peter I think), and I thought that as somebody who has worked in the industry myself for many years in a number of...

Like many of the other reviewers I was dubious as to the benefits of the Hi-Life card. However, having already enjoyed two superb meals in the last three weeks I have to admit it's an excellent idea. One of the restaurants I would never have thought of trying if I hadn't looked in the Hi-Life directory. So they are also winners, and I would happily recommend anyone to try them at their regular priced menu. (The Sizzling Scot in Dalry Road, Edinburgh) Given the credit crunch and the affect on our pockets I'm giving HiLife Card the thumbs up. Graham

“Great product for what it is”

published 07/09/2011

Great discounts for very little annual outlay

Not all restaurants are part of the scheme

I'm surprised how some people think that paying £49.95 a year for membership of a club that offers two for one on most courses isn't going to have a few conditions. Let's face it you don't have to use it many times a year to get a lot more than your money back! The discount doesn't apply to side...

A review "Hi-Life - The bain of restaurateurs life" was recently brought to my attention and having been founder and chairman of Hi-Life now for 23 years I feel very dismayed and upset by the points posted by this reviewer. They talk of Hi-Life being "immoral", that Hi-Life members are a "type"...

Some restaurants don't accept week-end bookings

If you live in the North West of England and if you go out for than one meal per month then the Hi-Life will certainly save you money. Lots of the best Restaurants and less expensive accept Hi-Life. I've been using it for about 4 years and have saved hundreds of pounds every year and I wouldn't...

I'm concerned that the listings are not clear about the limited use of this card in the daytime. The Hi-Life listings show many restaurants where the card can't be used for weekend dining. All weekend and evening restrictions are shown by symbols. I don't feel that this system of symbols clearly...
