India Travel Insurance Market – By Insurance Coverage

Based on insurance coverage, the India travel insurance market is segmented into three categories: single trip, annual multi-trip, and long stay. Due to the development in business travel combined with rising disposable income, single trip travel insurance accounts for a substantial market share among them. However, more accessible and less expensive travel has made it easier for various families and fully autonomous travelers to take multiple trips in a year, resulting in a significant increase in annual multi-trip travel insurance.
