Hi, I’m Lee Abbamonte. I spend most of my time traveling the world, and when you love exploring as much as I do, you want to spend less time worrying about travel logistics and more time just enjoying your adventure. One of my favorite tools for simplifying my trips is the Allianz TravelSmart App. It’s a digital extension of my Allianz Travel Insurance plan, and it’s just been updated with even more handy features to help make travel simpler, safer, and yep, smarter. Here’s how you can use TravelSmart to enhance your adventures:
You can use the app without purchasing an Allianz Travel Insurance plan, but if you do have a plan, you can log into the app with the email address you used when you purchased your plan. If you don’t already have an account, no worries. You can also create one using the app.
Once you’re logged in, you can access your travel protection plan anytime, anywhere, right from the home screen. Just tap your plan to see a quick summary of your benefits without having to carry around a physical plan or documents. If you need to file a travel insurance claim, it’s easy to start one directly from your plan overview. And filing from the app means you can get your claim going fast, especially if you’re on the go. You can easily check the status of your claim, right on your home screen.
Speaking of the home screen, TravelSmart helps you stay organized with helpful tools all in one place along with quick access to your policies and claims. You can also add your upcoming flights to the home screen. Before you head to the airport, click on a flight to see real-time updates about your flight status and gate information prior to departure. Once you reach your destination, the app has some great features to help you stay prepared for just about anything on your travels.
One of the app’s most helpful tools is the Alerts feature, which gives you timely advisories about events that could potentially impact your trip. To get Alerts, you’ll need an eligible insurance plan and you want to make sure you allow TravelSmart to access your geolocation.
If you’re traveling in a country where you don’t speak the language, TravelSmart’s medical translator is definitely a handy tool to have in your pocket. It has two helpful elements: First aid terms will help you translate common ailments into different languages and the medication dictionary can help you find the universal name for many common medications if you need to refill a prescription while you’re traveling.
With the Around Me feature, you can find an embassy, pharmacy, or police station and get the location of the nearest appropriate healthcare facility. This feature is powered by the app’s geolocation capability, so make sure you enable your location services to take full advantage of it.
The feature that really helps me breathe easier is the orange contact button located at the bottom of the screen. With just a click, I can get local emergency numbers for my current location. I can also quickly connect with the 24-Hour Assistance that comes with my travel insurance plan. Helpful experts are available 24/7 if I need medical assistance, travel assistance, or customer service. And I can connect with them from virtually anywhere in the world.
