Research and analysis highlights Travel insurance premium income grew by 1.4 per cent in 2006. The increase in GWP was driven by an increase in the number of trips taken abroad. Conditions remained competitive mainly as a result of the high number of distributors active in the travel insurance market, which put pressure on premium rates.

The number of trips to North America fell in 2006 and this trend could benefit insurers, as medical costs are notoriously high in the U.S. Less exposure to these risks, as a result of changing travel patterns, could therefore have a positive impact on claims inflation.

The top 10 travel insurance advertisers experienced a significant turnover in 2006. Only the largest insurance providers have the marketing budget to consistently rank in the top 10 advertisers, whereas smaller providers tend to concentrate their efforts during one year only to ease back on their spending in the following year.
