Why Conduct Research Ahead Of Your Travels

Build a Picture of the Destination


The first step is to provide yourself with the information you require to build a picture of the destination, your flight route and any stopovers. Find out information, such as, which are the safest places both to stay and for travelling around. When you research, you will be able to work out the following:

  • What have I got to do and by when to make this journey happen?
  • Conduct your risk and threat assessments and ask yourself: Are the risks justifiable?
  • What courses of action do I need to undertake on this journey, so I can stay safe?
  • Which documents, equipment and transport do I require to undertake this journey?
  • What are my contingency plans for lost cash, medical crisis or full evacuation emergency?
