What to Know Before you Go on a Trip with Travel Insurance
You’ve dreamt of your trip, planned it, booked it and even bought travel protection from Generali Global Assistance, just in case. Now you’ve come to the right place to learn how you can get the most out of your travel protection plan – which isn’t just travel insurance, but includes helpful travel assistance services you can use before, during and after your trip.
Here’s what to do and know before you go:
1. Travel Insurance Policy Number
Your travel insurance policy number is the key to accessing travel assistance services and filing a claim. We suggest you have it stored in multiple easily accessible places on your trip so we can quickly help you in times of need. You can save your travel insurance confirmation email, print two copies and pack them in different bags, take a photo of your policy number with your phone and/or write the number in a notebook with other emergency information you’re taking on your trip.
You can find your policy number in the confirmation email we sent you when you bought your plan. If you have a Generali travel insurance account you can also find it in the Purchased Plans section. But in the event that you cannot locate your number, our team can still assist via phone.
