American Express cardholders can now cancel flights for any reason…

But there are a few caveats. Here’s the need-to-know on the subject:

This new benefit extends to all Amex cardholders regardless of which Amex card they have, but the flights must all be booked through “Amex Travel.” In addition, the cardholder will only be reimbursed for a portion (up to 75%) of the non-refundable flight cost.

This new benefit is called Trip Cancel Guard and was previously only extended to Platinum Amex cardholders -if they had a good reason to cancel their trip.

While no reason for the cancellation is now needed, all cardholders/travelers must cancel at least two full days before their departure date.

We think it’s a good deal overall, especially for those wanting that extra peace of mind when booking a flight. Hey, it’s better than nothing.

Safe and happy travels, Dean & Andie
