Complaint Review: Allianz Global Assistance
Allianz Global Assistance Allianz Travel Insurance Company did not pay my travel claim as requested, My travel loses were $3,230.78. I was paid only $800.00 despite having $9,000 in insurance. Internet
*Consumer Comment: I agree, do not purchase
I informed Allianz I was able to save them an extra $3,950.00 by having the tour operator in Rwanda return my in-country trip costs. My reward saving the company nearly $4,000.00, was for Allianz not fully pay me for my travel losses. In essence, "they cheated me"
I also need to state Allianz claims representatives did not return most of my phone calls. Moreover, Allianz personel never acknowledged receipt of my emails, nor letters providing requested claims information. (I had requested an acknowledgement of all my emails/letters). I sent a letter to the CEO of Allianz asking him to intervene on the claim. Although I sent the letter via Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation, the delivery was never confirmed. This was not due to the fault of the Post Office.
Allianz had no intent of fully paying my documented claim. They ignored the terms of their policy and did not pay the amount they owned me. The fact they did not return my phone calls or acknowledge receipt of my emails further attests to their lack of interest in fairly resolving the claim. I find it amazing (or telling) the Allianz CEO would not acknowlege my letter.
My advice is don't purchase Allianz Travel Insurance-unless you want to be Ripped Off. They will gladly take your money, but will not pay what they owe you. Unless I hear otherwise, my next step is Small Claims Court.
