You’re probably 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.
American Express specialises in premium cards. Most of its cards charge a monthly fee in return for a range of additional services. But it also offers everyday cards such as its Basic Card.
Amex also sells travel insurance, underwritten by the Belgian company Inter Partner Assistance. This in turn is a member of the AXA group, based in France.
Amex offers pet and personal possession protection products, as well as international health insurance.
