Travel Emergency Assistance Program
Our Travel Emergency Assistance Program* provides your employees with some peace of mind when travelling. In the event of a travel medical emergency, employees can contact our travel assistance partner, Allianz Global Assistance for 24-hour assistance.
* All plans are subject to specific limits and maximums. Employees should review their Benefit Booklet for full coverage details.
Important reminders for employees planning on travelling outside of Canada:
Check their Benefit Cards prior to travelling for the following information:
- four-digit Allianz Global Assistance ID Number – 9094*,
- Group Policy and Certificate Numbers, and
- Emergency Travel Assistance contact phone numbers.
*Some older Benefit Card versions may not have the four-digit ID number. If the four-digit ID number does not appear on their Benefit Card, employees can write the four-digit number on their cards or go on the Plan Member website and print a new one.
Travel Emergency Assistance applies only to designated countries and may change from time to time. It is the responsibility of the employee to inquire prior to his/her departure whether services apply in the country they are visiting.
