Wherever you go, your American Express® AeroplanPlus®* Gold Card looks out for you. Simply charge your airline tickets, car rental, and accommodations in full to your Card, and you’ll be automatically covered for:

  • Flight Delay Insurance 1† – Charge your airline ticket to your American Express AeroplanPlus Gold Card, and receive up to $500 coverage (aggregate maximum with Baggage Delay Insurance) for all necessary and reasonable hotel, motel, restaurant expenses and sundry items purchased within 48 hours when you are delayed or denied boarding for four hours or more and no alternate transportation is made available.
  • Baggage Delay Insurance 2† – Book a flight with your American Express AeroplanPlus Gold Card, and receive up to $500 coverage (aggregate maximum with Flight Delay Insurance) for all immediate daily reasonable and necessary emergency purchases, made within four days, for essential clothing and sundry items when your baggage on your outbound trip is delayed by six or more hours.
  • Car Rental Theft and Damage Insurance 3† – Save money when travelling with the Car Rental Theft and Damage Insurance included on your American Express AeroplanPlus Gold Card. Where allowed by law, you will be automatically covered for damage or theft of your rental car with an MSRP of up to $85,000. To take advantage of this protection, simply decline the Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) or similar option offered by the car rental company, and fully charge your rental to your American Express AeroplanPlus Gold Card. There’s no additional charge for this coverage, and you save yourself the daily insurance fee (usually $16 to $23 per day) charged by the car rental company.
  • $500,000 Travel Accident Insurance 4† – Up to $ 500,000 of Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance covers you, your spouse and dependent children under the age of 23 when any of you travel on a common carrier (plane, train, bus or ship) and charge your tickets to your American Express AeroplanPlus Gold Card. Supplementary Cardmembers, their spouses and dependent children under age 23 are also covered.
  • Emergency Card Replacement – If your American Express AeroplanPlus Gold Card is lost or stolen, call us and a replacement Card will be issued to you. If you are in a remote area, arrangements can usually be made to have your Card waiting at some point along your itinerary. Contact Customer Service by calling (in Canada/U.S.) 1-800-668-2639 or (International collect call) 905-474-9380.
