Allianz Global Assistance Basic
Had to cancel our entire trip due to illness. This was the first time we had to make use of our travel insurance. Our claim was paid promptly. We are grateful for the ease of filing our claim and for the speed in which the claim was paid. Will definitely make use of this insurance again.

Since becoming senior citizens, I now generally use the Allianz Global Assistance Basic plan on our international trips! Thankfully in well over 50 international trips, we only once had to cancel (earlier this year on an Asia cruise) due to emergency back surgery! We submitted a claim and Allianz handled it in a very prompt and professional manner! I highly recommend Allianz!

For my last trips, I have bought travel insurance but am glad, I did not need it. However, the need was shown to me when a friend was not so lucky when getting ill in Africa, she had to interrupt, with a relative's and nurse help be transferred to an ICU etc. Without insurance. it would be impossible. Very good warning.

Glad I didn't need it, but nice to know it was backing me up. When you have to book international travel months in advance this coverage is good to have. Easy to buy, good terms.

A week before a planned trip to South Africa my wife had emergency surgery. Fortunately we were insured with Allianz Global Assistance since we incurred over $10,000 in non refundable charges. We provided thorough documentation with our claim and Allianz paid in full. Not one problem. It was the first trip we insured but it won't be the last. We will use Allianz for all of our trips and suggest you do too.

Unfortunately, I had to be hospitalized in South Africa. Fortunately, I had my Allianz Global Assistance travel insurance. They were so helpful and paid the hospital costs. I had to pay other costs related to ER and the doctors bill up front, but they reimbursed me. I was so happy I had the policy.
