You’re probably more aware of the American Express name as a provider of credit cards – as it’s one of the largest and oldest card providers in the world.
What you might not know is that Amex also sells travel insurance, which is underwritten by the Belgian company Inter Partner Assistance. This in turn is a member of the AXA group, which is based in France.
American Express remains one of the most trusted brands in this sector. Its happiness scores are well above average too. On the other hand, its transparency falters a little and sits closer to the middle of our ratings.
But that doesn’t stop Amex from achieving a Silver Fairer Finance Ribbon for travel insurance.
Amex also offers pet and personal possession protection products, as well as international health insurance. However, these are not currently rated by Fairer Finance.
