New travel brand helloworld has selected Allianz Global Assistance (AGA) as its preferred travel insurance provider with the appointment taking effect on 1 July 2016.
Backed by global insurance company Allianz, this announcement reaffirms Allianz Global Assistance’s position as the leading travel insurance and assistance provider in New Zealand. Last year AGA’s team approved more than 20,000 claims from Kiwi travellers who found themselves in strife due to natural disasters, theft, illness and medical emergencies.
AGA’s chief sales officer Will Ashcroft is delighted to start a new journey with helloworld.
“Allianz Global Assistance is proud to offer a local call centre, 24/7 assistance even in the midst of an emergency overseas, and a global network that allows us to provide quick response times to travellers in need.
“To kick off the partnership, each of the helloworld stores will receive a personal induction visit followed by regular, ongoing contact from our dedicated customer care team and sales associates to help them achieve their growth ambitions. At a brand level, we're also providing access to AGA’s wealth of expertise and resources.”
AGA will take over the contract and begin servicing helloworld’s branded stores, brokers and several unbranded stores on 1 July 2016.
