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 didn't file a claim this trip, but we did file a claim with Allianz on a previous trip. That claim was promptly paid in full. We love having the reassurance that comes with knowing that we are well-insured no matter what happens on our travels.

I hate having to pay for trip insurance and generally feel it's overpriced for the number of actual claims filed vs. number of travelers who take out insurance. Having said that, five years ago we did have occasion to file a claim as my husband had bypass surgery three weeks before we were due to leave. We were certainly grateful to have coverage.

Have purchased and never had to use it. I find travel insurance to be way overpriced for the lack of use by probaby 90% of the population. I am also aware of another insurance program that can't be purchased in California, but can in other states, and other parts of the world, that will send in a plane to evacuate people in case of a terriorist problem.

I like the ease of comparing/contrasting the different plans on the insuremytrip website, but even more, I like being able to read reviews from other travelers, and especially those who had to file a claim. Many of those who had problems with customer service from the various plans were able to get their issues resolved through insuremytrip's interventions.

All the companies charge too high a fee as far as I'm concerned, and that's why insurance companies are just about the wealthiest corporations on the planet. The fees for Allianz are about average for travel insurance.

This is the second time I have purchased Allianz Global Assistance, and the first time making a claim. Allianz processed my claim in exactly the time frame they promised. I'm extremely glad I purchased this product.

Did not submit a claim, but good to know it would be there if I needed it.

I compared a number of plans but this one was very strong in terms of medical coverage and flight delay/cancellation coverage for the price. However, I didn't need to make a claim so I can't comment on how well that process works.

I never had to use the plan, so it's hard to review it. I can say that it was easy to sign up for, so that was a plus.

Since I was lucky enough not to have to file a claim, I can't really judge how the Allianz Classic policy would have been. Just thankful that I didn't need it!

Fortunately, we didn't need to use the plan so we really have no data to report on how good it was.
