American Express has always been known for the unbeatable service we offer Cardmembers when they’re travelling.
Travel Accident Insurance1
With your Card you have up to £150,000 in the event of loss of life, limb, sight, speech or hearing, when travelling on public transport and tickets are charged to the Card.
24-hr Global Assist®
For help with anything from tracking down lost luggage to arranging legal, medical or personal advice from local English-speaking experts, we're only ever a phone call away. Call us on +44 (0)845 456 6524 and we'll get to work on your behalf.
Emergency Card Replacement
If your Card is lost, damaged or stolen, we’ll get a replacement to you as soon as we can. If you’re in a remote area, arrangements can usually be made to have your Card waiting at some point along your route. Just call us on +44 (0)1273 696 933 and we’ll take care of the rest.
To extend your travel benefits, you can purchase comprehensive travel insurance. Now you can take one more thing on your travels: total peace of mind. So leave those worries at home and make more space for the memories.
If your purchase is damaged or stolen within 90 days, call our claims team and they’ll arrange a repair or replacement for you up to £2,500 per eligible item or £20,000 in any 12 month period.
Should a UK retailer refuse you a refund on any eligible item worth over £25 within 90 days of purchase, you get back the full purchase price up to £200.
