Protection when travelling

Mastercard PLatinum

If you are a frequent traveller our Platinum Credit Card could be ideal for you. It comes with travel cancellation insurance cover. It also gives you flight delay, lost baggage and hire car excess cover.

Travel cancellation insurance

There's always a chance you can’t go on holiday or you have to interrupt it because of troubles at home such as a member of your family being admitted to hospital. This travel cancellation insurance covers the costs of cancelling personal trips that you have paid for using a KBC payment method. If you're already on holiday and have to return early, you'll receive compensation for the number of day's holiday you miss. You are covered for claims of up to 10,000 euros.

Flight delay insurance

If your flight is delayed by more than four hours, this flight delay insurance covers you for expenses incurred for food and drink or additional overnight accommodation for up to 150 euros per person. It does not apply if equivalent alternative transport was available or if the delay was due to a protest, strike, or trade union action.

Lost baggage insurance

If your baggage has gone missing when you arrive, this lost baggage insurance covers you for expenses incurred for urgent purchases of necessary replacement clothing and toiletry articles. You will be entitled, depending on the situation, to compensation of between 250 euros and 750 euros. It does not apply, for instance, if you failed to collect your baggage, or checked it in too late.

Hire car excess insurance

If the car you hired abroad has been damaged or stolen, this hired car excess insurance repays you the excess that the rental company's car insurer charges you. It does not apply, for instance, to trailers or if a negative travel advice was applicable at the start of your trip.

Extra protection for what you buy on your card

Extended guarantee and purchase protection

If you buy an expensive jumper and accidentally tear the sleeve a week later on a door handle or your dishwasher, TV or power drill suddenly gives up the ghost after three years, this extended guarantee insurance adds a further two years to the two-year warranty required by law. What’s more, your purchases are protected against accidental damage and aggravated theft (involving violence or forced entry) for up to 90 days after purchase thanks to the purchase protection insurance. Most important exclusions are damage you have caused intentionally or ordinary wear and tear.

Online purchase protection

Mastercard Platinum online purchase protection

This online purchase insurance provides you with protection for online purchases from an online retailer (from the EU or US). If the new refrigerator that you purchased online was damaged upon delivery or was not the item you ordered we will make sure that you get your money back if the supplier refuses to accept responsibility. Most important exclusions are aesthetic damage (scratches, dents) or damage you have caused intentionally.

Be careful when buying online. If an online deal is too good to be true, it often isn't. Check if an unknown online store has a Trust mark quality label and read customer reviews.

Cancellation insurance for your admission tickets

If your buy tickets to a sporting event or concert, but are unexpectedly sick, this insurance repays you the unused tickets for up to 500 euros. It does not apply, for instance, to tickets that can be exchanged, or to season tickets.

Get the highest spending limit

The standard spending limit is set at 7,500 euros and we can always discuss any higher limit you might feel the need for.

Spread your repayments over time

You can stagger repayment of what you spend on your credit card thanks to the KBC Flex Budget facility linked to your KBC Platinum Credit Card. This extra cash reserve can be repaid at your own pace. In exchange for a certain rate of interest, you choose how much you pay off every month.
