Our history

Allianz Global Assistance is our new brand name, but behind it is a long history anchored in decades of helping people. It all began in 1950 in Switzerland, when people began travelling more. Back then a team of forward thinking business pioneers created ELVIA Travel Insurance. That year marked the beginning of our story in helping people.
