Just wondering if using my platinum credit card I have car insurance when travelling? We have booked car hire but they asked if I have cover with my credit card?

Hi Ashlee, while the complimentary insurance does reimburse you for any excess you need to pay in the result of an accident, however you would still be required to take Rental Vehicle Insurance with the hire company. You can read all of the details of this in our Complimentary Credit Card Insurance Booklet, located on page 50. Thanks!

They are not located in the book you have the link you have quoted.

 

 

 

6. Interstate Flight Inconvenience Insurance “Interstate Flight Inconvenience Insurance” is only available to World Mastercard, Platinum Mastercard and Gold Mastercard cardholders whilst they are on an interstate Australian holiday of up to 14 days provided the cardholder charges the entire cost of their return interstate flight fare (but not taxes, or airport or travel agent’s charges) to the cardholder’s eligible credit card account. If the cardholder is eligible for this insurance the insurance extends to the cardholder’s spouse and/or dependent children who are travelling with the cardholder for the entire holiday and who have also had the entire cost of their return interstate flight fares (but not taxes, or airport or travel agent’s charges) charged to the cardholder’s eligible credit card account. Except for the cancellation cover, the other covers included in this “Interstate Flight Inconvenience Insurance” are available for a period of 14 days from the date the cardholder, spouse and dependent child leaves their Australian home to travel directly to the airport from where they are catching their interstate flight. The insurance will cease after this 14 day period or earlier if the cardholder, spouse and dependent child return to their or Australian home within 14 days. This insurance, however, is not designed to provide travel insurance benefits as prescribed under the Insurance Contract Act 1984. Benefits 1. Delays › Flight Delay If the intended interstate flight is delayed by four hours or more and no alternative transport is made available, the cardholder is entitled to charge up to A$100 per person to their eligible credit card account for meals and refreshments up to a total of A$500. › 12 Hour Luggage Delay

 

So what is covered.

Hi @pudinga, I apologise for the confusion here. The brochure has since been updated, the rental vehicle excess details are now located on page 43. Thanks!
