Does Citi Prestige or Chase Saphire Rsv protect you at all if AirBnB host cancels?

I've had two good stays at AirBnB's over the last few years, but am now considered a nice looking place where there aren't any reviews. Host seems to have been a guest at other places, with solid reviews.

So my concern is that if they cancel for any reason (trip is 6 weeks out) would the credit card insurance provide any protection? Anyone ever tried that?

Thanks

no and very few specific trip insurances will either. Airbnb will help you

In my experience, Airbnb is of limited help. When faced with a late cancellation for a trip last month, was offered a refund or credit. At 48 hours to outbound flight, there were not many alternatives available, other than to book with one of Airbnb's "super hosts" at a cost of $450 more. After back and forth with Airbnb customer service, they offered nothing to compensate for the higher cost.
