At Allianz Care Australia, our passion for helping is personal. We’re dedicated to making sure safety and comfort are always within reach. Our founder experienced firsthand the effort required to bring his injured son safely home from overseas, and was motivated to help others in need.

Plans go off course and accidents happen. Certainty is hard to come by, but you’ll never doubt our desire to help. Assistance goes beyond insurance and you are never alone with Allianz Worldwide Partners on your side.

Our positive approach to problem-solving means we’re trusted by a wide range of partners to provide support that reflects how deeply they value their customers. Our team thoughtfully navigates complex situations and expertly assists people in need through specialist support, advice and action. That kind of connectivity relies on innovation, precision and sensitivity.

We have helped travellers, international students with health cover, drivers with car breakdowns, and older people with care support services, to name just a few.
