Allianz Partners

Our passion for assistance is personal. Our founder experienced first-hand the effort required to bring his injured son safely home from overseas, and was motivated to help others in need. Because home isn't just a place, it's a feeling of belonging and security. We're dedicated to making sure safety and comfort is always within your reach.

I was looking around on the website and then I saw this scholarship under the course that I was going to do. So I tried my luck, not that I was really hoping to get it, but I got a call back and they said I got a scholarship. I was like “wow, that's awesome”. It's really helped.
