The Hungarian unit of French insurer Groupama will start offering travel insurance policies online from December 15, Francois Maresquier, head of Groupama Insurance Rt, announced on Wednesday.

Groupama Biztosító expects premiums on its travel insurance policies to generate Ft 30 mln next year, Ft 60 mln in 2007 and Ft 100 mln in 2008. This year, Groupama expects total revenue from premiums of Ft 580 mln, Ft 40 mln more than in 2004.
