When it comes to international travel, forewarned is forearmed.
There are a number of sites and apps that can give you cutting edge information about current risk conditions before you ever leave home.
PhoneTrack is an app that allows you to register your location and send panic alerts if you need to. It also doubles as a medical travel aid, and you can request assistance during medical emergencies.
GoRecon uses intelligence data as well as real time information reported by other travelers to keep you informed on the road.
Sitata also allows you to report events that you either witness or experience anywhere in the world. The app also lists closest hospitals and emergency numbers.
Finally, there’s CloseCircle. It’s an app that got started in London. It sends safety and situation alerts based on your current location.
