No, the Citi Double Cash Card doesn’t have travel insurance anymore. Citibank discontinued travel insurance for the Citi Double Cash Card and most of its other credit cards in September 2019. Prior to that, Citi Double Cash Card offered up to $500,000 in travel accident insurance plus as much as $5,000 in trip cancellation and interruption protection.
