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.
