You asked, we listened.
imATHLETE and Allianz Global Assistance have partnered to offer your athletes our Registration Protection Program (aka participant insurance).
If an athlete purchases the optional coverage, Allianz Global Assistance covers registration cancellation due to illness, injury, normal pregnancy, military duty, and employer termination.
$7.99 or 6.75% of the cost of registration, whichever is greater.
Once you’ve enabled this option in your event setup, athletes will be able to purchase it on the Cart Summary page once they’ve added registration for your event to their cart. It looks like this:
Allianz Global Assistance will charge athletes separately (they will not be charged by imATHLETE, will not see it listed on their imATHLETE receipt, and will see a separate charge from Allianz Global Marketplace on their credit card).
Allianz Global Assistance will send each athlete who signs up a confirmation email with important policy information.
The setup looks something like this:
No. The Registration Protection Program is available to events and athletes based in the United States only.
The Event Cancellation Refund Program covers the registration fee for athletes who sign up for a covered event if the event is cancelled due to weather or terrorism. Individual athletes cannot opt in or out of the Event Cancellation Refund Program, and their registration fees are not covered if they have to cancel for any other reason. You can read more about the Event Cancellation Refund Program here.
The Registration Protection Program allows athletes to opt in or opt out of additional insurance that will cover their registration fee if they have to cancel due to illness, injury, normal pregnancy, military duty, or employer termination.
imATHLETE has partnered with Allianz Global Assistance to offer the Registration Protection Program to your athletes, however imATHLETE is not an insurance company. All questions specific to the actual insurance coverage should be directed to Allianz Global Assistance.
