The introduction of the product follows the announcement of the Allianz Risk Barometer 2021 results which is clearly dominated by the Covid-19 trio of risks; Business interruption, Covid-19 pandemic and cyber incidents.

Allianz Nigeria now offers travelling customers protection against emergency medical expenses associated with Covid-19 diagnosis whilst on a trip. The travel plan also covers accommodation costs related to Covid-19 diagnosis during a trip.
Due to the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic, many countries have imposed mandatory quarantines, border closures, entry bans as well as restrictions for domestic travel as a means to curb the spread of the virus.
The introduction of vaccines has a direct impact on travel especially air travel as demand for travel gradually begins to return to normalcy with airlines beginning to advertise summer travel.
