What is a credit card protection plan?

A credit card protection plan is a part of Card Protection Plan or CPP. It is an insurance scheme that provides coverage against financial losses due to the loss of payment cards and PAN cards. Cardholders can purchase this plan against a nominal yearly premium. CPP helps protect your cards against the risk of loss, fraud, and damages.

Card protection plans also offer other useful features. This includes blocking your card with a phone call, emergency travel assistance, and more. Here is a detailed look at all the benefits that CPP has to offer.

Features and benefits of CPP

The CPP Wallet Care plan provides coverage of up to Rs. 2 lakh, at an annual subscription fee of just Rs. 699. Given below are the features of this card protection plan offered through Bajaj Finance:
