Emergencies can escalate quickly when you are traveling away from home. Something that is relatively straightforward when you are not traveling, like replacing prescription medication, can be a difficult task when you are dealing with local laws or language barriers.
Travel and Emergency Assistance Services are made available to help you in case of an emergency while you are traveling away from home. The Benefit Administrator can connect you with the appropriate local emergency and assistance resources available, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Please note that due to occasional issues such as distance, location, or time, neither the Benefit Administrator nor its service providers can be responsible for the availability, use, cost, or results of any medical, legal, transportation, or other services.
Travel and Emergency Assistance Services are made available to you if you are a cardholder of an eligible card issued in the United States. Your spouse and children (dependents under 22 years old) are also eligible to use these services. Travel and Emergency Assistance Services provide assistance and referral only. You are responsible for the cost of any actual medical, legal, transportation, cash advance, or other services or goods provided.
To use the services, simply call the toll-free, 24-hour Benefit Administrator line at 1-800-992-6029. If you are outside the United States, call collect at 1-804-673-1675.

No cardholder wants to incur the expense of repairing or replacing a rented car. But accidents do happen, and vehicles do get stolen.
No matter what happens to your rental car, you can be covered with Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver. Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver reimburses you for damages caused by theft or collision – up to the Actual Cash Value of most rented cars. Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver covers no other type of loss. For example, in the event of a collision involving your rented vehicle, damage to any other driver’s car or the injury of anyone or anything is not covered. Rental periods of fifteen (15) consecutive days within your country of residence, and thirty-one (31) consecutive days outside it, are both covered. (Longer rental periods, however, are not covered.)
You are eligible for this benefit if your name is embossed on an eligible card issued in the United States and you use it to initiate and complete your entire car rental transaction. Only you as the primary car renter and any additional drivers permitted by the Rental Car Agreement are covered.
Use your covered Account to secure and complete your car rental transaction
Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver covers theft, damage, valid loss-of-use charges imposed and substantiated by the auto rental company, administrative fees, and reasonable and customary towing charges, due to covered theft or damage to the nearest qualified repair facility.
If you do have personal automobile insurance or other insurance that covers theft or damage, this benefit reimburses you for the deductible portion of your car insurance or other insurance, along with any unreimbursed portion of administrative and loss-of-use charges imposed by the car rental company, as well as reasonable towing charges while the car was your responsibility.
If you do not have personal automobile insurance or any other insurance, the benefit reimburses you for covered theft, damage, or administrative and loss-of-use charges imposed by the rental company, as well as reasonable towing charges that occur while you are responsible for the vehicle.
If you are renting outside of your country of residence, the coverage provided under this benefit is primary and reimburses you for covered theft, damage, or administrative and loss-of-use charges imposed by the rental company, as well as reasonable towing charges that occur while you are responsible for the vehicle.
TIP: Before you leave the lot, be sure to check the card for any prior damage.
Before you leave the lot, be sure to check the car for any prior damage.

However, this benefit is not available where precluded by law, or where it’s in violation of the territory terms of the auto rental agreement, or when prohibited by individual merchants. Because regulations vary outside the United States, check with your auto rental company and the Benefit Administrator before you travel, to be sure that Auto Rental Collision Damage Waiver will apply.

Product warranties can be inconvenient and cumbersome to use. Let’s say you purchased a great gadget about a year ago, but it just stopped working, and you can’t find your sales receipt and warranty information. For all too common situations like these, Extended Warranty Protection can help.
