Travelling to USA
Travelling to the USA is really exciting - it’s a huge country with an enormous array of attractions, natural landscapes, cultures, climates and fascinating people. From the skyscrapers of New York City to the wilderness of Utah, the beaches of California to the many theme parks of Florida, there is so much to see and do!
When you’re planning your trip to the USA, think of how you want to get around. Will it be the fun and freedom of a road trip or will you be a jetsetter, going from one thrilling city to another? When considering travel insurance, keep your transportation methods and the weather in mind. You don’t want to be out of pocket for flights delayed by snowstorms or a costly excess on a rental vehicle.
Allianz Travel Insurance has Basic, Comprehensive and Multi-Trip travel insurance policies for your next holiday. Our Comprehensive Travel Insurance offers optional cover for loss of personal effects and luggage1, trip cancellation1, and more at an additional cost.

Health and safety when travelling in the USA
Keeping safe in the USA
Stay vigilant for pick-pocketing and other forms of theft. Never leave your belongings unattended. Check Smartraveller for current travel alerts affecting USA before you purchase a policy, before you leave Australia, and during your travels.
Keeping healthy in the USA
America is known for its high health care costs and if you get sick or injured, it can be extremely expensive to visit a doctor, dentist or hospital. An injury such as a broken bone could cost a lot of money to treat. This is where travel insurance for the USA might come in handy.
Road-tripping in the USA
Renting a car can be a great way to travel around the USA, but can leave you with large out of pocket expenses if something goes wrong.
If you’re involved in an accident while you’re driving, or your rental car is damaged or stolen, Allianz Comprehensive Travel Insurance may help reduce your out of pocket expenses. It is designed to cover the excess or the property damage you’re liable for (whichever is less) up to your benefit limit2. Rental Vehicle Excess Cover is included in all Allianz Comprehensive and Multi-Trip Travel Insurance policies.
Optional snow, cruise and adventure packs
The possibilities are endless in America, you can ski, surf, hike, scuba dive, skateboard, cruise, kayak, camp, stay on a ranch, climb a mountain or gaze across a canyon.
If you’re an adventurer, a keen skier or you live for cruising, consider purchasing an optional Snow Pack, Cruise Pack or Adventure Pack when purchasing an Allianz Comprehensive Travel Insurance policy.
