Travel Insurance Repatriation Benefit

Submitted by: Allianz Global Assistance

Recent natural disasters have bought into the focus the plight of travelers that are caught in the disaster zone. This is where a travel insurance policy with a repatriation benefit helps provide the assistance at this critical time.

(OPENPRESS) With over sixty years of heritage as a global insurance provider, Allianz Global Assistance has been at the forefront of serving customer's needs, making us a number one service provider for travel insurance for customers all around the world. Customers have come to rely on us for travel insurance, due to our comprehensive coverage and affordable rates.

Most importantly, we offer our customers a global network of over 180 correspondents and over 400,000 service providers, covering five continents and 34 countries. This network helps to ensure that where our customers travel to for their holiday or for business, there is someone nearby who knows the area and the local culture, who can get the travel assistance they need as quickly as possible.

This type of coverage is an all-important benefit particularly when, as sometimes happens around the world, there are natural disasters. Unlike other insurance companies which deny coverage in the event of a natural disaster or so-called "act of God," our customers may begin their journeys with the peace of mind knowing that if something like that happens, they will still receive the same level of attention and coverage, regardless of the type of disaster they encounter.

While we hope that every journey is carried out without a glitch, it is estimated that around one in every thousand journeys involves some need for medical help. One in every four thousand will be serious enough to require a medical evacuation from the country of travel. For the common traveler, the odds of that happening are remote, but sometimes when disaster hits, there is no immediate escape.

This reality hit close to home for many Singaporeans who, in recent years, have been met with disasters, such as the recent earthquake in New Zealand and the Tsunami in Japan. In each of these situations, there were Singaporeans who needed assistance, and Allianz was there to help.

Allianz Global Assistance travel insurance includes medical evacuation coverage for travelers during natural disasters because that is a time when customers may need our help the most, at a time when they are least able to control the events around them. Our package includes 24 hour medical assistance and medical evacuation, repatriation of remains to Singapore or the home country, compassionate or hospital visit by a relative, and accompanying an unsupervised child home ("Child Guard"), and many other benefits. For Silver and Gold package customers, medical evacuation and repatriation coverage is offered without limitation on cost of travel. We offer three levels of coverage for our Single Trip Travel Insurance package, and two levels for the Annual Travel Insurance package. All of these include coverage of medical evacuation costs.

Allianz Global Assistance is the world's largest assistance and travel insurance group. We provide coverage to over 200 million customers around the world. Through a workforce of over twelve thousand employees, we manage one intervention every two seconds, with a customer service team that is on call 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
