Advantages of Allianz Global Assistance

There are several advantages to using Allianz Global Assistance for travel insurance. The company is dependable, backed by their presence as the preferred travel insurance provider by several major North American airlines. Also, although their product selection isn’t expansive, it offers coverage for practically any conceivable risk that could arise during travel, which makes them a reliable source of coverage, both within the country and/or continent, as well as overseas.

Here are some of the advantages of using Allianz Global for insurance coverage:

  • A simple shopping experience. One way Allianz benefits from only offering a few plans is that shopping for coverage is exceedingly simple. Interested shoppers select the policy that meets their needs and buys it, without having to understand complicated insurance jargon and select from a wide range of different coverage options.
  • The company offers big value. Some people don’t like working with massive insurers like Allianz because they feel they won’t be heard or they’ll have to wait to have their claims dealt with, but Allianz Global’s size is a plus for their insurance products. Because of the company’s enormous assets, it can offer a large dollar amount of coverage for a lower price, which has contributed to Allianz’s worldwide reputation.
  • Per-trip coverage options. Some companies make travelers buy a long-term travel policy, which wastes money if the policyholder doesn’t travel for any amount of time. Allianz offers plans that span the length of a single trip so that no money is being spent on travel coverage outside of the actual traveling.

Because of the value and flexibility that Allianz Global Assistance offers in a reliable way, the company has built itself a reputation in Ontario as a reliable insurer with a significant investment in the community.

Allianz Global Assistance Insurance Products

Allianz operates solely in the market for travel insurance, but its focus in the area has built the company up to the level of a global leader in the industry. Here are the products that the company offers.

Travel Insurance

Allianz Global Assistance offers 3 travel insurance plans:

  • Allianz Emergency Medical Coverage
  • Allianz Trip Protector Coverage
  • Allianz Comprehensive Coverage

Allianz Emergency Medical

This plan is a good fit for travelers with chronic health issues or frequent health concerns. If a health issue makes a traveler unable to board a flight to their destination, or needs medical services overseas, the company insures services up to 5 million dollars. If a policyholder needs emergency medical transportation, Allianz offers an unlimited benefit.

Allianz Trip Protector

This plan is a better fit for someone whose travel plans are a major investment: expensive flights, accommodations, etc. The plan insures baggage, as well as benefits in the event of trip cancellation, interruption or delay at any point along the way.

Allianz Comprehensive

Comprehensive trip insurance is the most expansive policy, combining the benefits of trip protector insurance with emergency medical insurance. Travelers are guaranteed the maximum benefits of both policies, ensuring that perils while traveling affect a trip as little as possible.
