Travel Security

Travel Security


Travel is often described as the world’s largest industry and it is historically, one of the fastest growing industries in the world. In fact, the United Nations World Trade Organization estimates that travel accounts for more than one-third of the value of total trade in global services. Travel and tourism is of particular importance for many developing countries. They therefore do all they can to attract as many visitors as possible. Unfortunately, the security agencies and services are not always sufficiently trained or equipped to handle an influx of tourists, and the result is often negative for the traveller. Despite this, new destinations, in particular in Asia, the Pacific, and in the Middle East, are steadily increasing their market share while more established tourist destinations, such as Europe and the Americas, have had less dynamic growth recently. This indicates that travellers are increasingly willing to explore new and exotic environments rather than the good old package trips to the seaside. The trend demands that travellers are more prepared than ever before if they are to ensure that their journey is problem free. The onus will be on all of us to make sure we are as prepared as we can be.
