Flight Centre Offers COVID Coverage Through Allianz Global Assistance
Anna Kroupina, Open Jaw
Flight Centre is now covering certain emergency medical and quarantine expenses related to COVID-19 administered by Allianz Global Assistance.
The COVID-19 Coverage and Assistance Plan provides benefits for medical, quarantine, transportation and repatriation expenses. Other medical costs, such as accidents or cancellations, are not covered under this policy. The coverage comes at no additional cost to the customer when they book an eligible Holiday Package (airfare + accommodation).
“Our customers’ comfort and confidence are as important to us as their safety,” said Michelle Suggett, Vice President Retail, Flight Centre Canada.
“We want to make sure they feel supported and that they have a relaxing, stress-free vacation. Anything we can do to help with that is essential. Until now, the question of ‘What happens if I test positive for COVID-19 at destination’ was unanswered: so we applaud Allianz Global Assistance for introducing a product that gives customers the security and peace of mind they need to travel once again.”
