Travel Security Assistance

Helping to mitigate travel risks and supporting travellers when something goes wrong

No traveller plans to be involved in a security incident, but incidents can – and do – happen. World Travel Protection global security specialists understand the risks and the potential impact that incidents have on travellers and those responsible for them. We’re here to help you navigate these situations with greater safety and ease.

Mitigating and Minimising Travel Security Risks

At World Travel Protection, our global security assistance services are proactive and insights-driven, aimed at preventing threats before they become an issue. Through our world-class technology and intelligence tools, we empower travellers and their risk managers to make smarter, safer choices before, during and after their travels.

“Our international security team has access to up-to-date intelligence that most travellers and corporations with travelling workforces do not,” says Rodger Cook, World Travel Protection’s General Manager – Security Services, who oversees intelligence-gathering operations from our state-of-the-art 24/7 Command Centre in Brisbane, Australia.

“Together, our travel risk management experts use our technology to help mitigate risks via real-time alerts delivered to travellers on-the-ground, wherever they may be.”

Having the support of the World Travel Protection team means business and leisure travellers can avoid risks and organisations can enhance security measures that keep their people safe.

Country Analysis

Our Travel Assist Portal contains detailed country and city guides that are continuously updated, providing risk managers with important information around a dozen different risk factors such as political instability, conflict, unrest, crime and natural or environmental risks. This information helps risk managers make informed decisions and mitigate risks.

Travel Assist App

Our World Travel Protection security experts and risk managers can keep in contact with travellers via our market-leading Travel Assist App. Its geolocation capabilities mean our security team can locate the user with pinpoint accuracy in an emergency to continually assess any potential risks and exit routes in real-time.

Expert Help When Security Threats Arise

Our World Travel Protection team has over 30 years’ experience keeping travellers safe. Should a potential threat turn into a real risk, our team will not only know about it – they’ll also know how to help.

“A lot of businesses – particularly small and medium-sized enterprises – don’t necessarily have the resources to identify threats and make informed decisions,” says Cook.

“By continually monitoring global threats from within our Command Centres, we can relay relevant information to travellers immediately via our Travel Assist App and to their risk managers via our Travel Assist Portal. This helps ensure travellers can make the right decisions at the right time and get help if they need it.”
