It's difficult to rate an insurance plan for which you didn't file a claim. The cost was reasonable.

Did not have to file a claim, so I cannot speak on how well they cover a claim.

It was significantly more costly than Allianz plans offered through other vehicles, i.e., the airlines. I chose not to go through the hassle of changing.
Like all insurance, it it's best when not used.

Fortunately, I didn't need to file a claim with Allianz, so can't really review the plan's effectiveness!

With the $300.00 cost of insurance I expected a bit more than $29.80 for my "travel delay" since it meant that I lost a day of vacation and a $150 non-refundable hotel reservation. Major tour operators insist that you purchase insurance but when placed a claim, I was told it only covers incidentals or major losses. After writing my review an adjuster can to my aid. I received $150 to recover the price of the nonrefundable hotel stay that I couldn't use because of a cancelled flight. The second check made me feel much better about travel insurance.

My trip to Israel was excellent and I had no problems that would have required a claim, but it was reassuring to know that I had this coverage if needed.

Compound leg fracture prevented travel. Allianz handled the claim promptly and paid the full amount specified in the claim. No followup necessary on our part once the claim was submitted. We've already bought a policy with Allianz for our next trip. Highly recommend this insurance company.
