Bank360.hu writes that Hungarians love to travel to Croatia in the summer, to Italy in early autumn, and to Austria in the winter. Based on travel insurance contracts, 12 percent of travelers chose Austria as early as November, while Italy’s share was 11 percent. But in December, 28 percent of domestic travelers chose the western neighbour. In December, only 4 percent visited Italians.
Interestingly, Poland is the second most popular destination in December at 14 percent. Slovakia, the United Kingdom and Germany rounded out the top five.
Almost twice as many people visited Europe’s airports last year than the previous year. Istanbul won the award in 2022, but London Heathrow airport was the busiest since November. However, many factors can slow down the amazing development.
Among destinations outside Europe, Egypt and the United States were the most popular, and there was insurance for New Zealand, which was the farthest destination. Bank360.hu writes that
The most expensive travel insurance, which was included in their December statements, was a two-month trip to Australia for 160,000 HUF.
The cheapest contracts were for one-day Austrian trips for 225 HUF.
Hungarians also traveled to many distant and exotic countries in December: in addition to already “established” locations such as Thailand and Indonesia, they also went to Mauritius, Tanzania, the Maldives, the Canary Islands, the Cayman Islands, Dominica, Singapore, Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates, and also to Oman. Many spectators headed to Japan, and there was a brave traveler who aimed at Belarus.
Winter sports are full of dynamism
The most popular program in December is sightseeing, and nearly two-thirds of travelers indicate this activity when making their insurance contracts.
In addition, winter sports have been extremely popular, appearing every fifth decade.
In December, more than 9 percent of travelers said they were on a beach vacation, 12 percent went abroad for work and other purposes, and less than 1 percent went abroad for extreme sports and physical work.
Two-thirds of contracts were signed for a 1-5 day trip, which is below the average of over 1 week in the summer season; 16% went on a one-day trip.
Most of them (40 percent) traveled by car again, as in summer, 35 percent by plane, and the rest by other means (bus, train).
Most contracts are claimed for one or two principal underwriters.
Travel insurance is still mostly taken out the day before the trip (39 percent of respondents), and even 19 percent upon departure. This is not surprising, because travel insurance can be obtained online at any time and anywhere, even from a mobile phone, so it can be removed even at the last moment. In the last month of the year, there was also a high-minded traveler who ended his insurance contract 257 days before his trip, according to data from Bank360.hu.
