Allianz Global Assistance Basic
Although did not need to use it (make a claim), had a great peace of mind knowing my trip was covered for any unforeseen situation. I recommend for those taking an expensive trip, especially overseas.

My only problem was the lack of info on rental-auto coverage, I.e. that I could have purchased coverage. No harm occurred, I'm happy to say, but I would've liked to know my options in advance of the trip. Otherwise, having the policy made me feel much more secure during the trip.

    Thank you very much for bringing up this issue in your review.

    Allianz Global Assistance does offer Rental Car Collision/Loss as an optional coverage in their plans. You can review this offering when comparing your quotes. The additional premium will be shown in parenthesis following the coverage. If you forget to include the coverage when purchasing the plan, you may always add it later with an email request.

    Please also remember that you may call customer care at (800) 487-4722 for assistance when quoting.

A little pricey. The older we get, the more expensive it gets. Just like everything else!

i tried to cancel this policy because i could not take the trip due to an illness. i got a full credit which Ibwill use in the future. but your company would not cancel the insurance. i guess i need insurance to cover useless insurance costs.

    Unfortunately neither Allianz nor InsureMyTrip received your request to cancel this policy until we received this review. By then, it was too late since the request came in well after the policy's expiration date of 04/01/2017.

While it was not necessary to file a claim, having peace of mind that any travel snafus would be covered was well worth the investment.

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!

We purchased the insurance, which we thought was reasonable enough. However, fortunately we did not have to use it. So, we really do not have any experience to report.
