Specialty insurer Allianz Global Assistance has partnered with riverboat fleet operator American Queen Steamboat Company (AQSC) to provide travel protection to customers booking river cruises with AQSC.
Customers who purchase Allianz travel insurance for an AQSC cruise receive benefits including trip cancellation and interruption, travel delay, missed connection and baggage protection, the company said. They also receive emergency medical and transportation for any covered event.
“Early explorers of America’s great rivers weren’t lucky enough to have travel protection or the modern comforts and luxuries aboard American Queen Steamboat’s fleet,” said Mike Nelson, CEO of Allianz Global Assistance. “Today, we’re pleased to partner with a premier riverboat operator and protect the unforgettable, novel journeys that AQSC offers to its sophisticated travelers.”
Ted Sykes, president and COO of AQSC commented: “American Queen Steamboat Company is thrilled to partner with Allianz Global Assistance to offer our guests travel protection. For many, traveling on our authentic paddlewheelers is the trip of a lifetime, and this insurance will help our guests rest assured that they will have assistance should any travel headaches interrupt their plans.”
