A single comprehensive solution, multiple trip insurance eliminates the hassle of getting a new plan for each trip. These insurance contracts offer easy renewal, financial assistance, and document clearance.
Additionally, many governments have made it mandatory to submit travel insurance documentation when applying for a visa, fueling market expansion.

Also, various companies are offering affordable travel insurance plans, prompting individuals to avail of these services. Moreover, online travel agency websites, company websites, and applications are increasingly common places to purchase travel insurance. The market for online travel insurance is growing as a result.

This growth was achieved by the strong performance of e-commerce channels such as airlines, OTA, and event ticketing.
Furthermore, various travel insurance providers are partnering with other companies to expand their services. For instance, in 2022, Allianz partnered with Vistara, an Indian airline company, to offer optional travel insurance to its passengers. The optional travel insurance coverage will offer coverage in several situations, including trip disruptions and cancellations, lengthy delays, missing connections, international medical crises, and baggage problems.
