How do I know that buying my policy online is secure?
Allianz Global Assistance uses a secure payment gateway that makes the credit card transaction directly and securely with the bank. We do not see, record or store these card details in any form, simply get approval or decline from the banking institution. Once authorised, it's instant travel insurance cover - your confirmation email, policy document and other associated documentation is then emailed to you within a matter of minutes for you to print as required. This connection through to the bank uses a 40bit encrypted SSL Web Server Certificate so that any information is encrypted or scrambled, making it impossible to intercept or steal. For more information you could visit www.ssl.com but you can be assured that your transaction is at least as safe as any other normal offline credit card transaction. All of your personal details are protected and encrypted before they are sent for processing.

Yes. These claims will still be considered, please be aware though that when we receive a personal possessions claim, you will still be asked to provide proof of ownership for the lost or stolen items. We understand that you might not be able to produce receipts for each and every item, however, we do expect that you should be able to provide some evidence of ownership. Typically, the insurers may accept photographic evidence in conjunction with warranty cards, manuals, receipts, bank or credit card statements as proof of ownership. In the end, common sense prevails and you should ask yourself, "Do these documents conclusively prove that I owned this item?"
