Protect Yourself: During the holidays, you must be prepared in case your travel plans get interrupted by unpredictable winter storms. So, it’s a good idea to protect your holiday trips with an Allianz Travel Insurance policy. Travel protection can reimburse your pre-paid, non-refundable travel expenses if you have to cancel a trip because of severe weather, illness or injury in your family. And it can reimburse you for additional, reasonable expenses related to travel and baggage delays. If your holiday travels take you out of the country, it’s important to know that most U.S. health insurance plans may not cover a medical emergency abroad. By checking the box on travel insurance, the right medical benefits can help you avoid paying large hospital bills. For more information visit www.Allianz.com
