ALLIANZ PARTNERS NOW OFFERS “CANCEL ANYTIME” COVERAGE UPGRADE ON ITS MOST POPULAR TRAVEL INSURANCE PLANS
Richmond, Virginia, January 31, 2023 – Allianz Partners USA, a leading travel and assistance company, is now offering more flexibility to its customers with the addition of an optional Cancel Anytime upgrade to its most popular plans, OneTrip Prime and OneTrip Premier, allowing customers to cancel their trip for almost any unforeseeable reason.* OneTrip Prime and OneTrip Premier are among the travel protection products available on the company’s direct to consumer website, AllianzTravelInsurance.com.**
Many standard travel insurance policies often include trip cancellation benefits, which may reimburse up to 100% of prepaid, non-refundable expenses if the trip is cancelled due to an unexpected and unforeseen covered reason. These standard products typically provide cancellation coverage for a list of “covered reasons,” such as serious illness or injury to the insured, a close family member, or traveling companion; natural disasters that make the insured’s home or destination uninhabitable; and 24-hour delayed arrival at the traveler’s destination due to severe weather among the most utilized covered reasons. Products with the Cancel Anytime upgrade expand cancellation coverage to include most unforeseeable circumstances, including a simple change of plans.
If a traveler cancels their trip for a reason that is not specifically covered under the base plan, products with a Cancel Anytime upgrade can provide reimbursement when standard trip cancellation benefits don’t apply. Allianz’s Cancel Anytime upgrade typically provides for reimbursement up to 80% of lost non-refundable trip costs if a traveler cancels their trip for almost any unforeseeable reason that their selected plan does not already cover, up to a maximum insured amount of $16,000. Customers who cancel their trip for a covered reason may still receive 100% of their lost non-refundable expenses, up to their maximum coverage limit. Customers can cancel as late as the day of departure, as long as they haven’t already left on their trip.
“Simply put, life happens, whether your pet sitter falls through at the last minute, stormy weather is predicted in your sunny destination, or you change your mind about traveling,” says Daniel Durazo, director of external communications at Allianz Partners USA. “Our Cancel Anytime upgrade provides an extra blanket of security for travelers who want to protect their financial investments as much as possible, from the moment they book their trip to the day of their departure.”
To file a claim for reimbursement, customers will need to submit their proof of payment for the trip costs, as well as documentation of any refunds received, and other documentation required.
