The Scotia Momentum VISA Infinite card combines maximum cash back with a unique program of premium enhancements that tap into your lifestyle needs including:
These insurance benefits are effective July 1, 2014.
Travel Emergency Medical Insurance7
As the primary cardholder, you, your spouse and accompanying dependent children are each automatically covered for up to $1 million in emergency medical coverage if sudden and unexpected illness or accidental injury should occur while travelling outside your province or territory of residence in Canada. The date of departure is counted as the first day. Coverage is automatically provided for eligible persons under 65 years of age for up to 15 consecutive days.
If you are under 65 years of age and are travelling for more than 15 days, you may choose to purchase Travel Extension Coverage from Scotia® Assist prior to your departure by calling 1 800 263-0997. You will receive a separate certificate of insurance if you choose to purchase this coverage.
Trip Interruption7 The Scotia Momentum VISA Infinite card can protect your travel investment with trip interruption insurance at no extra cost. You, your spouse, and your dependent children travelling with either parent, and one travelling companion travelling with you or your spouse are insured for up to $2,000 per insured person (maximum $10,000 per trip) for Trip Interruption. You must charge at least 75% of trip expenses to your Scotia Momentum VISA Infinite card.
If you require Trip Cancellation insurance or additional Trip Interruption insurance if the value of your trip exceeds these amounts, call 1 888 677-7444. Once your application for this insurance has been approved, you will receive an insurance policy that describes the benefits, exclusions and limitations.
You may be reimbursed for eligible reasonable living expenses incurred during the period of a delayed flight or missed connection which lasts four (4) hours or more to a limit of $500 per trip for all insured travellers. Simply charge at least 75% of the full cost of your tickets to your Scotia Momentum VISA Infinite card.
Delayed and Lost Baggage7
When you purchase common carrier tickets with your Scotia Momentum VISA Infinite card, you are eligible for coverage against the loss or the delay of your checked luggage. The lost luggage benefit is limited to the lesser of the replacement cost of the covered luggage or the cash value at the time of loss, to a maximum of $500. The carrier must provide you with a cash settlement before Scotia Momentum VISA Infinite card coverage will pay any benefit. The delayed luggage benefit is limited to $500 for all insured persons on the same trip for the cost of replacing essential items if your checked luggage is not delivered within four (4) hours from your time of arrival at your final destination.
Up to $500,000 Common Carrier Travel Accident Insurance7
When you charge at least 75% of the full cost of common carrier travel fares to your Scotia Momentum VISA Infinite card, you, your spouse and dependent children will be automatically insured against accidental loss of life, or dismemberment. Valid common carrier fares include fares for any licensed public conveyance such as airplanes, cruise ships, trains or buses.
Rental Car Collision/Loss Damage Insurance7
When you charge the entire cost of car rental to your Scotia Momentum VISA Infinite card and decline the agency's collision damage waiver or loss damage waiver (or similar provision) at the time of rental, you'll be insured if your rental vehicle is damaged, or stolen.
Purchase Security and Extended Warranty7
Most personal items purchased anywhere in the world are automatically insured against theft, loss or damage – as long as the full cost of the item is charged to your Scotia Momentum VISA Infinite card. Coverage extends for the first 90 days from the date of purchase and is in excess of any other insurance coverage. When you use your Scotia Momentum VISA Infinite card to purchase most personal items and charge the full cost of the item to your card, extended warranty coverage doubles the period of the original manufacturer's warranty for up to one additional year. Items covered by a manufacturer's warranty of five years or more must be registered within the first year of purchase. There is a maximum lifetime liability of $60,000 under the Purchase Security and Extended Warranty coverages.
Minimum Annual Income Required:
$60,000 annual personal income, $100,000 annual household income.
