Wuhan promotes online travel insurance

According to local media, the travel agency branch of the Wuhan Tourism Association has issued a notice jointly with the People's Insurance Company of China and the Ping An Insurance Company of China, to the effect that travel agencies in Wuhan city will adopt an online insurance system.
More than 200 travel agencies will install the online insurance system, enabling agencies to issue travel insurance online. Travel agencies, the policy holder and the insurance company can all inquire whether a transaction is successful or not.
Currently tourists can only buy travel accident insurance through travel agencies, travel agency fax the list of those insured to the insurance company and the insurance company would return it after it had been approved approved. In this case, tourists are not sure whether the transaction is successful or not. The new online insurance system is expected to end the issue of fake insurance policies.
