Richmond, VA, August 13, 2019—Allianz Global Assistance and Artist Travel Consultants are pleased to announce a new partnership to offer trip protection to travelers who share a passion for the performing arts. Allianz Global Assistance is a leading consumer specialty insurance and assistance company serving more than 40 million U.S. customers annually.

Now available to U.S. residents reserving travel through Artist Travel Consultants, Allianz Travel Protection plans grant travelers financial protection with 24/7 assistance in the event of qualifying trip interruptions, lost or delay baggage, medical emergencies, and other covered disruptions. In the event of a covered flight delay, customers who buy a plan that includes SmartBenefits and enroll in the service may receive same-day payments.


“Our partnership with Allianz Global Assistance enables us to provide exceptional travel protection and peace of mind in case of unexpected travel disruptions,” said Denise Womble, General Manager, Artist Travel Consultants. “Artist Travel Consultants is committed to offering our customers trip protection that’s as world-class as the music performances they’ll experience at Carnegie Hall.”
