Heading abroad to tie the knot? Thursday 18 June 2015 PDF Print ALLIANZ GLOBAL ASSISTANCE SAYS ‘I DO’ TO OFFERING COVER FOR OVERSEAS WEDDINGS http://www.allianz-assistance.co.uk/ • Optional wedding cover provides protection for rings, gifts, clothes, photographs and videos • Available for couples as an extension to a single trip travel insurance policy • Starting from £32.30 for a couple travelling to Europe for 6-10 days Allianz Global Assistance UK has extended its single trip travel insurance policy to include optional wedding cover, offering financial protection and peace of mind to couples planning to say ‘I do’ abroad. For many people, their wedding day is one of the most important days of their lives and often one of the most costly; the average wedding in the UK costing £21,000 , which doesn’t even include the rings or the honeymoon. However, an overseas wedding can cost considerably less, averaging £6,500 - with the added bonus of a warmer climate largely guaranteed! It shouldn’t be surprising therefore, that one in five British weddings are now happening abroad . However, whilst savings can be made by heading abroad, it is essential to make sure the big day is still protected from unforeseen circumstances - such as the best man misplacing the rings! The optional cover includes insurance for loss, theft or damage to wedding rings, wedding gifts, wedding clothes (for the bride and bridegroom) and wedding photographs/videos. The cover is available as an extension to a single-trip policy and can be purchased for destinations in Europe or Worldwide (including or excluding the USA and the Caribbean). Prices for Silver level travel insurance cover with wedding extension for a couple (aged 64 or under) starts from £32.30 for 6-10 days in Europe or £36.95 for 11-17 days. Worldwide cover, excluding USA, starts from £74.07 for 11-17 days or £86.46 including the USA and the Caribbean . Claire McKinnon, Head of Market Management at Allianz Global Assistance UK said “The launch of our new optional wedding cover extends our range of travel insurance add-ons geared towards specific types of travel, such as Golf, Backpacker, Ski and Business that we can offer our travel insurance customers. “We are constantly reviewing the needs of our customers who travel abroad in order to identify specialist insurance cover to better protect them and as such, are delighted to now include wedding cover as an extension to our travel insurance portfolio. We recognise just how important it is for couples to make sure their wedding day goes ahead as planned and now we can offer that extra reassurance when they tie the knot abroad”.
