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.
On top of the usual Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption coverages, the American Express Gold plan offers optional Cancel For Business Reasons coverage if the policy is purchased within 14 days of the initial trip payment. If you or your traveling companion are required to work and your previously approved time off is revoked, your place of employment is made unsuitable for business due to a natural disaster, or if there is an unanticipated merger with another company this coverage is designed to reimburse you for your non-refundable, pre-paid trip costs.
If you will be traveling for an extended period of time, this plan will cover trips up to 60 consecutive days in length. This plan does include Global Trip Delay coverage, but you must be traveling on a scheduled airline to be eligible for this benefit.
As well as having baggage and delayed checked baggage benefit, coverage is offered for your personal property if a loss occurs in a personal or rental vehicle during the covered trip. Also, there is Hotel/Motel Personal Property benefit if a loss occurs to your personal property while you are staying in a hotel or motel. Please see the details of this coverage in the plan certificate.
No one ever wants to think about the worst that can happen while they are traveling, but knowing the plan offers coverage for most situations, can help to put your mind at ease.

I did not have to file a claim so I don't know how the insurance would have handled it. However, I was satisfied with the coverage and cost.Doriane R.
