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.

Seemed like a good solid plan for our needs. We never needed to access it although it provided peace of mind.

Fortunately, I didn’t have to use the plan, but it was certainly nice knowing that it was there.

I honestly did not read everything but took all the information with me. I guess, I could have read and, should have read it on the plane.

I thought that I might need to use my insurance plan so I called Allianz during the trip to seek guidance. I was quickly connected to a representative who was very helpful and clearly laid out my coverage, options, and next steps. As it turned out, I did not need to use my insurance, but I appreciated that calm, clear guidance was readily available to me.

My concern with Allianz was the customer service I received when making the claim. The documentation needed for filling out the claim on-line was unclear. I called three different times asking for help in filing out the claim and each time I received vague answers as to what documentation I needed to submit. I had to figure that out on my own.
I never received notice when I needed to supply more documentation and only when I called did I get that information.
It says that you will get a response to your claim in 7 to 10 days but every time I sent in more documentation the "clock" started again and it actually took over a month to be reimbursed.
Mark H. would not recommend this plan to a friend or relative.

Health issue prevented me travelling.
I was charged $200 fee to cancel airline tix. I was not reimbursed this extra cost.
I was refunded airline tix price ~ $1313 after ~30 days and several paperwork submissions.

It is hard to say how good or bad the insurance is because I didn't have to file a claim to know if it was worth it. Trip insurance seems pretty expensive, but you stand to lose a lot more if you don't purchase it.
