There was nothing more distressing to me than trying to help my daughter in pain and having to first search online to see which hospital and urgent care was in our network. As it as late at night the Urgent Care was closed, and we had to take her to the more expensive emergency room.
Never again. Never. For the small initial investment, travel insurance is the SMART way to travel.
So, while I sit here kicking myself (and giving Kalyra a severe hoverboard ban), I wish to share with you the smart benefits to Allianz Travel Insurance.
It is important to note we are ambassadors for Allianz Travel and have been for several years. We’ve done the vetting and the groundwork to establish the trust required to share with you. (including going through the claims process ourselves when our cruise trip was interrupted by Hurricane Irma)
Not only do they offer you security in your travel investment and peace of mind should any unfortunate and unforeseen circumstances arise, they have a range of smart benefits that will also enhance your trip and make it a little easier for you.
We want to share those specifics for you, including a unique feature that allows you to receive immediate payment should your flights be delayed – like while-you’re-waiting-for-your-next-flight-immediate. It’s cool.

ALLIANZ TRAVEL SMARTBENEFITS SM
Allianz Global Assistance has a new suite of savvy SmartBenefits SM that automate some of the traditional claims process and gets your payments to you at lighting fast speed – when you need it most, during a travel setback.
1. Proactive Claim Payments for Covered Flight Delays
Last year, it took me 12 hours to fly from Raleigh, NC to New York State thanks to several hours of flight delays.
Not only did it mean I arrived at my conference late, I also had to extra unforeseen costs to cover food while I was waiting around at the airport. Airport food is not cheap, and of course, a glass of wine was needed to calm my nerves – I hate being late!
How handy would it be to have $100 deposited immediately into your bank account when your flight is delayed?
Then you have access to money to help you cover the cost of food, clothes and any other unexpected costs due to the delay.
This is an Allianz Travel SmartBenefits SM.
You don’t need to file a claim, Allianz Travel detects the delay and notifies the customer they are eligible.
And our beautiful readers, therefore I write this post for you. I had no idea about this benefit (because I can be very sloppy with things like this and get caught up with travel delay trauma) and could have received this $100 claim payment for my delay!!!!
How crazy am I? I could have bought another glass of wine.
I make these mistakes so I can teach you what not to do and do.
Make it super easy for yourself by getting the right policy and using the Allianz App to make this effortless and automatic for you. (Keep reading for more on that.)
