The Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select Card does not offer travel insurance. Citi dropped travel insurance from all of its American Airlines credit cards in 2019. Previous coverage included travel accident insurance, trip cancellation and interruption protection, and baggage insurance.
If you want a card that gives good perks on American Airlines flights but still offers travel insurance, you could consider the AAdvantage Aviator Red and Aviator Silver cards from Barclays. These cards offer travel accident insurance, insurance for baggage delays, trip cancellation insurance, and rental car insurance. Aviator Red is comparable to Platinum Select in terms of rewards, while Aviator Silver is a bit more of a luxury card with even better perks. However, you can’t apply for Aviator Silver directly; it’s only available as an upgrade for people who have Aviator Red.
If you’re willing to look outside of American Airlines-branded cards, there are plenty of other good travel credit card options that give travel insurance, too, such as Capital One Venture.
