Over 50 per cent of Explorer Travel Insurance customers to take multiple holidays this year

More than half (58 per cent) of the 1,500 respondents to Explorer’s survey said that they were planning two or more overseas trips during 2022, with Spain, Greece and France the most popular destinations.

 And despite the disruption of the past two years caused by the pandemic, when asked ‘what are the most important considerations when choosing a travel insurance policy’?, the top-two buying factors were emergency medical expenses cover not related to coronavirus (26 per cent), closely followed by the policy cost (25 per cent).

 Explorer’s Managing Director Ian Jennings commented: “For many, 2022 will be the first time that they have travelled overseas for 3 years.  It’s great that people want to reconnect with friends and family outside of the UK again, as well as take that well-earned summer break.”

He also added: “Whilst it’s true that cover relating to Coronavirus is an important part of our policies, it’s very encouraging that Explorer’s customers continue to recognise the importance of getting good cover for the type of non-Covid related medical emergencies for which we have been providing great value protection for over 10 years.”

A recent presentation from Consumer Intelligence at ITIC UK showed the ranking in order of importance that consumers place on the cover provided by travel insurance.
