The programs getting an upgrade include Citi Price Rewind, Trip Cancellation & Interruption Protection, Worldwide Car Rental Insurance, Trip Delay and Lost Baggage Protection.

“We now offer the longest coverage period of any major credit card company for damage and theft purchase protection.” said Paula Kelley, Managing Director, Customer Solutions, Citi Cards.
