Today most travelers like to be insured while traveling and this has added a total new dimension to the travel industry with many specialized agencies offering a combined package of travel and insurance services. With international travel at its peak numerous travel agencies have flourished in different parts of the world and the business seems to be growing by the day.
The services offered by the travel agency is not the same as it used to be since a lot of change has taken place in the way people travel. Travel related services are a versatile business as it involves personal interaction and real hard selling. Studies conducted by the travel industry have shown that most people use the Internet for information but end up booking their tickets with a real person who is either a travel agent or a customer service personnel at the supplier.
People only go on the internet when they know what they�re looking for.
A good travel agent can delight the customer by sharing their love of travel, informing them about the possibilities in a new destination and generally awakening in them a desire to take a trip.
Broadly there two major types of insurance offered by the travel insurance agency.
Individual travel insurance
This type of cover is designed for a single trip and it provides insurance cover to the traveler just for one trip
Annual travel insurance or multi-travel insurance
This type of cover is for people undertaking frequent trips wherein they can save substantially on their premium cost
