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.

Allianz Global Assistance Classic
Thankfully, had no reason to make use of the insurance coverage; but it provided peace of mind at what I felt was a good price.

The plan covered surgery in Mexico completely. I was greatly pleased with the efficiency with which the costs were covered and the follow-up phone calls from Allianz.

Although the plan met my needs, in the interum my credit card supplier now offers similar coverage. So I likely won't be using the plan unless the cost of the trip greatly exceeds the amount offered by the credit card.

With the exception of poor communication with Allianz telephone agents, I am satisfied. I had to call Allianz to ask why all of my claims hadn't reimbursed. After very poor, uninformed agent response, I finally reached someone who was able to help me. I was told that my forms were illegible. In fact they had received the originals and the problem was due to Allianz's internal scans. Why no one let me know of this problem remains a mystery. The last agent was able to obtain legible scans and has informed me that I will be reimbursed. I've not yet received those reimbursements, but expect to receive them today or tomorrow.

Allianz Global Assistance Classic
I purchased this plan before a trip to San Jose del Cabo, and it turned out to be a great investment. During the trip my wife had to be hospitalized for a short time while several diagnostic tests were run. The hospital bill came to over 3,000 USD. After first submitting the claim to her insurer back in the states, we had to wait until they processed the claim before submitting it to Allianz. It took them so long that our 90 day time limit had almost expired before I was able to send in the claim. Fortunately, the process for filing the claim was very easy and quick. Allianz did come back and ask for some additional information, which I was able to furnish, and after that it took about two weeks for them to notify us that the claim had been approved and a check was in the mail. I highly recommend this plan and this company.

Our travel company changed the dates and costs of the trip. Allianz Global was very cooperative with the changes. Fortunately we had no claims.

On this trip, I had peace of mind that I had broad coverages. If I ever missed the connecting flights, nor had suitcases damaged, or had to use medical facilities, I would have coverages.

I am glad we needed none of the above, even though we visited extremely hilly regions and climbed tall structures and cruised on Yangtze river. We did not lose anything either. I am glad we didn't have to file any claim.

For a number of years we took the insurance mainly for trip cancellation because we had aging parents. We now are of Social security age and take it not only for cancellation in case we become ill or injured before the trip but also for illness coverage during the tripsince our health insurance does not cover us out of the United States.
