The Travel Insurance market size is projected to reach approximately $ 119.31 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 26.1% from 2022 to 2030. Travel insurance aids the traveler in preparing them for any unprecedented events that can negatively affect their travel. Travel insurance provides financial protection against expenses or losses incurred as a result of unforeseen circumstances while traveling within the country or abroad. Typically, this includes the cost of lost or stolen items, medical emergencies, accidental death, and trip cancellation or interruption costs. It is valid from the date of travel until the arrival of the insured at the place of residence. Several companies now offer travel insurance along with 24/7 emergency services including replacement of lost passports, cash assistance, and rebooking of canceled flights. Major players also offer individual options depending on the geographic location and the insured person’s needs.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The COVID19 pandemic has brought the world to a standstill, with unprecedented and unforeseen consequences affecting people’s lives, the global economy, communities, and even livelihoods, and the ability to the global recession and record-high layoffs. With strict quarantine regulations and travel restrictions around the world, the travel and tourism sector has experienced a severe economic downturn. According to a report released by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) in January 2021, international arrivals decreased by more than 74% in 2020 compared to the previous 2019. These factors have impacted the travel insurance market.
However, with the easing of travel restrictions, the tourism and hospitality sectors are expected to regain their customers soon. According to a survey conducted by Morning Consult and commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) in February 2021, more than 56% of Americans indicated an intention to travel shortly. Such cases promise great opportunities for the growth of the travel insurance market in the coming years.
The growth of the global travel insurance market is driven by factors such as increased travel demand after the pandemic. In addition, government-imposed travel policies are further driving the growth of the travel insurance market. However, the low penetration of insurance policies has limited the growth of this market. On the contrary, new technological developments in the travel industry are expected to present many opportunities for the expansion of the travel insurance market during the forecast period.
Ø Increase in Tourism
The growing number of international travelers seeking financial protection while traveling should be driving the growth of the industry. Growing demand for lost and found replacements, travel cancellations, and health concerns will boost market revenues. The cost of such accidents is significant when traveling abroad, and travel insurance offers several benefits that minimize risks while traveling.
- The lack of awareness of different schemes
the lack of awareness of different insurance schemes and the benefits of this alternative can affect travel insurance market negatively. Moreover, relaxed restrictions and low fluctuation in rates due to a large number of competitors have caused a decline in gross written premium.
- Travel insurance companies offer customized plans to increase the customer base
The travel insurance market is poised for significant development as more and more insurance companies offer affordable and attractive plans. These companies offer attractive packages for various travel categories. For example, Chubb Limited offers Passport 360 travel insurance which offers upgrade options including golf packages. This package covers recreational equipment delays and recreational vehicle breakdowns. Companies are also focusing on existing value-added plans, including online health consultations and Wi-Fi rental services.

The annual multi-travel insurance segment dominated the travel insurance market in 2020 and is forecast to show the highest growth and this segment is expected to maintain this trend over the forecast period. The growth of the sector is attributed to the normalization of travel restrictions after the COVID-19 pandemic and the recovery of the tourism industry.
