As businesses expand their global footprint together with their operations and supply chains, we find employees frequently travelling internationally across a variety of borders. Travelling to far-flung places, often in areas of political, social and economic instability, increases the risk to personnel considerably.

It is important now, more than ever, to factor in the increased threat impact to travel risk.  Having comprehensive travel risk management policies and procedures in place is fundamental to supporting your travel risk management programme (TRM).  Taking proactive measures can help mitigate those risks and protect your people and your organization from a multitude of travel risks and the duty of care liability.  A “duty to disclose” concept of providing timely information & intelligence before someone travels, so an informed decision can be made regarding the risk and a need to travel, is part of that all-important defense in cases of corporate litigation.

Educating your travelers in the travel risks they may face and how to avoid them in an engaging way helps promote safe travel practices and policy compliance together with reducing travel stress and ultimately increasing productivity.


Addressing your travel risk requirements would be at a pace that suits a company’s situation and designed to minimize the disruption to that business.
