Allianz Global Assistance Basic
I filed a very simple claim (airfare only), but I was still surprised at the swift satisfaction of the claim. I had a little problem with the on-line claim process, but I called customer support and the woman I spoke to was very helpful. The claim was fulfilled in about 8 business days and I received a check four days later. Very pleased.

On previous trip we filed a cancellation claim and were VERY pleased with the outcome. We received 100% of trip cost plus reimbursement for visa costs. That outcome reinforced our purchasing a policy from Allianz for this trip. As we did not file a claim on this trip, we cannot comment on the policy’s effectiveness. However, we were pleased with the offerings of the policy.

It is great to have an affordable insurance to cover myself when I go away out of the country in the winter. Good peace of mind,

Too expensive as it is duplicative. While the plan is fine for some people, I would like a cafeteria plan, as half of what you cover is covered by my credit card, and a fourth by the airlines. From that perspective I am paying twice for coverage I don't need.

    Thank you for providing feedback on this plan.

    Comprehensive Plans are the most widely known form of coverage and are often called package plans. Typically, a Comprehensive Plan will offer a variety of benefits for travelers, covering a wide range of concerns. Most provide coverage for Trip Cancellation, Trip-interruption, Baggage loss, Medical, Dental, Emergency Evacuation, 24 Hour Traveler Assistance, Baggage Delay, Travel Delay, and Accidental Death.

    In the future, please feel free to contact us when planning your next purchase. We may not be able to remove some of the coverages you already have with your credit card, but we can find policies that focus on the concerns that you do need coverage for. Our licensed representatives are available 7 days a week and can be reached at 1-800-487-4722.

Since we did not have a claim, I really can't rate responsiveness; however, the plan was provided in printable format and also a summary was provided so I could keep it on my phone. Most reasonable plan by far of those checked.

I have indicated completely satisfied, but in truth, until you have to use the plan you can't really make this judgment. Fortunately, we didn't have to use it or file a claim.

Allianz is a very responsible insurer, as best we can discern. Their rates are very competitive. We did not have a claim on this trip. However, on a prior trip we had a small claim for trip interruption. Allianz handled the claim very quickly and fairly. We hope to be able to insure with Allianz for any future trips.
