Whether you’re lying on the beach, exploring a bustling city or heading off to a work meeting, travel is always a welcome break from your routine. But things can also go wrong - from delayed flights, lost baggage to falling ill in a foreign country. That’s where travel insurance can protect you and your wallet from these unforeseen events, so you can have peace of mind and enjoy your trip stress-free.
As an American Express Cardmember, you get basic automatic travel insurance for both local and international travel when you purchase your travel ticket(s) on your American Express® Card 1.
This insurance has been designed specifically with you in mind and as an American Express Cardmember to protect you while you travel.
Basic Automatic Cover has the following exclusions:
As with all policies, conditions do apply. Because certain events and pre-existing medical conditions are not covered under the basic automatic insurance, we have arranged top-up packages to enhance your cover.
If you require additional cover you can buy the optional top-up cover at an affordable fee.
