A&K Travel Group has partnered with Allianz Partners to offer its guests Allianz travel insurance and travel assistance.
The two companies announced the new partnership on Dec. 3. It means that those booking a trip with an A&K Travel Group brand, including Abercrombie & Kent and Crystal, can now purchase Allianz travel protection through A&K.
“As we continue to roll out our global ‘One A&K’ strategy that connects and synergizes our A&K and Crystal brands across the world, it became apparent that we needed a travel protection partner that shared our dedication to an unparalleled guest experience,” said Cristina Levis, CEO of A&K Travel Group. “Allianz not only provides industry-leading travel protection products and assistance services, but is solidly focused on creating an outstanding customer experience. We’re thrilled to partner with them to offer our guests the coverage, service and peace of mind that leads to a worry-free journey.”
Allianz travel policies include benefits that cover unexpected cancelations, interruptions, travel delays and missed connections, unforeseen medical circumstances, and luggage issues. A&K customers will have access to plans that cover up to 100% of their trip if canceled or interrupted for a reason stated in their policy.
Other benefits to Allianz policies include up to $100,000 coverage for medical emergencies and up to $1,000,000 in medical transportation during a trip.
“We are humbled by the opportunity to partner with A&K Travel Group, which has been providing unforgettable journeys for its guests for more than 60 years,” said Tom Trotta, vice president of sales and partnerships at Allianz Partners USA. “We look forward to joining them in their quest to redefine travel and exceed expectations for their valued guests. A&K guests who select our trip protection plans can enjoy their trip knowing that we’re here to protect them from the costs of covered unexpected cancellations, interruptions and delays, as well as other situations covered by their policy.”
A&K guests with Allianz travel insurance will have access to Allianz’s TravelSmart mobile app, which features an Alert Center that provides location-specific travel alerts and a simple way to access their travel insurance plan, file and manage claims, track flights and get live updates on delays, as well as contact Allianz’s 24-hour travel assistance services.
