The Visa Signature Concierge service is basically a glorified customer-service line that’s available to Visa Signature cardholders 24/7. What’s unique is that they’ll help you with certain types of special requests. They include booking dining, entertainment and recreation; coordinating travel; and delivering gifts.
The good news for folks who don’t have a Visa Signature credit card is most of that is pretty easy to do online without one.
The Visa Concierge Service provides Signature cardholders with free personal assistance around the clock. To make a request, visit the Visa Concierge website or call (800) 953-7392. There is no limit to the number of times a Visa Signature cardholder can use the service.
A concierge can help find tickets to concerts and sporting events, for example. They may also book travel arrangements, make dinner reservations and more.
While Visa’s Concierge Service is free, you’ll still have to pay for any products or services the concierge purchases at your direction. The concierge will charge all related costs to your Visa Signature card. The concierge cannot give any discounts on goods and services.
Here’s what the Visa Infinite concierge can do for you:
Recommend and book flights, hotels, cruises, rental cars, tours or other travel plans
Help you locate and make reservations at restaurants
Get tickets for plays, sporting events, concerts or other events as soon as they go on sale
Recommend things to do in the area in which you’re traveling
Reserve conference or meeting rooms
Get you access to translation, security or legal services
Help you rent equipment (computers, phones and more)
Recommend gifts, order them and arrange delivery
Help you track down difficult to find gift items
Assist you with your own unique requests
You can ask the Visa Infinite concierge to help you with pretty much anything you can imagine. They’ll do their best to assist you. And they should be able to complete most tasks within 24 to 48 hours.
Finally, it’s worth noting that you don’t need a Visa Infinite card to use a Visa concierge. Visa Signature cards offer a concierge service as well. Both concierges can handle the same range of requests, according to a Visa representative. But the Visa Infinite concierge gives cardholders access to a wider range of exclusive events, travel arrangements, and discounts.
Yes, the Visa credit card travel insurance is pretty good. It covers all Visa credit card users for damage or theft of rental cars. Some cards also provide coverage for accidents while traveling, trip cancellation and lost luggage. Plus, Visa credit card travel insurance never costs extra. You just have to pay for your travel with your Visa card to be eligible for any coverage it might have. But the exact amount of coverage you get, the claims procedures you have to follow, and other fine print depend on the bank or credit union that issues the card. It also makes a difference whether your card is a Visa Platinum, Visa Signature or Visa Infinite (least coverage to most coverage).… read full answer
Here are the types of Visa credit card travel insurance:
Trip accident: Should you or dependents you’re travelling with die or get seriously disfigured due to the fault of a travel provider, this policy will reimburse you or your family. The amount of money you can get varies, but it could be as much as $500,000 with certain cards. But not all cards will have this benefit.
Trip cancellation/interruption/delay: If your trip has to be ended early or moved because of things out of your control (e.g. death, injury, severe weather, military orders and more), you can get compensated for the inconvenience. Coverage might be up to $2,000 per trip, but not every card will have it.
Lost luggage: It’s hard to enjoy yourself on a trip if you don’t have any of your belongings. If your luggage gets lost or stolen, Visa may pay you for its value. You could get up to $3,000 per person per trip, but whether you have coverage depends on the card.
Rental car: Every Visa card should have this, no matter who issues it. If you rent a car with your Visa card and that car gets damaged or stolen, you can be reimbursed. But certain types of cars aren’t eligible (like expensive cars, RVs, motorcycles, and more) and certain situations aren’t either (like drunk driving). You can receive up to the full value of the rental vehicle.
So again, the best course of action is to check your card’s terms to find out what kind of coverage it has. And if you’re in the market for a new card, WalletHub’s editors have prepared a report on the cards with the best travel insurance to help you out.
