In 1950 in Switzerland, when people started traveling more, a team of pioneers created ELVIA Travel Insurance. This year marked the beginning of our history to help people. Twenty-four years later, in 1974, SACNAS-Mondial Assistance, a key company in the development of this history, was founded in France.
During the 80s and 90s, still as two separate entities, Elvia and Mondial Assistance, they adapted to the changes of their commercial clients. With the passing time, they continued to grow geographically, developing first in Europe and, little by little, in the rest of the world. In 1995 the German group Allianz joins Elvia and in 2000 Elvia Travel Insurance and SACNAS-Mondial Assistance merge. With nearly 80 years of experience, it became the world leader in travel assistance, travel insurance and customer services.
On January 1, 2007, these French companies merged to form Mondial Assistance, forming a single entity and brand. This way, we consolidate our position in France, without forgetting the main objective of growing internationally.
Today, we operate under a single brand and speak with one voice. We are present in 44 countries and have operations in 78.
On November 11, 2011 we changed our brand, and the company adopts its new trade name Allianz Global Assistance.
