*************Between Ourselves ********** . In netletter nr 6 we advised that Diners/Enroute will be charging $35 per year - the covering letter with this information stated that we are also covered to $300,000 insurance even travelling on a free pass. Sheldon Doskie sends the following information - Quote =================================================== However, besides the benefit of free collision insurance on car rentals, we are also covered for Air Travel Accident Insurance to the tune of $300k even when travelling on a pass! This is stated in the letter and confirmed to me by Marieka Pilon of Diner's Club/enRoute. I asked her if she could send me a written confirmation of that but she said that it's only applicable to Air Canada employees/retirees and they could not alter the master policy. So I guess that the letter then becomes part of the policy as far as we're concerned. Unquote ================================================== .
