Preferred Visa Signature Credit Card Trip Delay Terms & Conditions
Trip delay reimbursement
What is this benefit?
When terms and conditions are met, Trip Delay Reimbursement is one-time per ticket/trip coverage that will reimburse you for reasonable additional expenses incurred when a trip you’ve purchased entirely with your eligible UBS Preferred Visa Signature credit card is delayed for more than twelve (12) hours. The benefit covers up to a maximum of three hundred dollars ($300.00) per ticket.
Who is eligible for this benefit?
You, your spouse, and your dependent children under twenty-two (22) years of age are automatically covered when you charge your trip’s entire Common Carrier fare to your eligible UBS Preferred Visa Signature credit card. (A “Common Carrier” is any land, water, or air conveyance operating for hire under a valid license for the transportation of passengers and for which a ticket must be purchased prior to commencing travel. “Common Carrier” does not include taxis, limousine services, commuter rail or commuter bus lines, or rental vehicles.)
What is covered?
Your reasonable additional expenses, such as meals and lodging, may be reimbursed as long as:
• The entire fare was purchased with an eligible Visa card
• Your trip was delayed for more than twelve (12) hours due to Covered Hazards (“Covered Hazards” include: equipment failure, inclement weather, strike, and hijacking/skyjacking)
• Your trip is for a period of round-trip travel to a destination other than your city of residence and the departure and return dates of your trip do not exceed three hundred and sixty-five (365) days
This benefit is supplemental coverage, which means that reasonable expenses during the delay not otherwise covered by your Common Carrier, another party or your primary personal insurance policy, may be reimbursed up to $300.00 per ticket.
What is not covered?
The following are not covered under this benefit:
• Any delay due to a Covered Hazard which was made public or made known to you prior to your departure
• Any pre-paid expenses related to your trip, such as preferred seating, etc.
