Travel Insurance Market Trends




  • Growing tourism industry and government initiatives mandating travel insurance are driving the market growth




Market CAGR for Travel Insurance is being driven by the growing tourism industry and government initiatives mandating travel insurance. The travel industry has been growing due to the rise of budget and luxury housing standards in the past several years. The number of people moving for leisure is growing repeatedly, so there is no wonder the market of travel insurance is booming. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 1.5 billion people travel annually, a number anticipated to grow in the following years, says (WHO). Travel insurance helps travelers to prepare for unplanned events and bad experiences that may affect their travels. International tourism entities reached the USD1 trillion mark again in 2022 and grew 50% more than the growth in 2021, mainly due to the crucial increase in international visits. International visitors' tourism spending fell to 64% of the pre-pandemic levels (36% lower than the 2019 value in real terms). While regionally, Europe has so far been the best performer with almost USD 550 billion (EUR 520 billion), which accounts for 87% of pre-pandemic numbers, it is also important to be mindful of the uneven levels of recovery across the continent. Africa had the highest recovery in receipts, 75%, followed by the Middle East (70%), and the Americas (68%). Travel spending on Asian sites doubled to 28% as a result of the border closure for a long time.


Travel insurance assumes importance to a traveler while visiting a foreign destination where the insured companies handle medical emergencies, flight delays, loss or damage of baggage, and many other challenges. Travelers from different countries like the U.S., the UAE, New Zealand, and the Schengen area nations are now required to get travel insurance before they set off for those countries. This is leading to a surge in demand for travel insurance services among travelers. These counties, by the same token, asked for the attachment of travel insurance documents during their visa applications. Additionally, government and regulatory authorities enforced a range of travel rules applicable to travelers' visas and other requirements in many countries regarding the pandemic situation post-COVID-19. For instance, in 2021, the government of Singapore imposed a regulation to have travel insurance for travelers covering COVID-19-related medical care and hospitalization. As a result, it is anticipated that throughout the projection period, demand for the Travel Insurance Market will increase due to the Growing tourism industry and government initiatives mandating travel insurance. Thus, driving the Travel Insurance Market revenue.


Travel Insurance Market Segment Insights




  • Travel Insurance Market Insurance Cover Insights




The Travel Insurance Market segmentation, based on Insurance Cover, includes Single-Trip Travel Insurance, Annual Multi-Trip Travel Insurance, and Long-Stay Travel Insurance. The Single-Trip Travel Insurance segment dominated the market, accounting for 58% of market revenue. Contrary to regular and extensive travel, single trips are recorded in big numbers all over the world when people prepare and store their complete travel plans only a few times a year. The majority of people who don't fulfill the criteria of frequent travelers opt for a single-trip insurance policy. The “one trip” is the preferred choice for people who travel once or twice a year (that means they save money on the multi-trip one); the loss days in one case may be up to the renewal of it. The insured number of individuals in the middle-class population participating in travels across the globe at the same time, in pursuit of a higher disposable income, stands out as one of the major factors that add to the demand for travel insurance covering single trips.
