Travel Insurance and Assistance Company Honored for Sixth Consecutive Year

Richmond, VA, December 20, 2021 –Allianz Partners USA, a leading travel insurance and assistance company, won Best Insurance Provider during Travel Weekly’s 19th annual Readers’ Choice Awards, held at the Conrad New York on December 16. Travel Weekly, considered the most influential business publication in the travel trade industry, honors the best in travel at its annual Readers’ Choice Awards.

Six years ago, the Best Insurance Provider category was added to the Readers’ Choice Awards and Allianz has won the category every year. The company was preferred over five other finalists by a majority vote of travel professionals and readers of Travel Weekly in the Travel Insurance category. The 2021 awards program highlighted winners ranging from hotels and destinations to airlines and Cruise lines.

Travel Weekly’s readers are invited to choose the suppliers who have led the way in products and service during the past year. An open-ballot phase of voting is conducted where readers are asked to write in the names of companies, they believe are outstanding in any of 79 categories. The leading vote recipients are identified as finalists, and then a second round of voting on the finalists takes place.

“It’s an honor to be awarded the Best Insurance Provider for the sixth year in a row at the Travel Weekly Readers’ Choice Awards,” said Richard Aquino, Vice President and Head of Sales at Allianz Partners USA. “Our goal has and will always be to provide industry-leading innovation and a high level of service to our customers now and for years to come.”
