Seems like the credit card companies continue to scale back on benefits to travelers. Today an email from Capital One:
Effective September 1, 2021, the following benefits are being discontinued:
• MasterRental® Coverage
• Extended Warranty Coverage
• Price Protection
• Travel Assistance Services
• Master RoadAssist® Service
• $100,000 Worldwide Automatic Travel Accident Insurance
This is the third card I've got that has rescinded all rental car coverage in the past few years.
Then you've got Amex's new "Premium Car Rental Protection" program which is essentially leading to making Car Rental Insurance a paid purchase as opposed to a no-cost card benefit.
Seems like the landscape is changing out there!
