International Destinations

When you select ‘International’ from the trip type filter on the Air Segments dashboard, the chart in the top left of the dashboard displays the number of trips – or stopovers (if we use industry jargon) – within a country i.e. USA, China, United Kingdom etc.

Number of trips displayed by Country

And if you click on the individual countries displayed in the chart, a list of cities (destinations) will appear.

The question is how do we determine a destination or stopover?  We use the recognised industry (IATA) standard; any break in a journey for longer than 24 hours is regarded as a stopover.

Fortunately for us, the air segment data we receive from the Travel Managers makes it easy to calculate a stopover, as they provide us the date, arrival and departure times of each segment within the itinerary.  This allows us to calculate the order the flights to determine if the traveller spent longer than 24 hours at a destination.

So when your travel insurance premium is up for renewal, simply log into Travel Analytics and navigate to the Air Segments dashboard, and all the information you need on the number of trips to countries throughout the world is there at your fingertips.
