Don’t stay home!
Today’s average mobile phone contains more computing power than the first spacecraft had on board. We have access to more information, more destinations, and more real-time global news than ever before. We also have new risks, and those massive amounts of information ensure that we’re aware of the potential hazards we face.
Terrorism is one of the more prominent risks that we see and hear about and it’s impossible to ignore, but it is possible to make well-informed choices that minimise risk while you continue to live life the way you want to.
The point here is not to make light of terrorism, but to put it into perspective.
Acts of terrorism are on the rise and we need to consider potential risks, but those hazards are still small compared to what we’re exposed to in our everyday lives.
We can choose to stay home, or we can choose to travel, explore, and enjoy life on our own terms.
Protecting yourself in a changing world
Creating fear and changing our way of life is widely considered to be terrorism’s primary goal, but with the right information, protection and planning, we don’t have to buy into the fear. We don’t have to stay home. After all, the more we travel, the more we can avoid falling off those ladders…
Terrorism happens, but we don’t believe the likelihood is strong enough to warrant staying at home. We do feel it’s important to have the right protection in place that can prevent expenses and stress, and provide comprehensive cover for terrorism-related losses and expenses, including medical, personal accident, loss of property, delays, evacuation, and emergency temporary accommodation, should an act of terrorism take place close to where you’re staying.
We believe that you should be able to choose to cancel or postpone a trip if there’s an act of terrorism within 40 miles of your booked accommodation, up to 42 days prior to your trip, so we’ll have you covered for that possibility too*.
The world is changing, but so are we. Let’s leave the fear behind and plan an adventure!
