Last year, Chubb conducted research on the travel market in Thailand to find out the travel behaviour and insurance purchase habits of Thai travellers. Five hundred and fifty-six respondents participated in the online survey conducted over two days. 64% od respondents are in Bangkok and Central area.
On average, Thai travellers took two to three international trips per year. Countries in Southeast Asia topped their choice of frequent visits. Japan was their preferred choice of destination, followed closely by Singapore (54%), China (42%) and Laos and Korea (33%).
From the survey, five interesting facts were uncovered with regards to Thai travellers:
1. More than half of Thai travellers (52%) purchased travel insurance every time for their international trips while 32% of Thais have bought it for all of their domestic trips.
2. The key motivation to buying international travel insurance pertained to concerns about suffering an accident overseas while having other insurance policies that did not cover travel determined the purchase of domestic travel insurance.
3. Desktop laptops and smartphones contributed almost equally as devices used for resarch and purchase of travel insurance. Frequent travellers and younger people are heaviest users of smartphones.
4. Thai travellers tended to buy travel insurance online together with their travel bookings.
