Rankings of Safest Countries For Travel

The safest countries for tourism and travel have been rated out of 10.

These rankings are based on crime/homicide rates and drugs and crime, likelihood of terrorism and terrorism casualties, police force effectiveness, costs of security within the country on business, reliability of protection services, rates of property crime and violence. Dangers can lurk in any city, park or town and being a safe vacationer means paying attention and keeping yourself out of harms way. Crimes and violence can happen in the lowest rated country just as crimes and violence could happen in the safest rated country so these figures should only be used as a guide to help compare a safe travel destination.

Always use caution when exploring unknown places and when meeting unknown people and use your inner instinct and listen to your gut whenever you travel.
