The OneTrip Premier Plan is, quite simply, the best travel insurance plan offered by Allianz Global Assistance. But it may not be the best travel insurance plan for every traveler.
You might not need $50,000 in emergency medical coverage, for instance, or $1 million in emergency medical transportation. It all depends on your destination, your health and your unique needs. Here are in-depth travel insurance reviews for both OneTrip Premier and OneTrip Prime so you can compare and choose the right one.
Here's the upshot: Both plans give you robust coverage for all crucial travel eventualities, including trip interruption and cancellation, travel and baggage delays, emergency medical and dental coverage and emergency medical transportation. In general, the OneTrip Premier Plan doubles the coverage of the OneTrip Prime Plan for most post-departure benefits.
