Many factors play a role in travel planning - including safety. Now, a new report provides an overview of the safest travel destinations in 2024.

December 27, 2023

For the ninth time in a row, the insurance company Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection has published its annual safety report. On the one hand, the individual perception of travelers was evaluated. Especially if they belong to an underrepresented group. And on the other hand, measurable factors such as data from the Global Peace Index or GeoSure evaluations. The study has now identified the following countries as the five safest travel destinations in 2024:

5: Netherlands

When you think of a vacation in the Netherlands, images of blossoming tulip fields automatically come to your mind. But the canals of Amsterdam or the port of Rotterdam also promise a varied break. Numerous beaches, small cafés and interesting cafés invite you to relax and unwind. And you can do that here with a clear conscience. After all, the Netherlands is considered one of the five safest travel destinations in 2024, at least if you believe the BHTP report. Of course, it's advisable to stay alert in the larger cities and keep an eye on your valuables.

Rugged, impressive nature, people who are deeply connected to traditions and the belief in ubiquitous fairies and leprechauns: You simply have to love Ireland. The country and its people never fail to impress. And 4th place on the list of the safest travel destinations in 2024 also speaks for a trip. Of course, cities such as Dublin and breathtaking natural spectacles such as the Cliffs of Moher are a must visit. Celtic history can be experienced along the Ring of Kerry and typical Irish hospitality in one of the many pubs.

Deep fjords, moors, lakes and islands, as well as waterfalls, forests and plateaus, rare animals and almost magical phenomena such as the Northern Lights and the midnight sun add to the magic of a trip to Norway. While you can enjoy a lively art scene in Oslo, Bergen's Bryggen harbor district attracts visitors with its unique medieval quarter. Active travelers, on the other hand, can enjoy kayaking, skiing, surfing or hiking. Norway is considered a safe destination, even for solo travelers.

Second place on the list of the safest travel destinations in 2024 comes as no surprise. After all, Switzerland's impeccable reputation precedes it. During the warm months, you can enjoy hiking, visiting impressive lakes or small cities such as Zurich, Bern, Basel or Lausanne. And in winter, you can enjoy yourself on the ski slopes of Zermatt or St. Moritz. Luxurious hotels, sophisticated boutiques and excellent restaurants bring international flair to this small country.

Canada has a relatively low crime rate, a stable political climate, a high individual sense of security among travelers, even if they belong to a minority: All of this contributes to Canada making it to number one of the safest travel destinations in 2024. Nature, vastness and tranquillity are probably the best words to describe this outdoor paradise. Diverse landscapes and varied flora and fauna are just as attractive as friendly residents and large cities. For example Vancouver, Toronto or Montreal.
