Over the last year and a half I have been traveling internationally often which means a travel insurance policy is incredibly important. I’ve been a customer of Allianz Global Assistance for over a year now. They’ve recently updated their mobile app and it’s impressive! The TravelSmart app of course allows you to view insurance details, claims, flight status, etc But what really interests me is the assistance this app can provide in case of an emergency. Let’s face it-emergencies happen every day…..whether there’s a natural disaster or you caught something on the plane and praying it doesn’t ruin your trip. You never know when you may need to locate a hospital, doctor’s office, police station, and even the locations of U.S. Embassies. The ‘Assistance Around Me’ feature provides all of this!
The updated app also includes a medication dictionary that allows users to store photos of their prescription label and help find international names for over 750 common drugs. Not only that but the First Aid Terms Translation feature provides translations for over 60 illnesses, injuries, etc in 18 common languages.

I think my husband will feel much better about my solo travel now that I have this app. He’s constantly worried about my safety when I’m traveling alone. Having this information and assistance at the touch of a screen is not only extremely convenient but provides a huge bit of relief.
