Tips / Travel

Being safe while traveling is a big concern for most people. Having tools at your disposal to provide you with information about safe locations can make all the difference in the world when planning a vacation. The countries below are the safest to visit according to security specialists at International SOS.



Tokyo, Japan, was the safest city to visit in 2019 and it is also calculated to be one of the safest in 2020; tourists who should expect low-risk danger throughout the country. This comes as great news because Tokyo will host the 2020 Summer Olympic Games, which should draw a lot of large crowds and Olympic sports fans. Be sure to experience all Japan has to offer while visiting.



Greenland, Iceland, Finland, Demark, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Slovenia, and Norway are on the risk map as “insignificant,” as tourists should expect to have no issues and fear little to no danger while traveling in these countries. They offer a lot of attractions and activities to visitors who wish to explore the many sides, histories and cultures throughout Europe.



Our neighbor to the north is also another great country to explore with low risk. Depending on the province you may decide to visit, you will get to explore the Canadian way of life through food (especially because they love and appreciate all things maple), music, the diaspora of cultures and weather, dependent on the location and time of year.


Be sure to check out the travel risk map prior to your travels to see what countries are most safe and most dangerous so you can plan accordingly. The map is updated daily, so you will always be up-to-date with world events.

Avoid the Crowds with a Second-City Honeymoon

Second-city travel is one of the hottest trends of 2020. It involves avoiding the over-crowded, over-touristed cities that are historically top travel destinations and visiting nearby, lesser-known destinations instead. Travelers are learning that, while well-known destinations are popular for a reason, less-popular cities also have plenty to offer with fewer crowds and cheaper costs.
