I use the Capital One Professional Mastercard to pay for all deposits and payments for our travel.
A friend said that most of the better credit cards offer trip cancellation insurance and I was curious as to whether you've had any experience with travel cancellation coverage with your credit card company.
I've called Mastercard and Capital One, and have gotten four different answers.
"- Trip Cancellation Insurance
Protects you and your family against forfeited, non-refundable, unused payments and deposits if your trip is interrupted or cancelled and you have purchased your common carrier tickets with your eligible MasterCard card."
