More businesses are sending female travellers around the world yet we know that more than 80%* of female travellers are very nervous about what they may face when travelling.
In order to ensure your travellers feel safe and protected, it is imperative to provide access to destination-specific advice based on their risk profile and offer 24/7 assistance should anything go wrong while travelling.

How to protect your female travellers
We advise organisations ensure they provide the following:
- Access to location-specific information – which they can review at their convenience
- Tailored communications – perhaps automated alerts, reminding them of the former information available
- General education – this could be an eLearning platform, where you ask all travellers to complete as part of general safety education
- Face to face training – especially for those people going to high risk locations – it may be suitable to create a tailored approach
