Female business travellers have a valuable new resource to advise and support them when travelling and working abroad. The Female Traveller Safety Reports, launched by travel risk intelligence company Riskline, are a new addition to a series of detailed country-specific reports carefully researched by trusted local intelligence experts on the ground.
Riskline’s experienced team of female analysts has created bespoke reports for over 220 countries and territories, all providing information on local customs and laws, safety concerns as well as specific details on health and wellness that directly affect female travellers. These expert reports are designed to support a company’s Duty of Care obligation to keep their employees safe while travelling.
The Female Traveller Safety Reports contain granular detail specific to particular areas of each country and have been designed by experts to appeal to a wide spectrum of female travellers, regardless of age, whether on a short or long-term assignment or travelling for work or study.
The Female Traveller Safety Reports are accessible to employers and their staff via Riskline’s portal and app.
Women’s safety concerns impact personal time
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.
Suzanne Sangiovese, operations manager for the Americas at Riskline, explained: “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 the 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 focused on the safety and security of travellers and the integrity of their travel plans.”
Riskline has been in operation since 2007 and is based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Its security services are trusted by small business and Fortune 500 companies alike across a wide range of industries.
