Comparison of Amex Platinum & CSR Travel Coverage
Hello Lucky. I am still confused as to which card is best to use for travel; the AMEX Platinum or CSR. I have been sticking with the CSR mostly for flights, but then I get greedy and use the AMEX for the 5x’s points. But I don’t believe that the Amex insurance is as good as CSR, and then I get nervous when I’m on a trip paid for with AMEX. Medevac is one instance. I often travel alone internationally, and want to use the one that will benefit me the most should I have troubles. I am 63, 5′ female. Can you help to sum up the pros and cons of each? Please and Thank You!
Hi there, I’m not sure if Lucky has done an overview like this yet, but Frequent Miler has a great resource
The general consensus is that CSR is the most well-rounded coverage, but if you value something like emergency evacuation/transportation, then the AMEX can’t be beat.
