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.

Since we didn't file a claim, we didn't have to use the plan. However, it was nice to have the insurance if we needed it. Gave my wife peace of mind.

They processed my claim very fast through their client portal and sent the reimbursement via direct deposit within 10 days of the claim. After having tried other old fashioned insurance companies, this was the best news during my illness while traveling abroad. Highly recommended!

Luckily, we did not have to use the insurance but felt better having it. People on the phone that we talked to were very helpful and nice.
If we go again, we will get back to you but now glad to be home.

I did need to go to a doctor while I was in Croatia but I didn't bother filing a claim as my expense was very near the cost of the deductible amount on the policy. It did give me peace of mind to have that insurance.
