The Risk World Map 2024 gives travelers an overview of the safety situation based on the country they are traveling to. Recently, the dangerous situation has escalated in some regions due to attacks, kidnappings, terrorist attacks, and climate change. This has raised concerns about security for both business and leisure travelers.
Travelers need to exercise caution while visiting certain travel destinations due to the increasing extremist activities, armed conflicts, and risks of infection. The ongoing war in the Middle East has further increased travel risks, which are also felt in other parts of the world through large-scale demonstrations and hate attacks. Riskline, in collaboration with Safeture, a travel risk management platform, is working to identify and mitigate these risks.
It is expected that climate change and the ongoing El Nino weather phenomenon will cause new temperature records to be set in the upcoming year. As a result, travelers should be prepared for prolonged periods of high temperatures, forest fires, and water shortages in various regions.
To help travelers assess the risks associated with their travel plans in 2024, an interactive "Risk Map" highlights regions with particularly high risks for both holiday and business travelers and those that are comparatively safer.
