10 reasons to use your credit card – Part 10: travel accident insurance

Travel accident insurance is yet another travel protection benefit that many credit cards provide for free. I honestly have never paid attention to this benefit, because deep down, I really hope that nobody ever has to use it. It is what it sounds like: insurance against travel accidents. Most, if not all, travel rewards credit cards cover this, and the coverage limit is typically very high, up to $1,000,000 (1 million dollars!). Restrictions apply.

Even terrorist attacks are covered by some credit cards.

I wrapped up this 10-part series with the benefit that is the most costly to credit card issuers and the least used by cardholders. I tried to organize the posts in the order of descending importance and applicability, with the later ones being travel benefits. I hope you found the series helpful. Any feedback is welcomed!

Happy November and Daylight Saving!
