AvantStay partners with Allianz Partners

Short-term hospitality platform AvantStay is partnering with Allianz Partners to offer customers trip cancellation and trip interruption coverage.

The coverage from Allianz Partners can include up to 25 different covered reasons that may cause an AvantStay guest to cancel or interrupt their trip, such as an unexpected illness or injury, a mandatory individually-ordered quarantine due to an epidemic-related illness and hurricane warnings or mandatory evacuations at the destination, among other covered reasons.

AvantStay customers who purchase Allianz Travel Insurance will have access to Allianz’s TravelSmart mobile app. The app includes an Alert Center feature which provides users with location-specific travel alerts. The app allows users to access their travel insurance plan, file and manage a claim, track flights, receive live updates for delays and contact 24-hour travel assistance services.

Founded in 2017, the California-based startup raised nearly $700 million in funding.

“We are dedicated to making every stay as memorable and care-free as possible as we continue to lead the charge in reinventing hospitality for group travel and vacation rentals. With the constantly changing travel landscape, our partnership with Allianz Partners is just one more way that we offer our guests peace of mind for their trip, knowing they can be protected from certain unexpected events that could impact their trip.” – Sean Breuner, CEO and founder of AvantStay.

“We’re pleased to offer our travel protection products to the travelers staying at AvantStay’s diverse portfolio of 1,500 vacation rental properties across more than 100 destinations. AvantStay customers who opt in for travel protection can enjoy their trip knowing that we’re here 24/7 to help navigate most travel-related mishaps and make every stay even more enjoyable.” – Tom Trotta, VP of sales at Allianz Partners USA.

“Our guests will be able to book their stays with us worry-free with the added benefit of Allianz Travel Insurance integrated seamlessly onto our booking platform. Just as we use technology to provide guests a customized experience during their stay, we will continue to leverage technology to ensure a curated, thoughtful experience to meet every guest’s needs before and after their stay as well.” – Reuben Doetsch, CTO and co-founder of AvantStay.
