Key Market Trends

Booming Tourism Demands After Pandemic

According to the World Tourism Organization, international visitor arrivals increased by 4.4 % to $1,184 million in 2015. Increased disposable income, package holidays, broad media coverage of various holiday kinds, and simple internet travel reservations have contributed to the tourism industry's expansion.

Regulations and Guidelines for Travels helps in Market growth

Regarding VISA policy, each country has its unique set of rules and restrictions for tourists of various nationalities. However, India increasingly requires travelers to purchase travel insurance to receive a VISA. Travel health insurance is required to visit nations such as the United States, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Norway, Finland, and Poland, among others. Due to the high medical expenditures and hospitalization fees in visiting countries, this provision guarantees that tourists are sufficiently covered in the event of medical crises. Travel health insurance covers medical expenses until the tourist returns to their home country for further treatment. The requirement of travel health insurance by authorities is a primary driver for the Indian travel insurance sector.
