I’ve been using my ICC as a store of MR points and for insurance.

I keep hold of the Platinum ICC as it allows me to store MR while closing all UK MR cards, retains SQ 1:1 and is much cheaper than buying travel insurance in Australia. I keep thinking of consolidating, I have a US Amex where I could move the points to (and actually spend on, given the lack of forex fees), so it really is just a travel insurance policy for me, but I think even that alone means it pays for itself.

That’s a good point about the Platinum ICC insurance. Unfortunately the cover from my plain old ICC Green is not nearly as compelling!

Amex UK currently won’t issue new cards to Guernsey residents so churning is not an option for me but that is also a great point about the utility of the ICC cards. Not something that had occurred to me but makes a lot of sense.
