When travel insurance started to sink, Staysure found a lifeline – with search

Staysure is the UK’s most trusted travel insurance provider, with a history of meeting complex traveller needs and an obsession with both customers and data. In 2020, the pandemic shrank Staysure’s travel insurance market by 90%, but instead of going dormant, the company stepped up by asking a key question: what do travel customers need from us now? 

Adthena’s search intelligence data provided the answers and charted a course to product innovation, business survival and significant growth during an uncertain time. 

Letting search be the compass

Adthena’s search data revealed to Staysure both what travellers were searching for and where the gaps in the market were. The company used those insights to launch three innovative new product offerings to meet the immediate needs of customers, keep the business afloat and gain +133% in market share.

Staysure’s story demonstrates to other search marketers the power search data has to identify and create windows of opportunity even during difficult economic times. The right search data can reveal strategic possibilities, new threats, emerging trends and the best route forward in good times and bad.
