If you'd prefer a Card without any rewards, other features or a Cardmembership fee, an alternative option is available – the Basic Card
1. Travel Insurance Benefits: American Express Services Europe Limited ("AESEL") makes various benefits available to Cardmembers. These benefits derive from contracts which AESEL has made with third parties which AESEL is free to amend, extend or terminate at its sole discretion. These benefits do not form part of AESEL's contract with you but AESEL will aim to inform you 30 days in advance of any changes to the available benefits which may be to your detriment. One of the benefits currently available is the benefit of contracts of insurance made between AESEL and certain insurers, for example travel insurance benefits. You will lose these benefits if you cease to be a Cardmember. Exclusions apply. Full details of the insurance benefits currently available can be found in the Summary of Benefits document which will be provided with your Card. Please read this document to understand the limits and exclusions that may apply. 2. Partner Programmes: Terms and conditions apply for each individual partner program, are subject to change from time to time and are subject to space availability. Some partner programs require enrolment. 3. No Pre-Set Spending Limit: This does not mean however that there is an unlimited spending facility on the card. Each transaction is approved based on the expense level and credit history of all of your accounts established with us, our subsidiaries and affiliates and/or licensees, as well as on your credit history with other financial institutions and your personal resources and income known by us. Provided your account is settled in full and on time each month, you can usually spend as much as you have shown us you can afford. Proof of resources and security may be required. 4.
