Travel with the safety of always counting with the protection of Platinum Travel Assistance, Automatic Travel Accident Insurance and Car Rental Insurance.


At American Express we understand that peace of mind is key when you travel. That's why Platinum Travel Assistance offers you, at no extra charge, a vast array of benefits and coverage that follow you and your Additional Card members wherever your journeys may take you.


Should you have a medical emergency while traveling, Platinum Assistance can provide you with medical assistance in consultation with local attending physicians. Medical visits to your hotel can also be arranged, depending on the circumstances and the resources available in each country. This comprehensive assistance program includes:

• Emergency medical evacuation up to USD $100,000
• Emergency medical services up to USD $20,000
• Emergency dental treatment up to USD $1,000
• Prescription expenses up to USD $1,000
• Hospitalization arrangements, coordination of arrangements for surgery when necessary, medical monitoring, Intensive Therapy or Coronary Care arrangements, emergency message relay.


In addition, if you encounter an emergency due to a civil or criminal offense, Platinum Travel Assistance will put you in contact with a lawyer in the country in which you are traveling, and will advance you up to USD $10,000 per trip to cover any legal or bail fees which will be charged automatically to your Platinum Card.


In the event that your checked baggage is lost by a commercial carrier, Platinum Assistance will make every effort to track down your missing luggage and keep you posted on their progress. Should Platinum Assistance not be able to recover your luggage, you will be reimbursed up to a maximum of USD $1,200 per trip.


When you travel on any common carrier (plane, bus, train or ship) and charge your ticket to your Platinum Card, you and your Additional Card members will be automatically covered at no additional charge for up to USD $500,000 in Travel Accident Insurance.


Regardless of the car rental company you selected, when you reserve and pay for a car rental with The Platinum Card, you will be covered against damage to, or theft of, most rental vehicles. Simply refuse the insurance offered by the commercial rental car company before you sign the contract.
