Travel Insurance is a type of trip insurance that covers the costs and losses associated with travel. It acts as useful protection for those who travel domestically and abroad. Some of these trip insurance cover damage to personal property and rented equipment such as rental cars. The market is primarily driven by increased tourism nationally and internationally over recent years. Furthermore, most travel companies have been providing travel insurance with 24/7 emergency services such as cash wire assistance, replacing lost passports, and re-booking canceled flights.

On the contrary, technological advancements such as geo-location, application program interface (API), artificial intelligence (AI), data mining, and global positioning system (GPS), among others, are creating lucrative business prospects for insurers. With the aid of emerging technologies, insurers are expected to improve traditional travel insurance delivery platforms in order to increase productivity and provide smooth user experiences.
