Delayed flight or missed connection?

KBC will pay your additional expenses

If your flight is delayed or you miss your plane because your train was late, you can claim back a fixed amount for each person to reimburse the cost of beverages and food purchased while waiting, if the airline will not compensate you.

What does it cover?

This insurance covers you for expenses incurred for food and drink or additional overnight accommodation not paid for by the carrier if your journey experiences more than four hours' delay, e.g. due to cancellation or delay of confirmed transport arrangements, boarding being declined due to overbooking or for any other insured cause. The insurance is valid for travel to a foreign destination.

When are you covered?

Compensation
  • A maximum of 150 euros per insured person and a maximum of 1 500 euros for the entire group travelling together (amounts for the total journey there and back, regardless of the number of KBC credit cards and accounts in the family)
Main conditions
  • The trip itself must have been paid for with a KBC means of payment
  • The necessary expenses must have been paid for using your KBC Platinum Credit Card

 

Main exclusions

The policy does not apply

  • if the delay was due to a protest, strike or trade union action that was already underway or had been announced at least 24 hours prior to the start of the trip
  • if equivalent alternative transport was available
  • for charter flights

This insurance is free of charge and optional. You must register for the insurance policy in order to benefit from its cover.
