If your travel carrier is delayed six or more hours, or if the delay results in an overnight stay, the cardholder and cardholder’s family under 22 years of age are each covered for up to $500 of relevant unreimbursed expenses. This perk includes items such as food, lodging, medicine and toiletries.
