My travel insurance covered a hotel that was paid with CSR points.

How did you file your claim? Did you have to show amount paid?

Yes. Original confirmation showing price and also proof that I did not receive a refund from the hotel.

Fill out online form on their website and request full PNR log

Requested. Got an answer that the flight was canceled due to operational reasons. No full PNR was attached

So reply that you are claiming ASL as it was due to operational reasons

I recommend sending another request asked for the PNR log with nothing else in the request and screenshot of the request for proof in case they ignore it

If they give a different answer when you request ASL you can file a formal complaint with the DOT  and Israel Ministry of Transportation for deceptive business practices and lying along with the request for ASL in Israel

Any companies that provide insurance to Israel now?
Would probably be just for the medical aspect of it, as I dont expect anyone to provide evacuation etc)
TY!

Booking flights for a family to israel. Better to book on Chase Sapphire Reserve or Amex Plat? Which has better coverages?

Thanks

Would Amex platinum (business) cover alternative travel for cancelled flights?
Waiting to board a frontier flight which keeps on getting delayed. Trying to prepare myself for the worst.

BH flight ended up leaving 3 hours late, then returned to the gate to unload an unruly passenger but finally made it.
But the question is still relevant for future travels.

I've always used the insurance that comes with my platinum AmEx, but a part of me always wonders if I'll be covered if make a serious claim.

Going to the Bahamas for a few days. Cheap flights, no checked luggage. Any reason to get travel insurance? Does my medical insurance cover emergencies there?

You mean a medical claim? Plat doesn't have that, only emergency evacuation.

If you used the right card to book, you are covered for travel issues, for medical you need to check with your insurance.
