It’s potentially an understatement to say that it’s a crazy world we live in, and unfortunately, with craziness comes safety concerns.


Whether it be horrendous political unrest, climate change causing random weather or terrorist threats, it’s important as a travel booker to know not only where you are sending your travellers, but also where they are at any given time.


One of the perks of booking with a travel management company is that they should be able to offer you a Duty of Care platform that comes with travel alerts, risk assessments and sometimes a mapping ability that can show you where in the world your travellers are in real time.


Apart from the legal obligations to provide this, it’s just good business sense, especially if you have a large number of travellers in your company. Let’s say, for example, there is a tornado warning in Florida and you have clients in that area. It’s fair to assume that you could potentially have travellers there and you need to check that they are safe, but how do you know who is out there?


With a live tracking system, you can check the world map to see who is there, who is scheduled to fly there and who is currently flying back. Not only this, a good duty of care system will also alert you to this anyway.


On top of that, weekly updates into worldwide travel destinations allow you to arrange your trips and meetings in line with potential travel .


And that’s the keyword there: Safety (as highlighted by our picture of the very safe man there on the left). Ensuring your travellers are safe is the most important thing, and that’s why making sure you have the best kind of duty of care system is vital.
