Allianz Global Assistance Basic
One of our connecting flights was cancelled due to weather. Consequently, we arrived at our hotel one day late. I pre-paid for the hotel and they would not refund the one lost night. I applied for reimbursement through Allianz Global Assistance, uploaded the relevant documents and received the settlement in ~ 2 weeks. One issue: applying online was easier than talking to a representative.

I cancelled my original trip for which I bought this insurance. The bad news - no refund, BUT, the good news, nothing lost - i can use this insurance on another trip for 770 days after I made the original purchase!! Would definately recommend this to anyone traveling anywhere!!

I think an insurance policy is only as good as meeting your full expectations when filing a claim and the ease in which the claim is to file. Thank goodness I did not have to do that. As far as covering all my needs for coverage the policy was excellent and Allianz was easy to work with on answering any concerns I had.

Easy to purchase. The average daily cost seemed a bit expensive to me.

I didn't even get hurt in Cuba, why did I even need this???

I felt very safe and comfortable knowing that I had an insurance plan in the unlikely event that something bad happened. The rates were very affordable and it gave myself and my girlfriend peace-of-mind when leaving the US.

Thanks for everything. 5 Stars.

It was significantly more costly than Allianz plans offered through other vehicles, i.e., the airlines. I chose not to go through the hassle of changing.
Like all insurance, it it's best when not used.

Well, It is VERY difficult to know he true worth of an insurance plan if you do not have to file a claim. I was looking for a reasonable policy to cover my needs & the one I purchased did meet that goal. I did like the ease of comparison shopping on the site.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are sorry to learn that your trip was cancelled. Unfortunately, the Allianz Global Assistance
    Basic plan does not cover Trip Cancellation due to the Financial Insolvency of a travel supplier.

    In the future, please call us at 800-487-4722 prior to purchasing a plan so that we can can help you select a plan that covers your primary concerns.
