Allianz Partners launches allyz in the US

Earlier this year, Allianz Partners announced the launch of the allyz mobile app, a “digital companion for travel and much more.”

Initially, travelers in Germany, France and the Netherlands were able to access the app, but now the company is making it available to US users as well.

The app provides a variety of services for any traveler with additional functions available to Allianz Global Assistance customers. All travelers can take advantage of functions such as a geolocation-based hospital finder to locate the closest appropriate medical facility, a medical term translator, a medication dictionary, local emergency phone numbers, safety and security alerts to stay up to date on events that may impact a trip, and a trip organizer that provides simplified views of travel itineraries including airline flight tracking capabilities. Allianz Global Assistance policyholders also can use the app to manage their insurance plan and file a claim, access insurance and assistance FAQs as well as contact both Allianz Global Assistance 24/7 customer service and travel assistance with a single touch.

The company says that more capabilities are expected later this year.

“The Allyz TravelSmart app has been designed to take much of the worry out of the travel experience and help our customers enjoy their travel experiences. Designed to be an essential companion to our industry-leading travel and event ticket protection products, the app offers a robust suite of digital solutions so travelers can have an even more enjoyable trip. The app serves as a hub that puts insurance benefits, assistance services, safety features and more at customers’ fingertips whenever and wherever they need them.” – Begench Atayev, Head of Product Management and Innovation at Allianz Partners USA.
