Allianz Global Assistance, a world leader in travel insurance and assistance services, can offer many reasons why smart people protect themselves and their families with travel insurance. They're the travelers we help every year through unanticipated travel delays, bad weather, lost luggage and medical emergencies in foreign countries.
In addition to the ringing endorsements of our valued customers, here are 10 reasons why smart travelers choose Allianz Travel Insurance for what's ahead.
With travel insurance, travelers don't have to pay for a trip they are unable to take.
Allianz Global Assistance provides coverage to replace needed items right away.1
Travel insurance will assist you in locating a pharmacy to purchase a new prescription. 2
That's almost one out of every two travelers. Travel insurance can provide peace of mind - especially for travel outside the United States, where many hospitals request cash payments in the thousands before treatment can even begin.
The majority of health insurance (including Medicare), worker's compensation insurance, third-party and personal liability policies don't cover international travel. In fact, a closer look at the inside of your passport will reveal that the government recommends travel insurance when traveling outside the United States.
Allianz Travel Insurance plans can cover the cost and help travelers get home quickly and safely.3
Even combined, they may not offset the cost of a medical emergency overseas.4
Purchasing through Allianz Global Assistance in advance helps travelers get the best coverage at the best cost.5
If a cruise line, airline or tour operator ceases operations due to financial hardship or bankruptcy, travel insurance saves travelers from paying for a trip they'll really never get to take.6
The loss of a job or other income might mean a trip planned in advance may have to wait. Travel insurance puts cash back into the hands of travelers when they need it most.
