Allianz Partners, a provider of B2B2C insurance and assistance services, has been appointed by Norwegian Air Shuttle as its provider of travel insurance products and services across Europe.
Norwegian Air Shuttle’s customers in the Nordics can now purchase travel insurance offered by Allianz Partners together with their flight ticket. The partnership will be rolled out to other European markets in 2022.
Under this partnership, Norwegian’s customers residing in Norway, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands and Poland will be offered travel insurance that covers safety, security and health while they are booking their flight ticket on the airline’s website. The travel insurance is an optional add-on to protect customers in the event of the unexpected.
Allianz Partners‘ travel insurance coverage provides protection for trip interruptions, significant travel delays and missed connections, medical emergencies abroad, baggage issues and more. Insured customers will also be covered for Covid-related illnesses during a trip, including coverage for medical emergencies, mandatory personal quarantine and denial of boarding due to a suspected illness. For added convenience, Allianz Partners offers a 24/7 travel assistance hotline and concierge service for customers.
Yianni Katsiavriades, chief sales officer for Nordics at Allianz Partners said, “We are very proud to be supporting Norwegian and its customers at this important time for the travel industry, as the pandemic subsides and travel rebounds. Travelers are looking for convenience and an easy and simple customer experience as they retake to the skies.
“Travel insurance, including protection for Covid illness, provides an added level of reassurance. Norwegian’s customers will be able to protect themselves and their loved ones during their trip thanks to Allianz Partners’ expertise.”
Revolut recently appointed Allianz as its global travel insurance services provider. The appointment saw Allianz Partners provide its comprehensive travel insurance services to Revolut customers who hold a Premium or Metal Account, initially in 31 markets across The EEA and the UK.
