There is No Compulsion in Travel

It is good for the Deputy Tourism Minister to highlight the risks of overseas travel and the high expenses incurred when one's travel plans are affected for various reasons.

However I feel that the authorities should not take the drastic measure of making Malaysians buy travel insurance. Are not travel agencies protected from folding up under the MATTA umbrella?

If so, consumers should be educated to only purchase tours from proper agencies. For travel insurance, the authorities should liaise with travel companies to advise people on the benefits of adequate travel insurance.

Let us treat Malaysians as adults who can decide what travel insurance package to buy.
