IMG GlobalSecur, leading international travel security consulting experts at https://www.theimg.com/, is proud to announce a new post offering basic international travel safety tips for the holiday season. As both business / corporate and pleasure travel increases worldwide, more and more travelers engage in international travel before, during, and immediately after the holiday season. With peak travel goes peak security risks, and the post is a wake-up call for anyone planning an international trip as 2019 comes to a close.
“Global travel by air continues to set new records as does cross-border traffic on major international borders such as the USA / Canada border and the USA / Mexico border,” explained Chris Hagon, CEO of IMG GlobalSecur. “Our new post is a wake-up call for folks not to be deceived by Holiday Cheer lest they neglect to focus on basic travel security issues when crossing an international border.”
Interested persons can read the full post at https://www.fonetrac-go.com/blog/2019/11/holiday-travel-security/. The post explains that international travelers can face a spectrum of risks, particularly during holiday seasons. From pickpocketing and street robberies to medical emergencies, holiday travel can be fraught with scenarios that would be difficult enough to navigate at home. When they happen in another country, particularly where cultural and language barriers exist, they can prove even trickier to resolve. When planning international holiday travel, the best way to start is by researching one’s intended destination. The post also features links to key articles and resources on the topic and is meant not as a complete resource on international travel security tips during the holidays but more as a prompt so that busy travelers remember to research, consider, and plan their trips in light of security issues.
Indeed, digitally savvy persons are encouraged to check out the FoneTrac travel safety app at https://www.fonetrac-go.com/. The award-winning travel security app connects travelers to a back-end service (GlobalSecur at http://www.globalsecur.com/) which offers real-time, and real-person assistance to travelers. One of the happy elements in the news on international travel security is the growth of apps that can assist travelers in knowing about, and mitigating, global travel security risks.
GOING BEYOND TRAVEL SECURITY TIPS FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Here is background on this release. The holidays create a huge spike in all forms of travel, whether by car, by train, or by air. Indeed, with the increasing globalization across countries and continents, it should come as no surprise that security risks are rising as well. Terrorism is the obvious, high-profile risks but other risks as mundane as weather or human health increasingly impact business travel security. Indeed, the experts at IMG GlobalSecur have a vibrant consultant practice helping corporations and businesses with top-to-bottom security audits and advice. The new post is meant to stimulate the thought process not only among business travelers but also among HR managers and corporate executives who realize that they need to mitigate corporate vulnerabilities before (and not after) an incident occurs.
