Whether you want to streamline your workload with digital offer automation tools, educate and attract customers with on-demand marketing campaigns, or build your confidence in recommending travel insurance with self-paced training, we’ve got you covered.
Looking for a quick summary on what types of benefits a travel insurance plan includes, common covered reasons, tips on purchase timing, and other good-to-know details? You’ve come to the right place.
Because travel insurance is designed for protection from financial losses caused by unforeseeable issues, events that were public knowledge when your customer purchased their plan may not qualify as covered reasons for their plan benefits.
With the 24-hour assistance hotline access, included with every Allianz Travel Insurance plan, your customers won’t have to face a travel emergency or problem alone.
We’ve built epidemic-related covered reasons into some of our most popular travel insurance plans. Because the enhanced plans are approved for release at the state level, we launched the plans with covered reasons in approved states in March 2021, and they’re now available in all but a few states.
Non-refundable costs may include pre-paid trip deposits/payments that would be lost if you had to cancel for a covered reason prior to trip departure. Some examples can include cruise fares, conference fees, tours and airline ticket costs. Be sure to consult your travel suppliers to determine which costs are non-refundable for your particular trip, as cancellation policies vary.
Travel insurance from Allianz Global Assistance does not cover losses resulting from normal pregnancy or childbirth, except as expressly covered under Trip Cancellation.
While normal pregnancy and childbirth are not covered, unforeseen pregnancy complications may be a covered reason for trip cancellation or interruption. The medical condition you’re experiencing must be disabling enough to make a reasonable person cancel their trip, and a doctor must advise you to cancel it. If your plan includes emergency medical benefits, your insurance may reimburse you for the cost of emergency medical care that you received for those covered complications while traveling.
As long as they haven’t already departed on your trip or filed a claim, some plans may allow you to change certain details (such as insuring additional trip costs). For fastest service, visit our online policy management tool. You can refer to our five-step instructions for details on how to modify the policy online.
For the fastest service, they can cancel their policy by visiting our online policy management tool. For a full refund of your premium, they must cancel within 15 days of your plan purchase (or as determined by your state of residence) and must not have filed a claim or departed on your trip. Premiums are non-refundable after this period.
The fastest and easiest way is to file a claim on our website. To get started, they’ll need their email address or policy number, as well as their departure date or policy purchase date.
Documentation to support the claim is required before a claim examiner can review the claim. Find a list of supporting documents they may need here. Once they have filed their claim, they will receive a confirmation email.
