Tourists protected in Angola with travel insurance

17 August 2016

The Angolan Institute of Tourism Promotion (Infotur) and national insurance company ENSA, have partnered to launch travel insurance, as part of a memorandum of understanding signed in Luanda on Monday, the Angolan press reported.

The product called “national tourism insurance” protects tourists while travelling in any part of Angola, and will be sold by Infotur through travel agents, according to Angolan state news agency Angop.

The national director of Infotur, Eugénio Clement, said at the signing of the memorandum that the launch of “National Tourism Insurance” will increase the demand for exotic locations and promote adventure sports in the country, ensuring greater security against unforeseen events.

Travel agencies and tourism insurers must, when scheduling tourist activities, take travel insurance into account as it will be mandatory, Clemente said adding that ENSA is preparing the terms of the insurance that will be part of the tourist packages. (macauhub/AO)
