Allianz Partners has tied up with Singapore Airlines as its global provider of insurance products and services.
As part of the deal, Allianz Partners' simplicity travel insurance offering is being rolled out to Singapore Airlines customers in 28 high-growth travel markets. It was first made available in Singapore, Switzerland and Germany in December, with more key Asia Pacific and global markets to be added in 2022.
The travel cover line provides protection for trip cancellations and interruptions, significant travel delays and missed connections, medical emergencies abroad and baggage issues. Insured customers will also be covered for COVID-related illnesses either before or during a trip, including coverage for medical emergencies, mandatory personal quarantine and denial of boarding due to a suspected illness. Allianz Partners also has a 24/7 travel assistance hotline and concierge service for customers.
“We are delighted to announce the partnership with Singapore Airlines which allows us to strengthen our position in the fast-growing Asia Pacific market,” said Ben Elliott-Yates, regional chief sales officer, Asia-Pacific at Allianz Partners. “It's a complementary partnership which allows both partners to positively influence the type of travel insurance and protection products available globally due to the number of passengers that travel on Singapore Airlines each year. By focusing on the customer benefits of our simplicity products we are able to ensure that each individual passenger travels with the most relevant and effective coverage, purchased at the time of booking.”
“We believe in creating smooth and seamless journeys for our customers,” said Lee Lik Hsin, executive vice president for commercial, Singapore Airlines. “SIA's partnership with Allianz Partners will give our customers greater peace of mind with comprehensive trip insurance that includes Covid-19 coverage, as well as added value with exclusive benefits for KrisFlyer members. We will continue to work with Allianz Partners to enhance the insurance offering, keeping it relevant in the current travel climate.”
