Everyone wants to feel secure when they leave the country to travel. Allianz Global Assistance puts clients at ease before, during, and after travel, reassuring them that they’re taken care of should an unexpected situation arise. Some may see trip insurance as an unnecessary expense, but in fact, travelers who don’t purchase it often end up wishing that they had.
The government recommends that Americans purchase travel insurance when taking trips outside the country, because life can be unpredictable. Whether a trip needs to be postponed last-minute, an illness arises far from home or the airline loses a piece of luggage, travel insurance can help.
One of the world’s leading travel insurance companies, Allianz Global Assistance is known for its innovations:
- SmartBenefits℠, a suite of benefits available with certain plans, let customers opt to receive a fixed inconvenience payment of $100 per insured person, per day, for a covered travel delay or baggage delay (up to the maximum no-receipts limit). You don’t have to submit any receipts, just proof of delay. In some cases, Allianz Global Assistance can send the payment proactively if the covered travel delay occurs on a monitored flight.
- The free TravelSmart™ app gives customers quick mobile access to their travel insurance plan. It also connects travelers to local emergency services and 24-Hour Hotline Assistance.
- A streamlined claims process offers simpler forms, mobile claims filing and the option of receiving your claim payment by direct deposit or debit card deposit.
- 24-Hour Hotline Assistance, which is included in all travel protection plans from Allianz Global Assistance, ensures travelers have access to help around the clock. The Assistance team can help travelers access high-quality medical care in an emergency; arrange emergency medical transportation, if needed, to the nearest qualified medical facility or hospital following a covered illness or injury; assist with making new travel arrangements; help travelers replace lost or stolen travel documents; fill prescriptions at a local pharmacy; and much more.
Allianz Global Assistance knows that not every traveler needs the same kind of insurance, so it offers many plans for diverse kinds of travelers.
For travelers on a budget, OneTrip Basic is a basic, affordably priced travel insurance plan that includes the essential benefits. This plan can help if their trip gets interrupted, cancelled or delayed; if they have covered medical emergencies; or if they lose luggage with items valued up to a few hundred dollars.
OneTrip Prime, Allianz Global Assistance’s most popular plan, offers a full slate of benefits, including SmartBenefits℠, for reliable peace of mind. OneTrip Prime is designed to protect more expensive trips. It provides higher benefit limits for those traveling with more valuable luggage, as well as higher benefit maximums for covered medical emergencies. OneTrip Prime also covers kids 17 and under for free when traveling with a parent or grandparent.
Top-tier plan OneTrip Premier provides double the post-departure benefits of OneTrip Prime for robust travel protection. It also covers children 17 and under for free when they’re traveling with a parent or grandparent.
