RICHMOND, VA,AUGUST 5, 2016 — Allianz Global Assistance USA, a leading provider of travel insurance and assistance, has announced that all of its core retail products are now available in the state of Washington, giving travelers there more choices in protecting their trips from covered cancellations, interruptions and other covered losses.* The addition of Washington means that the company’s core retail products are now available in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The Allianz Travel Insurance core retail plans include:
Classic (base plan)
Classic with optional Required to Work enhancement
Classic with Trip+
Classic with Cancel Anytime
The company’s “Classic” family of plans includes a base plan as well as optional benefit enhancements such as Required to Work, which provides benefits for specific work obligations; and Trip+, which has double the coverage limits compared to the base plan. Benefits include missed connections, covered emergency medical and dental treatment, covered emergency medical transportation, baggage loss/damage and baggage delay. “Classic with Cancel Anytime,” provides 100% cash back when trips are canceled or interrupted due to a covered reason, and 80% cash back for most other unforeseen reasons. On all Classic plans, kids 17 and under can be added for no additional cost when traveling with parents or grandparents.
The Essential Plan offers a cost-effective insurance option for travel agents and their clients who are booking domestic trips and don’t need emergency medical coverage because they are covered by their own health insurance. As with all Allianz Travel Insurance products, the Essential Plan has no non-compensable processing fees, which means licensed agents get credit based on 100% of their customer’s purchase.
“We’re pleased that our most popular travel insurance products are now available to residents of the state of Washington,” said Richard Aquino, Vice President of Sales at Allianz Global Assistance USA. “Now travel agents and their clients have a full suite of travel insurance plans to choose from when they want to protect their trip from cancellations and other circumstances covered by their policy.”
