From lost baggage and cancelled flights, travel insurance comparison site Squaremouth.com shared what travellers are most concerned about.
Seventy-one per cent of travellers report being more concerned about air travel disruptions than previous years. With lingering impacts on travel, 60 per cent of tourists still want travel insurance coverage for Covid-19 and about half of customers on Squaremouth.com are buying travel insurance specifically in relation to current airline issues.
For the month of July, Squaremouth reported only 22 per cent of travel insurance claims were related to Covid-19. Instead, travel insurance claims are diversifying, with a growing number related to flight cancellations due to flight crew.
Half of travellers (50 per cent) say being reimbursed for trip expenses that went unused during a delay, like a night at a hotel, is most important. Other in-demand coverage includes reimbursement for expenses during a delay, reimbursement to rebook a missed flight, and reimbursement for lost or delayed baggage, in that order.
