Since the UK government laid out their plans on the roadmap out of lockdown, bookings for international travel have risen by over 500%. Europe remains as a top destination, with trips starting to take place from June and peaking in July, through to September.
Travelling later in 2021 and Summer 2022 is also looking positive. Customers who are not quite ready yet to take that first step abroad, instead are looking forward to a trip in the UK, who have also seen a dramatic rise in bookings.
We all know how hard the pandemic has hit the travel industry, but with the on-going efforts being made globally on the vaccine roll-out, a positive future lies ahead. As life starts to begin to get back to normal and customers start to make those exciting plans for those special trips with family or friends, its important now, more than ever, to take out travel insurance.
With high streets starting to show some signs of recovery and with the summer campaign launching at the same time as the lift on international travel (other nations to follow), we feel we are best placed to offer an exclusive in-branch only promotion for your customers that is not available online.
You will have seen in Branch Focus more details about our Summer Campaign Promotion.
Amanda Duffy – Senior Product Manager said “The days are getting longer, the sun is starting to shine, maybe a little warmer but there is a definitely a taste of spring in the air, with the summer fast approaching us! I am so excited to see the return of Travel Insurance back into branch and the opening up of international travel again. It’s been a long time coming but we are well and truly on the road to recovery. The summer campaign is a great opportunity to re-engage with our customers. Planning for any trip is exciting, lets join our customers on this important journey, being there in person, for the people that need us most.”
We understand it may have been a while since you last completed a Travel Insurance transaction, so you may want to remind yourself and your branch team on the sales process and cover available through our products, this can be found in Branch Focus here.
