Pilgrims Group reports increased interest in 'Travelling Smart'

Global risk management experts Pilgrims has reported increased awareness from holiday, gap year and business travellers when it comes to the importance of safety and security preparations.

Pilgrims’ experts are sharing their knowledge gained from trained backgrounds such as the Special Forces with all safety conscious travellers, providing tailor-made courses, such as Gap Year Safety™, Travel Med™, Staying Alive™, Hostile Environment and Business Traveller, to equip individuals with potentially life-saving knowledge, including practical tips and advice as to how to stay safe when travelling - and what to do should things go wrong.

The company shared invaluable advice with anyone planning to embark on a trip or adventure holiday at the Adventure Travel Live show held in London this January and reported a definite rise in the understanding of both public and business travellers in the importance of preparing to ensure travel safety.

Pilgrims’ travel safety demonstrations and presentations pulled hundreds of interested travellers seeking skills and advice. “The presentation and interest at the event shows people of all ages are now starting to take travel safety seriously and are aware that planning and having the right procedures and back ups in place for their trips could be vital,” Pilgrims’ Training Manager, Sam Mostyn, explains.
