Have there been any shifts in the market over recent years?

UK residents are making more visits abroad per year, which has been influential in driving the growth of annual policies. It is often more cost effective to buy one annual multi-trip policy than multiple single-trip policies if traveling numerous times per year. Annual policies are also more convenient as they provide longer-term cover, and renewal only occurs once a year.

There has also been a rise in the popularity of added-value current accounts, which has contributed to the increase in the number of annual policies sold as an account feature. Meanwhile there has been a decline in the number of customers buying travel insurance through a tour operator, travel agent, or as part of a package where single policies tailored to the needs of the arranged holiday are often a common add-on.
