UK Travel Insurance: Market Dynamics and Opportunities

Date: 2015-11

The UK travel insurance market is very competitive – unlike other lines where a select few providers have a wider customer base than others. This has resulted in a finely priced market in which rates are set to cover claims inflation. However, the extent of hardening will be limited by competition and the amount of choice available to consumers.

Key Highlights
Insurers are making small sums of money from the market and it has remained this way for several years after its peak in 2010. The market is interlinked with the economy and the levels of disposable income consumers have to spend on travel.

Travel insurance is often bought for a specific trip or to cover several planned trips. Consumers risk wasting an annual policy or letting it lapse if they do not have sufficient travel planned for the remainder of the policy term.”
