Company brief

Specialty insurance provider Allianz Global Assistance has announced a new multi-year partnership agreement with American Queen Steamboat Company (AQSC), under which customers booking river cruises with AQSC will be provided with travel protection and assistance.

AQSC provides American river cruises that ‘recreate a nostalgic sense of wonder, excitement and discovery’, inspired by classics of US literature such as Huckleberry Finn; under the new agreement, its passengers will be offered a suite of products covering various eventualities, including trip cancellation and interruption, travel delay, missed connection, baggage protection, 24/7 assistance, and emergency medical and transportation for any covered reasons such as an illness or injury.

“Early explorers of America’s great rivers weren’t lucky enough to have travel protection or the modern comforts and luxuries aboard American Queen Steamboat’s fleet,” commented Mike Nelson, CEO of Allianz Global Assistance. “Today, we’re pleased to partner with a premier riverboat operator and protect the unforgettable, novel journeys that AQSC offers to its sophisticated travellers.”
