Travel Insurance Reviews Allianz Global Assistance Classic

The Allianz Classic plan is a step up from the Basic plan in that it has higher limits of coverage and a more robust list of covered reasons for trip cancellation and trip interruption. With features like comprehensive trip cancellation and primary emergency medical coverage, 24-hour travel assistance, and optional benefits to tailor the plan to your travel needs, the Allianz Classic plan is a good plan for people or families going on vacation. Plus, kids 17 and under are covered for free when traveling with a parent or grandparent.

We never had need to use the plan -- but that's the "insurance".

I didn't file a claim but I liked how relatively inexpensive it was and worth the peace of mind.

Thankfully, did not need to file a claim and our trip went well, but I thought the coverage seemed like it covered a lot for the price. I would definitely get coverage again through this website.

I was not able to make the trip due to a hospitalization and treatment. Allianz Global denied the claim determining the cause, and eating disorder, was neurosis driven, and not a medical condition despite serious health risks related to heart condition, vital nutrients and other medical factors. An eating disorder is a disease and the policy and interpretation of the policy resulted in a denial of the claim, even though a medical doctor stated not fit to travel and such information was provided to Allianz Global, our appeal was denied, they absolutely suck, their marketing and promotion is totally bogus, they will find a way to deny a claim.

    Thank you for your feedback on the policy. We are sorry to learn that you were prevented from traveling. A Brand Care Specialist from Allianz Global Assistance has issued the following reply:

    "I apologize for the inconvenience. Our policies have comprehensive coverage, however they do not cover everything. Sadly, we do not cover mental health illnesses and eating disorders are classified under mental health.

    I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. If you have any questions, feel free to email me back.

    Thank you,

    Brittany.Ryan@allianzassistance.com"

When I purchased the plan, I accidently put in the wrong dates(off by 2 weeks). I called and the rep was very helpful and reassuring. Thanks!

During travel earlier this year by a close relative, he discovered how valuable his insurance plan purchased with this group was. Fortunately he didn't need to use it for any catastrophic episode but he was able to file a claim and be reimbursed for the portion of his trip he could not use because of a knee injury he incurred on a walk through a foreign city. He convinced us to purchase from this group and while we did not need to file any claims, we had peace of mind that this group would have taken care of our needs.

When I travel outside the US I am only concerned with emergency medical situations. This plan covered that and was very reasonably priced. I will definitely use Allianz in future.

The cost seems a bit high since I am sure that a strong majority of people never need to file a claim. The car rental option should have a higher maximum value. $40,000 does not cover a decent rental vehicle.

I appreciate the complete paperwork that you sent, and that you sent me a reminder just before my departure date.
