Cancelling your travel plans is always disappointing, but can be more so if you find out you can’t re-coup any of the costs you paid for in advance of your trip. If you have coverage with Trip Cancellation benefits and need to cancel due to a covered reason, then, good news: you’ll be able to claim for the covered benefit.
Here are a few tips to filing a Trip Cancellation claim with Allianz Global Assistance.
If you’ve already left on your trip and experience a glitch in your travel plans that delays you or requires you to return home a little early, that's considered a trip interruption. Refer to the Policy of Insurance
for a list of the Covered Reasons that will allow you to file a claim under Trip Interruption benefits.
If you miss a flight or are otherwise delayed, you need to make reasonable efforts to continue your trip. Find the nearest customer service desk to reschedule your flight as quickly as you can. You can also try calling the airline on your mobile phone or going online to reschedule your flight. If you have a travel insurance plan through Allianz Global Assistance, notify our 24/7 emergency assistance team by phone so we can open up a claim for you.
