Adding to its cache of travel industry trophies, Allianz Global Assistance USA has won five Magellan Awards from Travel Weekly, the travel industry's most influential national trade publication.
The company won two gold and three silver trophies for its accomplishments in travel insurance products, technology and marketing. The company received a gold trophy for its innovative new TravelSmart mobile app, which was launched earlier this year and connects travelers to 2,000 approved hospitals in 129 countries. The company also received recognition for its travel insurance products, for enhancements to its simple-to-file claims process and for videos that explain the benefits of travel insurance.
The Travel Weekly Magellan Awards honor the best in travel and salute outstanding travel professionals in a broad range of industry segments, including hotels and resorts, travel destinations, cruise lines, online travel services, airlines and airports, travel agents and agencies, tour operators, and car rental companies.
"We're very proud to be the most honored travel insurance company in this year's Magellan Awards," said Alan Josephs, chief marketing officer of Allianz Global Assistance USA. "Winning five Magellan Awards speaks volumes to the dedication of our associates and the continued support of our partners and customers."
The Magellan Awards are judged and overseen by a one-of-a-kind panel of top travel professionals representing the best names and most accomplished leaders from the industry. In determining winners, entries do not compete with one another, instead they are judged against a standard of excellence based on the long experience of Travel Weekly. To uphold this high standard of excellence, a category may have multiple winners, or may have no winners at all.
"This year's Magellan Award winners have once again impressed the judges with their creativity and sense of style," said Arnie Weissmann, editor-in-chief of Travel Weekly. He added, "The recipients of the Magellans truly represent the best of the industry, and their accomplishments are inspiring."
