InsureMyTrip provides comprehensive travel insurance plans to thousands of travelers both domestically and internationally every year.  Our travelers are literally discovering every corner of the globe. But what are the most popular locations?

We crunched the numbers and identified six countries that managed to lure the most customers this past year. While the results show Europe is a big draw, we were surprised to see the top destination was right in our backyard.

We can only imagine the multitude of reasons our customers flock to Mexico, but it is the top traveled destination in 2014. The country has everything to offer their tourists. It’s an excellent place to discover a small piece of the world’s history, relax by the calm shores of the Caribbean Sea, or experience cultural festivals like Dia de Los Muertos. Whatever the reason our customers travel there, one thing is for sure: it’s a trip they will never forget.

How we got these results? The InsureMyTrip data team researched top destinations of 2014 and narrowed the pool to those who travelled internationally but did not participate in a cruise.
