Allianz Global Assistance Basic
We have used Allianz for EVERY TRIP over $1,000. It is not only peace of mind, but our insurance has paid of 2 times out of 8-10 times! WELL worth the money, and we won't use any other insurance due to their helpful staff when we have had an issue, as well as prompt emails, and quick and easy checks processed on our claims! Amazing company we use again and again ....and AGAIN! THANK YOU for your service! We appreciate you and glad you are just a click away on another trip! :)

15% 0f potential loss is too much to pay.

    Thank you very much for your review. Your Comprehensive plan premium is calculated based on the travelers' ages, the cost of your trip, and the length of the trip, so the premium will be a greater percentage of your premium.

This is somewhat akin to reviewing a meal not tasted. It may look good but can only be accurately judged by eating the meal or using the product.

Subscribed too late to have the coverage I wanted. Should have gotten insurance when I purchased air fares.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy.

    The best time to purchase travel insurance is right after you put money down towards your trip. Some policies include time sensitive benefits which are but not limited to pre-existing condition waiver, financial default, Cancel For Any Reason and Cancel For Work Reasons. Most plans require that you purchase a policy within 10 - 30 days of your initial trip payment, and insure all prepaid non refundable trip costs to receive these time sensitive benefits.

    Please call us at 800-487-4722 if you have any questions or concerns.

I had no need to use it, but it seemed to be a fair price for being insured.

I have never needed to collect on trip insurance, but I am more comfortable knowing that I am covered. Especially regarding an illness or injury that occurs while I'm away.

The web site was easy to navigate and answered all my questions and the price was as good or better than anyone else.

Allianz saved us from a disastrous Florida vacation trip interrupted by Mother's illness. I was contacted by a senior claims agent four days after filing our claim and received a check for our trip interruption claim amounts within 12 days of filing the claim. We were notified by e-mail even earlier as to the amount we would receive on the claim. We found their customer service reps to be helpful and claims personnel outstanding. Fortunately we also had them for coverage for a United Airlines flight during the same trip and they worked the polices seamlessly. Great Travel Insurance Company, efficient and user friendly; the best we've ever used!
