Traveling on AMEX Platinum

Postby Grupet » Thu Jun 11, 2015 6:15 am

So I'm going on a business trip to Hong Kong and China, and bought everything with my AMEX Platinum. Flights and hotel.
So what kind of insurance do I need, beside what AMEX is covering? And what insurance company is best and reasonable?
(Health, trip cancelation etc...)

Thanks

That's your call to make. Different people choose different insurance -- including not using insurance. You need to tell us what you need/want or at least what your concerns are and what you're willing to insure.

Sorry, I want some kind of health insurance and trip cancelation, just in case something happens from now to the actually trip. Not sure what else I need? I wanted to be covered for basic things. Also not quite sure what Amex covers?

What sort of health insurance do you need? Do you currently have health insurance stateside, and if so, does it have provisions for international travel?
If you Google "temporary health insurance for travelers", you'll get a choice of companies that offer that sort of thing. Also, check the AMEX Platinum benefits pages in detail, there may be an good explanation of what is and is not covered by AMEX.
Retired, and in the process of retiring cards!
