American insurance website Squaremouth has reported that Morocco was among its top four fastest growing travel destinations. Egypt, Tanzania, and Colombia also made the list.
Morocco had the second highest year-by-year increase at 73 percent. Egypt ranked number one with an increase of 146 percent. Tanzania pulled in a 61 percent increase and Columbia 60 percent. The four countries surpassed Israel, Iceland, Portugal, and Vietnam, last year’s fastest growing travel destinations.
The data was based on Squaremouth’s statistics revealing where its customers bought travel insurance for the most.
The website reported that their average traveler to Morocco spent $3,673.32 on their trip, a 7 percent increase from 2017.
Interestingly, the website noted a large boom of tourists from the “Silent Generation” to Morocco, at a 76% increase. The Silent Generation generally refers to those born between 1925 and 1942, who are in their 70s and 80s today.
