How to Use Travel Concierge Services—Even Before Your Trip
Has the concierge at a hotel ever helped you find your way around a city you’re visiting, giving great suggestions and helping you make reservations? Wouldn’t it be great to have that kind of service in your back pocket, ready to use, wherever you are during your trip, or even before it begins? All travel protection plans from Generali Global Assistance include Travel Concierge Services that can do that very thing.
Read on to learn more about the more than dozen different ways we can assist you. You can use pre-trip assistance to help schedule golf tee times, make restaurant, airline, and rental car reservations, or reserve tickets for entertainment and other special events. During your trip, if you prefer to speak to a human, rather than poke at a travel app, we’ve got you covered. With one phone call, we can help you find local entertainment and get tickets, find the best local restaurants, make reservations and more.
Travel Concierge Services is just one of the services included with our plans, in addition to 24-Hour Emergency Assistance Services, Telemedicine and Identity Theft Resolution. But, Concierge Services is the only one that you can use before your trip begins.
