More to Protect: InsureMyTrip Offers Travel Insurance Advice as Trip Costs Rise
WARWICK, R.I., March 28, 2022 — According to data from InsureMyTrip, the average trip cost being insured is now $9,366 CAD — up from $6,273 CAD at the beginning of 2022. Average vacation costs for policyholders are an estimated $2,000 more this year than in 2019, before the pandemic. The latest Travel Price Index (TPI), which measures the cost of travel away from home, also confirms a steady rise in travel-related expenses such as airfare, fuel prices, and hotels.
“Travellers are paying more for vacations, which means they have more to lose if they need to cancel or cut a trip short,” says InsureMyTrip Director of Product Meghan Walch. “A travel insurance policy can help protect that financial investment — for domestic and international trips.”
