Travo Summit: Travel Navigator introduces real-time safety app

Travel Navigator™ has introduced “Venture”, an initiative that will provide provide users with real-time safety information on destinations.

Chief executive Robin Ingle told delegates at the Travolution European Summit that the new app will feature content from Robert Young Pelton, author of The World’s Most Dangerous Places.

It can provide personalised risk ratings, data visualisations, a gateway for third-party integration and mapping of medical and other facilities.

The aim is to drive actionable security and safety information to users via their mobile devices.

He said: “With the advent of Airbnb you can end up with an executive staying in a location that’s not safe.

“People are more afraid of flying in a plane than walking down the street and being hit by a car, which is more likely to happen.

“The world is a safe place. The odds of an individual tourist being affected by terrorism is small,” Ingle stressed. But he added: “It’s not about making people afraid but giving people real information.”
