Travel with accident protection
When you purchase your airline ticket with your covered First Heritage Platinum card you can receive $250,000 of accidental death and dismemberment coverage. This coverage applies to more than travel – it also can be in place when you have used your covered First Heritage Platinum card to purchase your ticket for travel via other forms of eligible transportation, such as a ferry, cruise ship, train or bus.
Coverage includes courtesy ground transportation to and from the airport (or train depot, bus terminal, etc.) and between terminals and while you are at the airport immediately before departure, or immediately after arrival on any covered trip.
