Sharing his thoughts on the growing demand for non-COVID insurance plans, Sumit Agarwal, Senior Vice President, TripMoney, shared “The global health crisis has brought along a paradigm shift in the way people book travel, today. Travellers now actively seek covers that promise to secure their trip, their lives and of their loved ones, and other tangible assets, right at the time of making the booking. So, a travel insurance cover that often came as an after-thought to many a few years back –has now become an integral part of booking for both, domestic and international travellers. At TripMoney, our aim is to secure travellers against any sort of travel-related uncertainties while ensuring that these covers offer comprehensive yet affordable benefits for every type of traveller.”
