  1. Airline and hotel rewards: American Express offers Membership Rewards points that can be earned with qualifying purchases and can be redeemed for flights, hotel stays, car rentals, and more through their travel partners.
  2. Airport lounge access: Many American Express cards provide complimentary access to airport lounges, such as the American Express Centurion Lounges, Delta Sky Club, and Priority Pass Select lounges. Cardholders and their guests can enjoy amenities like complimentary food and beverages, comfortable seating, and Wi-Fi.
  3. Travel insurance: American Express credit cards often include travel insurance coverage, which may include trip cancellation/interruption insurance, baggage insurance, and travel accident insurance. The coverage details may vary depending on the specific card.
  4. Global Assist Hotline: American Express cardholders can access the Global Assist Hotline, a 24/7 assistance service providing help with travel emergencies, medical and legal referrals, and more when cardholders are away from home.
  5. Car rental privileges: American Express credit cards often provide access to special discounts and benefits when renting a car with select rental companies. These benefits may include car rental loss and damage insurance, priority service, and upgrades.
