Trip delay reimbursement

What is this benefit?

Trip Delay Reimbursement covers up to a maximum of five hundred dollars ($500.00) for each purchased ticket, for reasonable additional expenses incurred when a Covered Trip You purchased with Your eligible UBS Visa Infinite Business card Account and/ or rewards program associated with Your covered Account is delayed for more than six (6) hours or requires an overnight stay. The benefit is limited to one claim per Covered Trip. To be eligible for this coverage, You need to purchase either a portion or the entire cost of Your Common Carrier fare using Your Account.
