Allianz Global Assistance Basic
My wife and I had planned our 25th Wedding Anniversary 3-week trip to the Mid-East (Israel, Jordan, and Istanbul)in June 2012.

I did not purchase Trip Insurance when the airline tickets were booked, but my wife kept suggesting that given the political unrest, we should buy the insurance which I did in January 2013.

Exactly one week prior to our May 12th departure, I fell in our home. I went to the Urgent Care Center in Wilmington, DE thinking that I had only bruised a muscle in my leg. X-rays were taken and the attending physician asked if I had travel insurance informing me that I had fractured my fibula and would be in no condition to travel to the Mid-East.

I filed an onlineclaim with Allianz and provided all of the necessary medical recorts, trip costs, etc. Our claim was promptly handled and we were sent checks to reimburse us for the the cost of our tickets to the mid-easet. Allianz was fantastic.

I will never plan another trip without also purchasing Trip Insurance.

Although I did not need to file a claim, having this insurance provided me with a great deal of peace of mind. Our connecting flight to our international flight was delayed three times and we barely made our international flight to Israel. I kept telling myself that we could resolve this, if necessary, through our Allianz insurance, but we fortunately did not need to do that. One more reason not to travel without trip insurance!

In this day and age it pays to have a plan. We did not have to use it but it was comforting to know it was there if we needed it.

My trip to Israel was excellent and I had no problems that would have required a claim, but it was reassuring to know that I had this coverage if needed.
