World's riskiest destinations revealed by new interactive map

Risk experts at International SOS have designed an interactive guide showing the most dangerous places to visit.

International SOS and Control Risks, the medical and travel security experts, have designed a new interactive ‘Travel Risk Map’ for 2018, which shows risk ratings across the world.

According to the map, countries such as Libya, Mali, Afghanistan and Syria pose the greatest security threat to a traveller or group, while well-trodden southeast Asian nations Vietnam and Thailand have some of the worst road safety in the world.

The Ipsos Mori Business Resilience Trends Watch 2018 found that nearly two-thirds (63%) of people think travel risks have increased in the past year – with security threats and natural disasters cited as main reasons for changed travel plans.

Ipsos Mori’s research also revealed 58% of business travellers changed their travel plans due to security threats. Almost half (43%) had to modify their itineraries because of natural disasters, including extreme weather events.

To accompany the research, International SOS and Control Risks have launched the latest edition of their award-winning Travel Risk Map. The digital, interactive map includes revised risk ratings for countries on key security and medical issues.

The latest risk rating changes include increased risk in Puerto Rico and some areas of the Caribbean due to the effects of the recent hurricanes. However, the risk factors in some European countries have dropped, due to improved medical care.
