Here’s what Chase told Business Insider. (Responses have been edited for clarity.) 

Which Chase cards provide trip cancellation/interruption insurance? 

All Sapphire cards (the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card and the Chase Sapphire Reserve), United Club and United Presidential Plus, the World of Hyatt Credit Card, most IHG cards, the Ink Business Preferred Credit Card, and Ink Plus.

The Chase Freedom, United Explorer Card, and Starbucks card also include Trip Cancellation/Interruption insurance that covers non-refundable Common Carrier passenger fares (such as flights or a cruise.)

What if I become ill with the coronavirus?

As always, cardmembers and their travel companions whose illness prevents them from traveling are covered under the trip cancellation or trip interruption protections with their credit card.  They will receive the same coverage if they’re quarantined.

What if my destination is impacted by the coronavirus?

We always want to help our customers. While the policy doesn’t explicitly cover this, we will work with our cardmember to help find solutions. If a cardmember has a question on their coverage, they can reach out to us.

What do I do if my trip might be impacted? 

Cardmembers should check their benefit details for their card for specifics, or can reach out to Chase with questions. 

While benefit coverage may not technically cover some of the instances currently causing concern, we will continue to work with our cardmembers to help find solutions to travel that might need to be modified.
