In India travel insurance market was valued at over $ 80 million in 2018, exhibiting a CAGR of close to 12%. Travel insurance market in India accounts for less than 1% of the total travel insurance industry worldwide. As individuals are becoming more mobile, travel has become a part of academic, business and personal life. The major aim of the travel insurance is to provide hassle-free travel to the tourists and reducing the risks to the minimal. Therefore, it is always a better option to buy a travel insurance plan to mitigate the risks associated with travelling. Purchasing a travel insurance policy provides cover against medical and non-medical travel-related contingencies such as emergency medical condition, loss of tickets & passport, trip cancellation, curtailment & interruption, loss/delay of baggage, etc.

The policy also covers the financial loss that may incur while traveling domestically or internationally, which is further anticipated to boost the growth of travel insurance market in the country. In addition, increasing natural calamities coupled with medical emergencies are some of the common problems registered while traveling, thereby pushing the demand for travel insurance. However, the lack of awareness about insurance policies might act as a major impediment to the growth of India travel insurance market during the forecast period.

Based on insurance cover, the travel insurance market is segmented into single trip, annual multi-trip, and long stay. Among them, the single trip travel insurance accounts for a relatively large market share owing to the growth in business travel coupled with rise in disposable income, which is creating the need for safe traveling. However, more affordable and cheaper travel has made it easy for several family travelers, and fully independent travelers to take up several trips in a year, thus creating a substantial growth for annual multi-trip travel insurance, which is driving the growth of this segment through 2024.

The major market players in India travel insurance market are TATA AIG, Apollo Munich, Bharti AXA, Bajaj Allianz, SBI General Insurance, Royal Sundaram, HDFC Ergo, ICICI Lombard, Reliance, Religare, etc. The key players are investing more to develop new insurance policies in order to increase their customer bases and expand their geographic reach.
