Allianz Partners has announced a new partnership with GoEuro, an online booking platform for travel by train, bus and plane in Europe. Through the partnership, Allianz will offer travel insurance in case of cancellation, baggage loss or missed connection to the platform’s customers. Initially, the insurance offering will launch to GoEuro’s Spain, France, Germany and Italy-based customers, with plans to extend to other markets in 2019.
By joining forces in this way, according to Allianz Partners, GoEuro is demonstrating its commitment to both improving the travel booking experience for its customers and continuing to help them after they have booked their trip, maintaining the relationship and providing extra care. It also shows Allianz’s strategic intention to partner with smaller, innovative companies that are disrupting established models and providing consumers with the smarter, more responsive services that they desire.
Allianz Partners and GoEuro plan to expand their partnership, both in terms of geographical coverage across Europe and internationally, and in terms of the range of the products and services on offer.
“GoEuro allows travellers the ease of making all bookings on one single platform, and now with additional peace of mind. Allianz Partners is proud and excited to support GoEuro in its international growth, and to partner with such a dynamic and ambitious digital player,” commented Elodie Hadengue, Global Business Development Manager for Travel at Allianz Partners.
Chris Hall, Regional Director at GoEuro, meanwhile, said: “We know travel booking, and sometimes travel itself, can be stressful, so we’re pleased to be working with a such a globally-renowned and experienced business as Allianz Partners to offer added protection to our customers.”
