10 Surprising Risky Destinations - According to the State Department January 16 2018, 0 Comments
The U.S. Department of State recently assigned every country in the world a "travel safety rating". The safest places are ranked Level 1, while the places that Americans are advised to avoid are considered Level 4:
Many tourist-frequented countries were highlighted for travel safety concerns as Level 2, meaning Americans should “exercise increased caution” and “be aware of heightened risks to safety and security.” Many of the advisories stem from threats of terrorism, while others are due to crime or weather.
Surprising Countries with Level 2 Travel Safety Ratings
Here are some countries you might be surprised the State Department gave a lower travel safety rating to, and why the agency says you should exercise caution when visiting them.
“Exercise increased caution in Denmark due to terrorism,” the travel advisory states. “Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in Denmark. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning.”
“Exercise increased caution in Belize due to crime,” the travel advisory states. “Violent crime, such as sexual assault, armed robbery, and murder, is common. Local police lack the resources to respond effectively to serious criminal incidents.”
“Exercise increased caution in France due to terrorism,” the travel advisory states. “Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in France. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning.”
“Exercise increased caution in Antarctica due to environmental hazards posed by extreme and unpredictable weather,” the travel advisory states. “The U.S. government is unable to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in Antarctica.”
“Exercise increased caution in Italy due to terrorism,” the travel advisory states. “Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in Italy. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning.”
“Exercise increased caution in The Bahamas due to crime,” the travel advisory states. “Violent crime, such as burglaries, armed robberies, and sexual assault, is common, even during daylight hours and in tourist areas. U.S. government personnel are not permitted to visit the Sand Trap area in Nassau due to crime.”
The United Kingdom
“Exercise increased caution in the United Kingdom due to terrorism,” the travel advisory states. “There is also a risk of isolated violence by dissident groups in Northern Ireland, focused primarily on police and military targets.”
“Exercise increased caution in Germany due to terrorism,” the travel advisory states. “Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in Germany. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning.”
“Exercise increased caution in Maldives due to terrorism,” the travel advisory states. “Terrorist groups may conduct attacks with little or no warning … Attacks may occur on remote islands which could lengthen the response time of authorities.” For a more comprehensive guide on traveling to the Maldives, check out the 100 Best Things To Do in The Maldives.

Smart Travel Hoodie January 26 2017, 0 Comments
The Clever Travel Companion is pleased to introduce one of it's latest designs in innovative travel safety and practical wear: The new Travel Hoodie!
It's a cool, cozy, laid back jacket that will keep you warm and comfortable on an air conditioned plane or keep the sun off you on a cruise or city stroll. Packed full of generously sized pockets it also provides super practical uses; you could conceal your entire carry-on luggage in the hoodie alone and not compromise comfort in anyway - better still, no one would have any idea it was there!
The two upper inside zipper pockets are a conveniently placed, smaller quick access design for items like cash, keys, credit cards, cell phones or a passport; the kinds of items you might need to use quickly and regularly throughout the day. Having them hidden away but also readily available at chest height is super convenient and undeniably practical, there's also absolutely no chance any prying eyes (or hands) might find them and their contents.
The lower "cargo" pockets are designed to provide the same level of cover for your just as valuable but less readily required items. Think tablet, travel wallet, GoPro, notebook, sunglasses, medications and more. A large opening makes it easy to fill up and access your items and built in layers give the pockets the support they need to not drag or weigh you down when full - you'll hardly notice there's anything there and neither will anyone else!
So what are you waiting for! Pick-up your ultimate travel hoodie now. Currently available in Navy with white zipper and drawstrings as pictured above and in sizes XS-XXXL. The Clever Travel Companion is developing new colors and designs now!
