BAGGAGE INSURANCE PLAN¹TRAVEL WITH MORE CONFIDENCE

Travel more comfortably knowing you can be covered by the Baggage Insurance Plan1.

Use Your Eligible Card – Baggage Insurance Plan1 coverage can be in effect for Eligible Persons for eligible lost, damaged, or stolen baggage during their travel on a Common Carrier (e.g. plane, train, ship, or bus) when the entire fare for a ticket for the trip (one-way or round-trip) is charged to an eligible Card Account.
Baggage Coverage – Coverage limits apply. For New York State residents, there is a $10,000 aggregate maximum limit for all Covered Persons per Covered Trip. This product provides secondary coverage. This means it pays eligible benefits not paid by any primary insurance that you have. Please read important exclusions and restrictions.

For residents of GU and MP, the Plan is underwritten by Tokio Marine Pacific Insurance Limited, Hagatna, Guam under Policy CRCB000000100. This benefit is not available to residents of American Samoa, Federated States of Micronesia, Marshall Islands, Palau and the US Minor Outlying Islands. Coverage is determined by the terms, conditions, and exclusions of the Policies applicable to your Card and is subject to change with notice. This document does not supplement or replace the Policies. To be covered, you must pay the entire fare for travel on a Common Carrier (e.g. plane, train, ship, or bus) with your eligible Card. Entire Fare means the cost of the full fare for a Covered Trip on a Common Carrier. You can use your Basic or Additional Card Member’s American Express Card, American Express Membership Rewards® Points or a combination of both for the entire fare. But if you use another form of payment or frequent flyer miles or points from another program to pay for all or part of the fare, you will not be covered. To be eligible for claim payment, your account must be in good standing on the eligible card that maintains the original charge. This product provides secondary coverage. This means it pays eligible benefits not paid by any primary insurance that you have. For checked baggage, a written report of the loss must be filed with the Common Carrier. For carry-on baggage, a written report of the loss must be filed with a local law enforcement agency if theft is suspected. For full Terms and Conditions, see americanexpress.com/BIPterms.
