A family holiday should be safe, fun and relaxing. We’ve identified the safest countries in the world to travel to in 2024.
Stepping out of your comfort zone is one thing, but losing sight of it entirely is another. Travel is adventurous – and that’s what we love about it – but this shouldn’t come at the cost of your safety. Security is a top priority for many when overseas, especially those travelling with children or family. In a world where global instability and unpredictability are the new norms, knowing the safest countries in the world is as crucial as ever.
To help you narrow down your choices, we’ve curated a list of the world’s safest countries based on recent data-driven insights from several sources. These include the Global Peace Index (an annual ranking of 163 independent states and territories based on a range of safety indicators), the International SOS Risk Map 2024 and Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection’s (BHTP) State of Travel Insurance report.
