Allianz Partners appointed by NatWest Group as travel insurance provider

Allianz Partners to provide travel insurance for packaged bank account customers across the entire NatWest Group family of brands including NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland and Ulster Bank.

With NatWest Group on board, Allianz Partners becomes the largest travel insurer in the UK¹

Allianz Partners has been appointed by NatWest Group as travel insurance provider to their packaged bank account customers.  The partnership spans NatWest Group’s wider family of banking brands including NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland and Ulster Bank. Customers will have access to Allianz Partner’s travel insurance from February 2024.

The deal is a strategic partnership arising from Allianz Partners’ successful track record partnering with Coutts, RBS International and Isle of Man Bank, all part of NatWest Group. Allianz Partners has worked with Coutts since 2018, providing travel peace of mind to its high net worth clients.

As its packaged bank account travel insurance provider, Allianz Partners will leverage its digital offering to provide NatWest Group’s customers with access to a range of online services through the Allianz Assistance hub. The hub, which will be integrated with the bank’s own online banking app, will enable customers  to manage their insurance, purchase additional cover, request assistance and track claims.

Marcus Latchford, Chief Sales and Distribution Officer, Allianz Partners UK and Ireland, commented: “Our partnership with NatWest Group is thanks to the excellent foundation we have developed over the past five years working with Coutts and other parts of the business. We’re delighted that we are able to extend the partnership to cover the whole Group.”

He continued: “Our digital innovation combined with the ‘human touch’ has enabled us to broaden our share of the UK travel insurance market and this collaboration exemplifies our customer focus and commitment to provide exceptional insurance products and services, embedded within our business partners’ products. We look forward to delivering peace of mind to NatWest Group’s customers.”

Barry Connolly, Managing Director of Every Day Banking NatWest Group, commented: "Travel insurance is one of the benefits that our packaged account customers tell us they value the most, and we're really pleased to be working with a global, long-standing trusted partner to enhance the experience customers have when taking the product and tracking their claims, giving them greater peace of mind."

Allianz Partners’ travel insurance for NatWest Group customers will be available from February 2024.
