    This one seems to surprise some folks who have medical issues overseas and discover they do not have proper medical coverage. Definitely one to be aware of for international flyers.

    Great find! I still seem to have trouble with #1: Overpacking. I find myself packing for a trip the evening prior to departure, then removing several items in the morning. It's amazing how easy it is to pack too much.

    Question. If I used the Chase Sapphire Preferred card to pay for the taxes/fees for my award tickets, do I still receive the insurances? I read the T&Cs and it said I would only receive coverage if I paid the full-fare ticket with the CC.
