TRAVEL BODYGUARD SERVICES FOR FREQUENT TRAVELERS
Traveling around the world has never been easier and more available than in the last decade. Airfares reduced significantly, well-known destinations became mainstream, and new jet-set destinations have arisen. The choice of traveling methods and destinations has never been so wide. Until the pandemic put the entire world, including our travel bodyguard services, to a halt.
Traveling to unfamiliar places keeps you on your toes. You will probably investigate the local culture, check the weather forecast, learn a few foreign words, and book accommodation and transportation with credentials. If these are unknown, you can turn to a travel agency and security firm to let them help you.
When you are a seasoned traveler planning to go to a familiar destination, you will rely on your previous experiences. Yet, this may just be a disadvantage. It could lead to situations where you are less focused on the risks. For example, you could assume that conditions in a certain country are unchanged. You could end up in a violent demonstration or a nasty storm if you fail to check the latest news. Also, pickpocketers and scammers target less observant travelers for their gain.
Risk assessment and personal security preparation are always necessary for business and leisure travel. Infinite Risks can help you arrange safe transportation, inquire about the imposing restrictions for your destination, and make the required arrangements. As a professional security company, we also include assessing any other threats, such as terrorist attacks, natural disasters, political unrest, etc.
Below, you can find a few examples of travel security services we can offer our clients.
A TRAVEL BODYGUARD FOR:
Politicians and diplomats
Work-related travels as a politician, ambassador or diplomat means that meetings and visiting projects, for example, require a specific risk assessment. Depending on the destination, a person may wish for a personal bodyguard, safe transportation, or residential security when traveling to areas with a high-risk or countries with a controversial leader. If personal protective services are not explicitly required, pre-travel assessment, travel advice, or travel safety training may suffice.
In our article about Diplomatic Security Services, you can find further details about our experience and know-how on keeping diplomats and politicians safe.
Under the term business executives, we include chairpersons, CEOs, senior managers, etc., who need to travel for a.o. meetings, trade shows, and product launches. In some cases, the country a business person travels to is not accustomed to the Western way of doing business. Other reasons to hire executive protection are when you need to keep a low profile or when secrecy is required. Aside from the bodyguard service or a security driver, event security or operating as a covert executive protection officer may be beneficial to your goal.
Media teams traveling abroad to cover the news, travel to the harshest and most dangerous areas. It requires specific planning and measures to keep the crew safe. Besides taking a bodyguard or close protection officer with you as someone who protects the team during the full trip, also pre-travel assessment, travel preparation advice and safety training, or a professional company who acts as your emergency response team to help you with crisis management will be the appropriate personal protection measures for your team.
Ultra-high-net-worth individuals are known to plan ahead carefully and leave nothing to chance. Infinite Risks understands that keeping a low profile for you and your family (especially in the case of public figures) requires making arrangements discreetly, whether it concerns travel plans, accommodation, or fun activities abroad, such as visiting a sports game or show and holidays destinations, e.g., a skiing holiday. Our personal security personnel can accompany high-profile clients on international flights and have extended skills, such as horseback riding, skiing, diving and survival. They can accompany you on your adventures.
We will go more deeply into the level of protection required for UHNWIs in this separate blog.
