Allianz Partners is hence the new insurer for the following insurance products: EXPAT INFINITY (worldwide and unlimited international health insurance), EXPAT FLEXIBLE (worldwide basic insurance for up to 5 years), EXPAT PRIVATE (high-performance and worldwide international health insurance for up to 5 years) and EXPAT GERMANY (health insurance for foreigners in Germany with a maximum validity of 5 years) as well as for the products EXPAT BUSINESS and EXPAT BUSINESS PREMIUM (international health insurance for expats, i.e. employees working abroad).

"Allianz is a globally valued risk carrier and an internationally established partner. For people going abroad on a long-term basis, round-the-clock service from anywhere in the world is an absolute must", says BDAE Managing Director Philipp Belau. He comments further "We are very pleased to strengthen our existing partnership with Allianz".

Deepening a long-standing existing partnership

For the past decade, Allianz has been an extremely reliable partner for BDAE and its policy holders regarding assistance services.

Last year, thanks to its collaboration with Allianz, BDAE already successfully implemented the digital health assistant "Emma" to its range of international health insurance products. This service helps insured persons chat with doctors from anywhere in the world or get medical information on an illness using a symptom checker.

Here is what Michael Baltes, Head of Sales NCEE at Allianz Partners, has to say about the newest partnership: "What distinguishes BDAE is its decades of expertise in covering individuals abroad. As a market leader in travel and mobility assistance and insurance solutions, we share BDAE's focus, and we are therefore pleased to bring our financial power and our knowledge to this successful insurer”. He continues: “For Allianz Partners, this partnership is the logical way to expand the business field of international health insurance".

Long-term international health insurance for customers around the globe

Through BDAE's global health insurance covers, clients all over the world are guaranteed reliable health cover. The products are available for Germans living abroad as well as for all those who wish to move abroad in the medium or long term.

"The field of international mobility has been through quite a lot of changes the last few years. Innovative solutions and reliable partners are a must, now more than ever”, says Kai Großheim, Sales Manager Germany at Allianz Partners. He adds: “Our ambition is to strive to offer the best protection possible with the best partners possible. The cooperation between Allianz and BDAE is a way to achieve this goal".
