Can't really rate the plan because I didn't need to file a claim to rate Global Alliance insurance.

A very big hassle if your bags are lost and you want reimbursement. They want copy of receipts for everything.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are sorry to learn that your luggage was lost.

    The Allianz Global Assistance Basic policy does include Baggage Loss benefits. Receipts and documentation are required to support a claim. This policy has a maximum of 500 USD per person for Baggage Loss and is covered as follows:

    "Actual price, actual cash value, repair or replacement (whichever is less):
    • actual price is the amount it would cost to buy a similar item.
    • actual cash value is the amount the item is worth based on its current market value. If you don’t have an original receipt, we’ll cover up to 75% of its current market value.
    • repair or replacement is the cost to repair or replace the item."

    As your plan states, they will cover up to 75% of the item's current market
    value if you do not have a receipt. However, you still need to provide a list
    of the items lost or damaged.

    If you have any additional concerns, please contact our office at 800-487-4722 where a licensed representative would be happy to help you.

Allianz was fantastic! My souse passed away and I had to cancel our cruise. The cruise line was not going to give us any money back, so I am so glad I used Allianz Insurance and I just received a refund- in only 3 weeks! I will tell everyone to use them & insuremytrip!
