Travel agencies in trouble over insurance

KUWAIT: Travel agencies are going through major confusion after a Jordanian insurance company left the travel market and IATA warned nearly 300 agencies and gave them until the end of August to correct their status or they will face closure. Source said IATA asked agencies to pay KD 75,000 as a guarantee to continue issuing tickets, which is difficult for many agency owners. The sources said the exit of the Jordanian insurance company from the Kuwaiti market put the agencies in a predicament over the lack of an alternative, except for a French company that has strict conditions that many agencies cannot meet. — Al-Jarida
