Protect Your Travels

This winter storm is another reminder to book flights with a card that offers solid trip delay and cancellation insurance. When TPG writer JT Genter got stuck in Japan for four extra days due to a typhoon, the Citi Prestige trip delay protection reimbursed $1,000 of his expenses. Other cards with solid trip protection include the Chase Sapphire Reserve, the Chase Sapphire Preferred CardCiti / AAdvantage Executive World Elite Mastercard and the Citi Premier Card.

We will continue to update this post as more airlines issue waivers.
