All-inclusive vacations and cruises among the top trips for travelers this year.
Whether it's honeymooning couples, or just vacationers seeking the best value for their money, all-inclusive vacations and cruises will be the top trips for value travelers in 2013, according to a survey of 70 travel agents by Allianz Travel Insurance.
This survey on travel trends for 2013 also found that Europe will be this year's most popular travel destination, chosen by 44% of travel agents. Meanwhile, Mexico was by far the top vote getter when it came to naming the best value destination, garnering 42% of agents.
When asked what types of vacations offer the best value, all-inclusive vacations was the top vote-getter (35% of agents) followed by cruises (25% of agents).
In fact, all–inclusive vacations are recommended by 28% of agents for budget-conscious honeymooners. Still, couples are making honeymoons a priority, spending nearly three times more on this trip than a typical vacation. And while 67% of couples spend $2,500–$5,000 for their honeymoon, another 23% spend between $5,000 and $10,000.
Alan Josephs of Allianz Global Assistance USA, the parent company of Allianz Travel Insurance, offers this perspective: "Honeymoons have always been a significant investment for couples, both financially and emotionally. It's supposed to be a perfect trip. But, we all know that things can still happen."
"When booking international travel and cruises, travel insurance is especially important, and we're pleased to supply coverage that offers both financial protection and peace of mind."
Allianz Global Assistance USA provides its customers with coverage should a planned trip be cancelled, or interrupted due to certain unforeseen circumstances that are detailed in the purchased policy.*
