American Express Deluxe

Note: American Express is not accepting enrollments in American Express Travel Insurance or Global Travel Shield anywhere at this time (not just on our website). We apologize for the inconvenience.

Covering trips up to 31 days in length, the Global Travel Shield Deluxe plan offers comprehensive trip protection before and during your travels. With both Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption coverage, your investment is protected if you have to cancel or interrupt your trip for something such as an unexpected sickness or injury of a family member or a traveling companion. There are multiple covered reasons for cancellation and interruption listed in the policy.

If you are concerned about a pre-existing condition (any medical issues that have occurred in the 60 days prior to the policy effective date), the pre-existing conditions exclusion will be waived if the plan is purchased within 14 days of the initial trip deposit, and all pre-paid non-refundable trip costs are insured. Please review your quoted plan for full details regarding this coverage.

Another benefit of the Global Travel Shield Deluxe plan is that your bags only need to be delayed for three or more hours for the baggage delay coverage to become active. This coverage is helpful to reimburse you for necessities that you may have to purchase if you arrive at your destination, but your bags don’t.

Please review the Privacy Disclosure prior to purchase.

Global Travel Shield Deluxe
We have used American Express Global Travel Shield Deluxe twice and we felt secure and protected both times. We are planning another trip overseas in a few months and we will use American Express Global Travel Shield Deluxe again then.

Fortunately, we did not have the need to file a claim! The cost of this plan was 1/2 to 1/3 less than the cost of the plan offered by our travel provider and seemed to cover the same major concerns we had--cancellation and medical coverage.
