While travel today is safer than ever before; nevertheless, it can be stressful even for the most experienced travellers. Domestic and international travel presents certain risks for anyone, especially in areas of the world where the government has limited control over its citizenry and where law and order are not as formally established as they are in the developed world. Threats, including crime, terrorisms, espionage, health, climate, earthquakes and tsunamis are realistic; however they can be managed with proper planning and safety procedures. Having a practical travel plan prepared in advance of the departure date that considers all aspects of a traveller’s safety and security from departure until return, will ensure a safe, secure and enjoyable trip.
