Global travel insurance market is segmented on the basis of insurance cover, distribution channel, users, type, application and geography. The rise of low-cost airlines is the main growth driver of the travel insurance market. With the emergence of low-cost airlines, there has been an upsurge in the number of airport passengers. This, in turn, has led to a rise in the overall travel insurance premium that has hiked profit margins of the top travel insurance vendors.
The existing trend of non-conventional expenses being insured is expected to boost the market growth in the years to come. For example, when a tourist opts for vacation rentals, the person gets accommodation in furnished houses, apartments or resort condominium complex. The cost incurred is inclusive of the deposits, expenses, and cancellation fee. Therefore, if a tourist (including a family member) falls ill during vacation, he or she needs to show valid proof of the vacation rental and out-of-the-pocket expenses for getting claim reimbursements. Such expenses are expected to woo a large number of customers who would opt for diverse travel insurance coverage policies.Based on insurance cover, the travel insurance market is segmented into single trip travel insurance, annual multi-trip travel insurance, and long stay travel insurance and so on.
