  • Charlie,
    Wouldnt you loose your travel Ins coverage if you pay with gift card rather than your credit card? Like for delays?

    • Yes, you would. But, in all of my travel, I have never had a delay with Southwest that cost me more than I would save with something like this. Not saying it can’t/won’t happen! So it is something to think about. Another aspect of the insurance is that you can easily get your gift card refunded if you need to cancel for any reason without needing insurance.
