Allianz Global Assistance Basic
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!

We had to cancel the trip at the last minute because of illness and filed a claim for the covered loses. I had to send the documents three times before Allianz acknowledged receipt. They then paid my claim in full, even adding in an item I had missed.

The only defect with this plan is that it can't be altered once you leave the US, i.e. if during you trip you decide to make an extra excursion which adds to the sum originally insured. Is there any solution to this dilemma?

    Thank you for your inquiry. Trip Cancellation reimburses you for your prepaid out-of-pocket expenses should you cancel the trip for a covered reason so, if you do not go on the trip, you would not have the additional expense that would have been booked while you were on the trip. Likewise, if you were not feeling well while on the trip, then it is unlikely that you would book an excursion or other activity. Of course, we do agree that there are always incidents that may arise that would not be covered by any of the Comprehensive plans, so we will bring your comment to management's attention.

Nothing terrible happened, but it could have. We were on a river cruise for several days, and the ship's doctor lacked even such basic supplies as butterfly sutures. Herbal wraps are helpful for swelling, but don't solve the problems of a deep or long cut.
