Direct Travel in Canada has chosen to follow its U.S. counterpart in choosing Allianz Global Assistance (Allianz) as its official travel insurance partner.
Matt Anstett, Director of eComm & Travel Channel at Allianz, commented, "Clients who opt in for travel protection can now enjoy their trips knowing that Allianz is there for them 24/7 to help navigate most travel-related mishaps around the world. Our goal is to provide safety, security and peace of mind to travellers throughout their journey."
In a statement, Direct Travel said the two companies have a long-standing relationship within the U.S. and are actively extending the partnership to all of Canada.
"Our partnership with Allianz has been best-in-class for the last 10 years," said Rene Schneeberger, SVP of Supplier Relations and Revenue Optimization at Direct Travel. "We recently made them a True Partner, our highest level of partnership, which is a reflection of the tremendous support they provided during 2020 and 2021 and we look forward to this expanded relationship."
