“Despite recent terrorist attacks, business travellers say they’re more worried about other things – and that’s surprising,” said Simon Nowroz, Carlson Wagonlit Travel’s chief marketing officer. “We found that, yes, the world seems scarier at times – but travellers believe they have more tools at their disposal to keep them informed and safe.” Terrorism only ranks fifth (35 percent) among safety concerns, despite the high visibility of terrorist attacks. “Forgetting something needed for work” ranked higher (40 percent), as did “losing something important” (38 percent), “being robbed or attacked” (37 percent) – and even “weather conditions” (37 percent). The CWT Connected traveller survey of more than 1,900 individuals found that two-thirds (67 percent) of business travellers believe travel is safer today than in the past, as they have more tools to mitigate safety concerns.

And more than two-thirds (68percent) buy travel insurance. Get the full story at Travel Daily Asia
