International provider of assistance services Allianz Worldwide Partners (AWP) has signed a new three-year partnership with Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC), to offer Allianz Global Assistance (AGA) travel insurance directly through the Brisbane Airport website.
From early May, the first-of its-kind partnership will provide customers the option to purchase AGA travel insurance to protect their journey, alongside services such as checking flight schedules and pre-booking discounted parking, all from the one online destination.
According to AWP owned data, 39 per cent of its customers purchased travel insurance in the week before departure and 19 per cent purchased the day before, or the day of departure. With this in mind, the new partnership will offer a more convenient solution where travellers can organise their travel needs quickly, in one place, before departure.
Commenting on the new partnership, Brad Smith, Chief Sales Officer, Allianz Worldwide Partners says, “The BAC website caters to travellers transiting through Brisbane Airport, providing an easy one-stop-shop for all their pre-departure needs. Our data shows that travel insurance is often purchased as an afterthought, so we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with BAC and add travel insurance to the platform, ensuring it’s on that pre-departure checklist.
“This is just the start of what we hope will be a long-term partnership to offer a range of insurance and assistance products tailored to suit Brisbane Airport Corporation’s customer base.”
To mark the new partnership, AWP is giving away an Audi A1 to one lucky BAC customer. To be in with a chance of winning, those interested can enter by completing the online registration form, and, for an additional entry, share via their social media channel. As an added bonus, those entrants who also purchase travel insurance policy through the BAC website between 1 May 2018 and 2 July 2018 will gain an additional 20 bonus entries into the draw using the promotion code “AUDI”.
Floor Felten, General Manager Strategic Planning and Development, Brisbane Airport Corporation, said the airport was committed to providing a personalised and seamless experience for passengers.
“We have conducted extensive research in an effort to understand the needs of passengers and it is clear travellers are relying on digital services more and are seeking ways to simplify their whole travel journey through the airport and beyond.
“The convenience of purchasing Allianz Global Assistance travel insurance via the BNE website, alongside online services we already offer like parking, car hire, and currency exchange, gives travellers one less thing to think about,” Ms Felten said.
