I found it very easy to identify the Allianz Basic plan as the one providing the coverage I wanted and nothing more at the best price.

Didn't need to use it so can't comment on the claim process which is the true test of a good plan.

My initial claim was rejected until I provided more info. My claim was for some rather small medical costs, however when I spoke to the Allianz rep, he kept insisting that I provide proof of my rental costs. Finally he spoke to a supervisor that cleared that up. Ultimately I got a small check and a letter that told me that I miscalculated the conversion costs. No further explanation. I never converted anything; I stated everything in pesos, just as I had paid for them and for which I provided receipts. It just made no sense and it wasn't explained. Since it wasn't a large amount of money I decided not to pursue the issue.

Hard to say how good or bad a program is,as I never have filed a claim. Not obvious from the verbage in the policy is that you have to go through the process of filing a claim with your insurers (example, health insurance) first, get it rejected by your insurer, and then the travel policy will pay. This implies that you have to have sufficient funds on hand when you travel to foreign countries to pay for expenses. The policy should be better structured to help you if you need help NOW!!!, rather than being reimbursed several months in the future.

I would never again travel without some sort of travel insurance, and I probably won't use any other insurance company other than Allianz. This is my 5th time with them and I have recommended this company to many of my friends.

Fortunately, I did not have to file a claim, but was at ease knowing that I was fully covered in case of any incident that would have required me to file a claim.

My tour guide had recommended two other travel insurance companies but I researched and found you and then confirmed that my brother used Allianz also which seemed to provide coverage at better rate. I then told others who were going on the same tour.
