According to Allianz Global Assistance, a leading travel insurance*provider, travelers – including students, families, and couples – seeking an international vacation experience this spring break are most likely to travel to Mexico.

Allianz Global Assistance reviewed more than one million trips from late February to early April and determined that based on airport arrivals, travel to Mexico accounted for 30% of international trips, greatly surpassing the second place spot, Puerto Rico with nearly 10% of travel. Other international destinations ranking in the top 10 were Dominican Republic, Bahamas, Costa Rica, Canada, Jamaica, Aruba, Netherlands Antilles and Turks and Caicos. The top three domestic destinations for all types of spring break vacations were Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and New York.

“Mexico is the ultimate spring break destination, especially with so much to offer for all types of travelers, like great beaches and coastlines, delicious food and culture,” said Joe Mason, chief marketing officer at Allianz Global Assistance USA. “But no matter where travelers are headed for Spring Break, it’simportant to remain vigilant and protect yourself with travel insurance that provides 24/7 access to travel assistance services should something unexpected occur.” 

Allianz Travel Insurance has provided important travel tips for a safe and healthy spring break, no matter the travel destination:

  • Go on a learning spree. Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or not, it’s important to gather as much information as you can about your destination before you depart, from both a health and safety standpoint.his includes finding out if there are any particular areas or hot spots you should avoid in your destination.
  • Don’t broadcast on social media that you’re away.  According to research, over 1/3 of social media users post status information regarding travel plans. Though it’s tempting to post Facebook and Twitter updates letting your social networks know how much fun you’re having on your trip, try to resist the urge.Letting the world know that you’re not home makes you a prime target to potential criminals.
  • Play by the rules. If you’re traveling internationally, learn what documentation is required to enter and leave the country as well as the country’slaws and criminal penalties. Laws in other countries are often quite different from those in the U.S.

Allianz Global Assistance USA sells travel insurance through most major U.S. airlines, leading travel agents, online travel agencies and directly to consumers.
