New reports support female traveller safety
By April Waterston, published 09/8/19
Female traveller safety is looked at in detail with a new series of reports published by travel risk intelligence company Riskline.
Designed to advise female travellers working abroad, The Female Traveller Safety Reports are a series of detailed country-specific reports researched by local intelligence experts.
Riskline’s team of female analysts has created bespoke reports for over 220 countries and territories, all providing information on local customs and laws, safety concerns, and health and wellness issues that directly affect female travellers.
With over 90% of female travellers stating that safety concerns affected what they did in their personal time when travelling for work (GBTA/AIG Travel survey 2018), the new Female Traveller Safety Reports help businesses to address the needs of their female business travellers.
Riskline’s Operations Manager for the Americas, Suzanne Sangiovese, explains: “Not all travellers are the same, and female travellers face unique safety risks. Women can be perceived as an “easier target” for criminals and are more likely than men to be victims of sexual harassment.
"The new Female Traveller Safety Reports contain comprehensive and up to date information on local customs and laws as well as details of cultural nuances and bias in business settings.
“Our trusted intelligence experts on the ground assess risk on a 24/7 basis using internationally recognised risk management procedures, which focus on the safety and security of travellers and the integrity of their travel plans.”
The Female Traveller Safety Reports are accessible to employers and their staff via Riskline’s portal and app
