Good news, travelers: Allianz has refreshed its TravelSmart app once again. Version 4.0 of the app—which has been a favorite here before—is free for both iOS and Android, and with it comes the largest Allianz-powered pocket toolbox yet. Individual policy details and the ability to file a claim with a few quick taps remain key features, so if you’re an Allianz policy holder (like I am) TravelSmart is a must-have. If you’re not, there’s still a lot to like (and anyway, the app is free).
Here are the six main features:
1. Policy details
With the TravelSmart app, your Allianz policy information is at your fingertips. Wherever you travel in the world, you’ll bring an easily accessible summary with you in your pocket.
2. Worldwide Allianz contact numbers
You also have access to Allianz’s contact numbers all across the world should you need them.
3. Claim filing
Run into a problem on your trip? Want to file a claim? As noted above (and detailed here), you can file on the go inside the app, from anywhere in the world. You can even choose to receive your claims money via direct deposit.
4. Real-time flight information
This is very handy. Enter your flight information and the app will return and refresh up-to-date status updates. Delays, gate changes, cancelations, and more—all in your pocket, to be checked rechecked on the way to the airport, stuck in traffic, etc.
5. Emergency help locator and translator
How’s this for peace of mind? In the event of an accident (or whatever), you can use the hospital search to locate the nearest reliable emergency facilities. One less (very important) thing to worry about when you’re faced with a worst-case scenario away for home. In addition (and for more frequent use), the in-app dictionary includes localized names of prescription medication. The translator function does what you’d expect: translate important safety/medical words and phrases into different languages. You can also take and store photos of your existing medications.
6. Emergency contact information
When you need help in an emergency, you need to know who and how to call. The TravelSmart app catalogs emergency numbers (police, ambulance, fire department, etc.) by country.
