Why new travel trends mean new risks

25/09/2015

At a glance

  • 76% of High Net Worth (HNW) travellers are now seeking unique, off-the-beaten-track experiences, with a subsequent exposure to risks
  • By 2024, space travel and underwater resorts might become fashionable holiday choices for the more wealthy

With more people searching for new and unusual holidays, a growing market has developed for high-end adventure travel. Research by bespoke Travel advisors, Zicasso, states 76% of luxury travel agents are now frequently asked to provide off-the-beaten-track experiences.

These adventure trips range from excursions to the polar regions, with travellers seeking to take part in activities such as sailing the Northwest Passage from Alaska to Greenland, or visiting Antarctica’s emperor penguins, to exploring the natural wonders of the Galapagos Islands.

Morocco, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Peru and South Africa have all been voted top destinations to visit in 2015, offering distinctive culture and adventurous excursions.

However, the more unique the trip, the greater potential risk it can present. Even with the best planning, unforeseen events such as natural disasters, terrorism or hijacking, have the potential to ruin a holiday.

Future travel trends

HNW travellers are likely to become even more adventurous in the years ahead. Destinations will continue to become more unique, with space travel and underwater resorts identified as possible options for HNW travellers in future years.

In addition to new travel destinations, the hotel experience is also expected to transform. Social media profiles could play a large role in the future, enabling hotel guests to book a room tailored to their taste, providing the unique experience they desire and expect.

The travel industry is changing rapidly. Advances in technology will contribute to a travel experience that is more intuitive and personalised. As intrepid travellers continue to seek adventure, they will need protection from an insurer that understands the range of risks they face.

How Travelinsured can help


OK, so we're not quite able to insure a space trip yet, but we can offer cover for the more unique experience. Our bespoke policy offers up to £15,000 cancellation cover as standard and can cater for most adventurous activities. We also offer up to £25m medical cover which includes medical evacuation costs - essential for those more remote areas on the globe.

In addition we offer highly tailored policy option to cater for those very individual and specific insurance needs allowing you to be covered for the adventure you have planned.

Case Study 1

We recently arranged very specific cover for the cancellation of essential transport both for the outbound and return journey. Our client, who has very particular medical needs, was hiring an plane to transport themselves and their entourage from the UK to Scandinavia. They needed specific cover to protect themselves if a last minute incident meant they could not fly as the charter was non-refundable. We arranged a specific policy to met this client's demands and needs giving them the peace of mind they needed to commit to the hire.

Case Study 2

Our client was taking part in the amateur Paris-Dacca rally on a specialised motorcycle. He hit a rock in the desert, went over his handlebars and caused considerable damage to himself (and the bike). He was airlifted by helicopter out of the desert and taken to Marsailles. Here he was stabilised before an air ambulance brought him back to the UK for a private ambulance transfer to a local hospital. All paid for by the insurance we had arranged for him. His bike? That too was recovered to the UK
