We are planning to travel to USA in July; hiring a car.

Is it advisable to upgrade the free insurance offered on my Bankwest Platinum card?

I have purchased the tickets and paid for some accomodation and activities using this card, so am eligible for the complimentary insurance.

Is it enough though?

Thanking you

Hi @bookworm9992001, thanks for your enquiry. Providing that you have spent at least $500 of pre-paid travel expenses, and have a return airfare before departing, you should be covered. However, the best people to speak with about the complimentary insurance on your credit card, are the providers Allianz Global Assist. Their number is 1800 785 918. This is because although Bankwest provide the insurance, Allianz are the underwriters of the policy and therefore will be able to confirm that you have met the criteria, and can advise exactly what will be covered. You would then be able to decide if you feel that you would like to take out extra cover. Hope this helps!
