Add Travel Insurance to Your Sales Portfolio

With so many types of insurance policies and plans available for all types of roles and interests, it’s hard to know what to focus on when going into sales.

If you have an interest in health, music, cars, advertising or finance, an insurance career is an opportunity to continue to learn about and serve your community for many years.

The insurance industry employs more than 2.8 million people and according to the Insurance Information Institute, “employment of insurance brokers and sales agents is expected to grow 9% by the year 2024.” Other predictions are saying that it could go even higher due to expanding travel mandates and requirements.

What Type of Insurance Do You Offer Customers?

Life, Auto, and Health insurance are among the more recognizable policies and they are usually purchased through employee benefit plans or personal plans with an agent directly. 

Many of these plans could be considered a one-and-done plan that once purchased, unless there are life changes involving birth, death, marital status, or new job or car, there would be no need to revise them. They automatically renew and people are good to go. 

Other types of insurance, such as travel or trip insurance, are more fluid and could provide opportunities for you to not only help your current clients, but spark sales from new businesses or individuals. 

Should I Sell Travel Insurance?

The short answer: YES!! 

Globally, air traffic has reached about 70% of pre-pandemic levels, even with staffing and operational shortages and constraints, and closed borders in some destinations.

Even so, traveling was chaotic in 2022. Rental car shortages, over bookings of airlines, lost and even discarded luggage, and let’s not even start with all the delays. People were stranded at airports for days and many celebrated the holidays by returning home instead of visiting family and friends.

Will travel in 2023 be as overwhelming? Hopefully not. However, trends are pointing to more people traveling than before due to being cooped up for so long and itching to get out and get going! And people don’t want to experience a loss of time, money and fun ever again. They are looking for ways to protect their travel plans.

Give Your Clients Insurance to Cover Unexpected Travel Costs

Auto insurance, health insurance and home-owners insurance policies are mandatory due to state, federal, or banking requirements.

Due to the recent pandemic, some countries have started mandating trip insurance or travel medical insurance should a visitor need emergency medical evacuation or repatriation.  

This is an opportunity to sell insurance to people who are traveling domestically and internationally. The policy lasts only as long as the trip itself, so it’s possible to have clients return fairly regularly. 

An added benefit is that you then have people who see the other types of insurance you sell and might be inclined to bring all their insurance coverage needs to you.
