All,

   Beware, those who are considering upgrading to the new Marriott Premium Plus credit card.  The additional points for charges are nice, but when I asked about downsides to upgrade, they neglected to mention that the Premium Plus DOES NOT INCLUDE TRAVEL CANCELLATION INSURANCE, whereas the regular Premium credit card does include travel insurance (when you purchase travel with the card).  Two Chase reps I spoke with incorrectly told me that it does include the insurance.  I insisted they check with the benefits administrator

who confirmed that the new card does NOT include the insurance.
