Global Travel Insurance Market Trends:
The global travel insurance market is primarily driven by a significant rise in corporate trips. Travel insurance is distributed via insurance aggregators, banks, and insurance brokers, who provide different plans that cover costs and losses depending on the coverage policy of the insured. The rapid growth of the travel and tourism industry, on account of the increasing disposable incomes of consumers and the ease of booking holiday packages online, is also positively impacting the market growth. They are easily accessible via online sites, including direct airline websites and online travel agencies. Moreover, several technological developments, such as the integration application program interface (API), artificial intelligence (AI), and data analytics, have enabled travel insurance companies to create personalized user experiences. Furthermore, governments across various countries have necessitated insurance documents in visa applications to mitigate travel risks. On account of these factors, the market value is expected to reach US$ 41.3 Billion by 2026, exhibiting 17.43% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
