Do you like to travel? Even once in a while go on vacation for a week? Are you booking vacations for the holidays, spring break, or even next summer. It is so expensive to travel and get it just the way you want it. Even just to book it you have to put 1/2 or more down.
My Mom and Dad decided to go to Hawaii for their 25th anniversary. Everything was paid and they were leaving in just over 1 week. That night my Dad had a massive heart attack, his heart actually exploded is what the doctors said. I was only 19 but I remember Mom really worrying about the bills. It was not until years later that I ask her were you able to get your money back from your planned trip? No, can you believe that! Terrible she never received 1 dime back because she could not travel.
This is where Allianz Travel Insurance would have been something they should have bought. The price is very small compared to how much you spend on a vacation. With Allianz Travel Insurance that will refund a customer’s pre-paid travel deposits if they have to cancel a vacation for any reason covered by their policy. Allianz Global Assistance is a leading travel insurance company that provides travelers with financial protection and 24/7 travel assistance.
Allianz Global Assistance also has a team set up that can help travelers with medical emergencies, travel issues, and more. You can learn more and find the right policy for you at Allianz Travel Insurance. I really like that they are available 24/7/365. You will not be stranded and not know what to do while waiting for a phone call, you will talk to someone! They have 60 years of experience, so they know what the best way is to help you.
I have also heard stories, or should I say nightmares, of people traveling overseas and must pay a hospital bill before they will release the person. I have heard of people passing away while traveling, as if this is not hard enough you have to find a way to get your loved one’s remains back to the US.
Allianz Global Assistance each year handles 23 million cases, helps 250 million people, and take 52 million calls – that is 3 calls every 2 seconds.
For the past 6 years Allianz Travel Insurance has conducted a Vacation Confidence Index Survey. The results of the most recent survey found that more Americans are planning on traveling this year but will spend less on trips for 2015. More people will use what they refer to as “sharing Economy” which is services like Airbnb, Home Away, Uber, Lyft, GetAround and Feastly.
This same survey shows that 135 million Americans have not taken a vacation in the last 12 months. That is 56% of Americans. 51% of Americans plan on taking a vacation in 2015.
