Maximizing Trip / Baggage Delay and Loss Benefits
« on: August 22, 2015, 08:56:14 PM »
Several cards offer baggage delay / loss benefits. For example, I've used my CSP to get reimbursed for expenses when my checked bags have been delayed. The benefit on my CSP was higher than the one on the MP Explorer from what I remember ($500 limit vs $300).

However, is there a better way to get compensated in these situations? Perhaps going directly to the Airline? That seems like it might be more of a hassle. Also, which card do you think is best for baggage delay/ loss protection? I like the CSP for award travel.

In terms of trip delays, is it possible to double dip? If the airline offers some sort of compensation, can I use my CSP's coverage on top of it? What are some of your best compensation stories for "negative" situations like trip or baggage delays that made you happy you ended up in that situation.
