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.

We did not need to use the travel insurance, but I have peace of mind knowing we would be covered.

We didn’t have to use the insurance because we had no health or travel related problems but having some coverage provided peace of mind.

We were delayed more than 48 hours returning from vacation due to a nor'easter. When we got home I filed a claim for the extra nights at the hotel. It was easily done on line. I submitted necessary proofs and we received a check within two weeks. I would highly recommend Allianz Global for travel insurance.

When trying to make a claim, (on a previous trip), I was greeted with incompetence. I have never had a good experience with Allianz. I would be embarrassed if this were my company.

    We are very sorry to hear that you did not have a positive experience with Allianz on a previous claim. It does not appear that you purchased that Allianz plan through InsureMyTrip, so we would have been unable to assist you as your "Any Time Advocate". However, you may not wish to give up on Allianz who is a reputable travel insurer offering various levels of coverage with their Basic, Classic or Classic Trip Plus plans.

    InsureMyTrip is available to you weekdays from 7:00 AM to midnight ET and weekends 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM for assistance in quoting and purchasing a policy. Please also remember our promise of "Unparalleled Customer Service":

We did not go to St. Maarten do to the hurricane damage. We recovered most of our payments other than the cost of the insurance plan. So we didn't put in a claim.
