Published on

ravel Insurance and Assistance in Northern, Central and Eastern Europe investigates the market for stand-alone travel insurance and assistance in 12 countries in this region, namely, Austria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey.

This market is estimated by Finaccord to be worth EUR 1.52 billion in gross written premiums in 2012 and its value has proved to be fairly resilient in spite of a challenging economic environment. Moreover, the competitive and distribution dynamics of the market continue to evolve with new channels emerging and partnerships with major distributors subject to regular change.

For the research, Finaccord investigated the distribution partnerships of over 1,500 travel trade, transportation and financial organisations across the region; it also analysed systematically the involvement in travel insurance in each country of other key distributor categories, namely automotive clubs, direct sales, online aggregators and brokers, other online brands, and retailers.

The report, which represents an update and expansion to previous Finaccord studies on the subject issued since 2003, is accompanied by an Excel PartnerBASE™ dataset that details the travel insurance partnerships of each of the travel trade, transportation and financial organisations covered, plus a convenient market data annexe, also in Excel format.

Key findings from the executive summary include:

- across the region as a whole, the number of foreign trips (lasting one night or more) rose from 187.4 million in 2008 to 199.4 million in 2012, with a contraction only occurring in 2009 – this equates to compound annual growth of 1.6% during this period;

- the number of travel policies sold in Turkey rose by around 10.7% per annum during the same period and other markets that made fairly strong progress by the same measure were Romania, Finland and Norway with respective annual growth rates of 6.8%, 4.8% and 4.4%;

- across all organisations in the region classified as online travel specialists (e.g. ebookers, octopustravel, opodo, Travellink), 69.5% have an arrangement for selling travel cover with country-specific rates of provision in this category peaking at 90.9% and 90.0% in Switzerland and Germany, respectively;

- in terms of its number of distribution partnerships among travel trade, transportation and financial organisations, Munich Re – often through Europäische Reiseversicherung (ERV) – is the leading group in the region, followed by Allianz, Generali, HanseMerkur and De Goudse.

  3. 3. Travel Insurance and Assistance in Northern, Central and Eastern Europe What is the research? Finaccord’s report titled Travel Insurance and Assistance in Northern, Central and Eastern Europe investigates the market for stand-alone travel insurance and assistance in 12 countries in this region, namely, Austria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey. This market is estimated by Finaccord to be worth EUR 1.52 billion in gross written premiums in 2012 and its value has proved to be fairly resilient in spite of a challenging economic environment. Moreover, the competitive and distribution dynamics of the market continue to evolve with new channels emerging and partnerships with major distributors subject to regular change. For the research, Finaccord investigated the distribution partnerships of over 1,500 travel trade, transportation and financial organisations across the region; it also analysed systematically the involvement in travel insurance in each country of other key distributor categories, namely automotive clubs, direct sales, online aggregators and brokers, other online brands, and retailers. The report, which represents an update and expansion to previous Finaccord studies on the subject issued since 2003, is accompanied by an Excel PartnerBASE™ dataset that details the travel insurance partnerships of each of the travel trade, transportation and financial organisations covered, plus a convenient market data annexe, also in Excel format.

  4. 4. Travel Insurance and Assistance in Northern, Central and Eastern Europe What methodology has been used? Finaccord’s investigation into the travel insurance and assistance market in Northern, Central and Eastern Europe draws on several sources. First, Finaccord analysed the size, segmentation and dynamics of the underlying travel market, developing standardised data for the number of overseas trips in each country between 2008 and 2012, split between holiday and business travel. The report also includes top level findings from a separate survey carried out during the first quarter of 2012 focused on the provision of travel insurance and assistance packaged with payment cards and bank accounts by close to 500 banks and other card issuers in the region. However, the largest element was the extensive survey of the most important travel trade, transportation and financial organisations across this region. These were investigated during the second quarter of 2012 to find out: if they distribute travel insurance and assistance policies; if so, what operating model is used (e.g. external underwriter, external broker, captive underwriter etc.); and if so, who their insurance partner(s) is / are. These companies include airlines, banks, ferry / railway operators, online travel specialists and specialised card providers, as well as mainstream travel agents and tour operators, thereby offering comprehensive coverage of these major distribution categories.
