Allianz Global Assistance - Travel Tips

Your well-being is our main concern. So you can fully enjoy your holidays, we would like to give you some valuable tips on how to prepare your trip and for during the trip. We are pleased to advise you – so you arrive at your destination healthy and happy.

FlugIf you travel by plane, get to the airport for a short-haul flight at least 90 minutes prior to departure, and two to three hours in advance for a long-haul flight. With an online check-in, you can avoid long waiting periods .


DokumenteTake a copy of important documents, such as your passport or medical prescriptions, with you. In case of loss, it makes it easier to replace them.


MedikamentePack prescription drugs in the branded original packaging.


GepäckAttach baggage tags and use your office address rather than your home address. If possible, close the suitcase with a lock and keep the key in your carry-on baggage.


FotoAn important travel tip for all families: If you travel with children, take an up-to-date picture of each child with you. Keep these where possible in your cellphone.


WertsachenLeave any valuables such as expensive jewelry at home.


BargeldCarry money, credit cards and your passport in a sheath or a purse under your clothes. Be careful and hide larger sums of cash or your passport from prying eyes.


DiebeBeware of pickpockets. They often work in teams and are very skillful. One tries to distract you while another steals your valuables.


GesetzeFamiliarize yourself with the laws and regulations of your holiday country.


SpracheIf you don’t speak the language, learn a few important words and phrases in the language of the country and always keep a dictionary at your fingertips – in case you need help


AchtungDo not go through unknown districts at night, do not take unmarked taxis, and do not accept packets with unknown contents.
