Travel Safety

Insurance companies and organisations operating in risk management, safeguarding, travel safety and child protection are represented by the Travel Safety Sector Panel. Nevertheless, safety concerns all aspects of the youth travel sector. For this reason, the Travel Safety Panel works closely with the Accommodation, Cultural Exchange and Study Abroad Sector Panels to improve sector-specific safety and security policies.




Provide business opportunities for members to meet with new insurance providers and organisations working within the risk management, safeguarding and child protection sectors via industry events.


Help members to improve their safety and security policies by collecting valuable data on both consumer and business trends and producing research reports to guide members towards the right strategic decisions when it comes to safeguarding, risk management, insurance and child protection.


Inform and educate members about the latest issues and trends regarding safety and security in youth travel, sharing best practice and policies in child protection and safeguarding.


Help members to reach a uniform level on safeguarding, risk management, insurance and child protection policies, providing toolkits and addressing industry issues on behalf of members.
