Home Cruise Safely The Safest Countries in the World

The safest countries in the world for health, terrorism, natural disasters and driving

Anxious holidaymakers should head to Norway or Finland for their next trip, according to a new map of travel risks around the world.

Produced by security specialists International SOS, the 2018 Travel Risk Map, below, charts threat levels across the globe in three categories – medical, security and road safety.

Across the trio of risks, a number of countries present low levels of concern for each, making them appealing destinations for anyone nervous about their plans. Norway, Sweden and Finland, as well as much of western Europe ranks “low” for medical concern, as does the US and Canada and Australia.

 The Scandinavian countries also perform well for road safety, possessing a “very low” risk of a road traffic accident. Within Europe, Italy, Belgium and Portugal present the higher risk of “low”. For this category, much of Africa, the Middle East and south-east Asia is deemed to have a “high” or “very high” risk.

But it is in the security category that few countries acquire the lowest risk level. In Europe, the following rank an “insignificant” risk.
