Defying the odds: Allianz Partners continues to provide international medical assistance one year into COVID-19
The coronavirus pandemic is far from over. As a provider of emergency medical assistance, Allianz Partners has had to rethink its entire medical operations to overcome the challenges of COVID-19 and continue to support customers in exceptional circumstances. These challenges have included the cancellation of commercial flights, an increase in regulations and travel restrictions, strained local health services, and the requirement for medical teams to quarantine.
Data protection and cybersecurity: Allianz Partners achieves TISAX level 3 accreditation
Allianz Partners, a leading company in B2B2C insurance and assistance and a world leader in roadside assistance, reaches a new milestone in information security and secure data processing. The Group’s headquarters in Saint-Ouen (Paris) have obtained the prestigious TISAX (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange) certification, a standard defined by the VDA, the German automotive industry association, which guarantees the highest possible level of data protection and know-how against the increasing frequency of cyberattacks.

Living with COVID-19: Allianz Partners reinforces new uses and modes of mobility
The COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath will very likely have long-term effects on the automotive and mobility industry. In Allianz Partners’ recent report, remote working is predicted to impact mobility needs and mobility usage patterns, leading to more sharing and flexible mobility as well as to short-term car rental rather than full car ownership. Some car manufacturers expect subscription services to account for 10% of all car sales in the US and Europe, and as much as 50% of some OEM’s revenues in 2025. During lockdown, road travel and public transport usage declined steeply in the short term, and at the same time many people turned to micromobility as an alternative, perceived as less risky than public transport.
Allianz Partners aims at going beyond being a simple insurance and service provider: the group is continuously developing and implementing holistic mobility solutions to meet the needs of its business partners and to provide peace of mind to end customers. Now more than ever, Allianz Partners is working closely with OEM partners, new mobility providers and the whole mobility ecosystem to provide targeted and flexible offerings to help them navigate the new COVID environment. We especially support the accelerated push for flexible ownership solutions, micromobility offers and digital distribution.
