Increased tourism due to factors such as rise in disposable income, easy online travel bookings, package vacations, and robust holiday coverage drive the growth of the global travel insurance market. On the other hand, lack of awareness regarding travel insurance among people impede the growth to some extent. However, technological advancements such as geo-location, application program interface (API), artificial intelligence (AI), data mining, and global positioning system (GPS), among others have paved the way for lucrative opportunities in the industry.

Covid-19 scenario - The travel & tourism industry got highly affected due to the strict lockdown measures imposed by government bodies across the world. This, in turn, impacted the global travel insurance market negatively, especially during the initial period. However, the market has now just got back on track.

The single-trip travel insurance segment to dominate by 2031-

By insurance cover, the single-trip travel insurance segment held the major share in 2021, garnering around three-fifths of the global travel insurance market. This is owing to the fact that customized coverages with extra premium cost are offered when the traveler is planning to take part in winter sports, climbing, bungee jumping, and diving while abroad. These are best-suited policies for family travelers who prefer to go on a vacation once or twice a year. The long-stay travel insurance segment, at the same time, would showcase the fastest CAGR of 28.7% throughout the forecast period. This is because long-stay travel insurance provides lucrative coverages compared to that of conventional travel insurance policies, covering things such as medical costs, missing luggage, and having to postpone or cancel a trip.

The insurance intermediaries segment to maintain the lion's share-

By distribution channel, insurance intermediaries segment contributed to the highest share in 2021, generating nearly one-third of the global travel insurance market. This is due to the fact that insurance intermediaries are upgrading their businesses by integrating software such as GDS, a global distribution system that facilitates transactions between service providers in the travel industry such as airlines, hotels, car rental companies, and travel agencies. The insurance aggregators segment, however, would cite the fastest CAGR of 27.9% from 2022 to 2031. This is attributed to the fact that insurance aggregators collect data on various policies of insurance companies and upload it on a single online portal. Individuals interested in taking an insurance policy can visit this portal and compare products, prices, and terms of conditions offered by different insurance companies and make the best choice.

The family travelers segment to retain its dominance-

By end-user, the family travelers segment generated the major share in 2021, holding more than one-fourth of the global travel insurance market, owing to increasing intergenerational travel trends among families. The business travelers segment, simultaneously, would portray the fastest CAGR of 28.1% by 2031, due to rapid increase in national and international traveling for businesses to purchase raw materials from suppliers.
