    Nationwide Withdrawing Their Credit Card Insurances

    Nationwide Withdrawing Their Credit Card Insurances 9th Nov 17 at 1:25 PM
    I've just received my monthly credit card statement, along with it came information that Nationwide are removing the Purchase Protection Cover, Extended Warranty Cover and Travel Accident Cover from their Cash Reward, Gold and Classic credit cards as from 1st March 2018....

    I've often used my Gold Credit Card to make online purchases (including flights) and the removal of the insurance cover is disappointing.

    Travel accident insurance is not the same as Travel insurance.

    I have a Salisbury travel credit card which does have proper travel insurance (and 0% loading and no fees or interest for foreign ATM withdrawals and purchases) and they are taking the insurance part away (along with the £5pm charge). Shame. I'll keep the card for the foreign usage though.

    This Mastercard was only offered for a short while - I don't see it mentioned here much.

    It was mentioned - was essentially a clone of the Halifax Clarity with travel insurance for £5. I think Sainsbury's bank was still a joint venture (with Halifax/Bank of Scotland) then too.

    Does anyone know of any other credit cards that include similar insurance policies ?

    Shame. My gold card hasn't been in use for a long while but I kept it simply for these benefits...


    @darren72, my recently acquired Amex Reward credit card has purchase and refund protection.
