Allianz Global Assistance Launches New Product For Travel Agents

October 27, 2014 Corporate No Comments Email Email

After months of consulting with travel agents to see exactly what the industry is in need of, Allianz Global Assistance is launching an exclusive new product, My Travel Insurance, available to travel agents from 1st November.

My Travel Insurance has similar features and technology platforms to products currently available but with the added benefit of several key features. One feature includes insolvency cover for selected tour operator and wholesalers.  This benefit will help bridge the gap left by the removal of the Travel Compensation Fund in Australia, thereby leaving consumers exposed.

This product will be available to independent travel agents and travel agent groups giving Allianz Global Assistance, one of Australia’s trusted leaders in assistance services, control to target, incentivise and reward top performing agencies, keeping prices competitive in the long-term.

John Myler, CEO of Allianz Global Assistance, comments: “The team has been busy consulting with key industry figures and agents to find out what new features are needed for existing insurance policies. Consumer demands are constantly changing and the industry has recently experienced changes to legislation, so it’s important that we listen to what our partners and consumers want and continue to launch products that meet their needs.”

My Travel Insurance key features:

  • Insolvency cover for Selected Tour operators and wholesalers
  • Unlimited medical cover
  • Lifting of age limit for relatives
  • Snow and cruise automatically covered
  • Pre-purchase up to 24 months
  • Region based on majority of journey
