Allianz Global Assistance Australia and STA Travel have announced a new deal that will allow Allianz to underwrite travel insurance products sold through STA.
STA Travel Australia general manager David Green said the five year deal would meet demand for assurances related to travel insurance.
“Despite all manner of planning, any travel comes with inherent risk,” Mr Green said.
“Allianz Global Assistance has a proven track record in helping travellers abroad in need of medical or emergency assistance and will help our business continue to get people out exploring the world safely.”Last year, Allianz Global Assistance Australia provided assistance for up to 18,000 travellers who required emergency medical assistance overseas.
