From January to September 2014, 190,796 Mauritians travelled abroad, up 2.3% compared to the corresponding period in 2013. Business trips, holidays or studies are the main reasons for Mauritians to travel overseas, and it is for these trips that they are seeking travel insurance, especially to guard against any inconvenience which could arise.
“Any journey entails risks and it is important to be insured,” concludes Louis Rivalland.
