With much of the world re-opened post-COVID and business travel resuming, travel security and safety is on our minds. For many organizations, employees are, after a long hiatus, returning to their past travel routines. An important part of securing your return to international travel is considering potential corporate travel security services. In this post, we discuss basic tips on travel security and communications.
Tips on Travel Security
When considering options for travel safety, there are three areas to focus on that fall within two equally critical categories: prevention and response.
Travel Security Tip #1 – Think Ahead
The smartest travelers also know that even the best prevention measures are not a guarantee that nothing at all will go wrong. Crimes occur. People get sick. So how can a traveler prepare for these scenarios? Having a backup plan to accompany prevention measures means ensuring a reliable response.
Thinking about or “visualizing” all aspects of a future trip and its business purpose and related activities will give focus to any possible change in the risk environment and its associated security needs. The right prevention measures are important, and so is ensuring the right response. Since unforeseen events are still prone to occur, communications are essential to both proactively signifying ongoing safety and to enabling a response in an emergency.
Travel Security Tip #2 – Emergency Communications

The patented App and communications system offers travelers a way to stay connected with advice and assistance when it is needed.

Organizations can be assured that their business travelers have one-touch, seamless support, and those business travelers get peace of mind knowing that, when needed, there is a team of international experts ready to assist.
Travel Security Tip #3 – Use an Alarm
Take a look at this recent write-up in Travel and Leisure: https://www.travelandleisure.com/style/shopping/tiktok-viral-door-stop-alarm-amazon. A flight attendant’s viral TikTok covered a very important topic about prevention and described the value of bringing a doorstop alarm along on your travels. This small piece of hardware can do wonders for prevention, as can other types of devices. Prevention-focused travelers think about everything from personal safety to ways to keep themselves healthy.
To harness the powers of prevention, you’ll find that these travelers are equipped with a spectrum of readily obtainable products. There’s the aforementioned door alarm, which is small and easy to pack and can help keep you safe in your hotel room. There are personal alarms, tiny and portable, that, when deployed, emit high-decibel noises. Most bad actors won’t like that kind of attention being called to them, which can help expedite their departure. If you’re worried about your health, basic measures like masks, gloves and hand sanitizer can do wonders to keep germs at bay.
Corporate Travel Security Services are Part of the Puzzle
