It is a well-known fact that US citizens like to travel, they are known for being vacation lovers and adventurers, and you can find them at any airport in the world.
That’s the reason why the best online travel booking sites and travel insurance brokers compete to provide the most convenient air travel experience and cheap travel insurance.
Also, banks provide their best offers for international credit cards so that travelers from the US won’t have any money-related issues in their travel destinations. Airlines’ offers are also getting more and more suitable with cheaper long-haul flights and the ability to carry more baggage.
BHTP are travel insurance providers who conducted a survey in which they asked 2000 American consumers about the safest countries that they had visited. The survey also took into consideration the State Department’s safety rating, the rate of crimes in each country, threats of terrorist attacks and social welfare.
After analyzing the data, they concluded that Ireland is the safest country for American visitors. In the final results, 7 out of the 10 safest traveling destinations are located in Europe, while 2 are for islands lovers, and 1 is in the South Pacific.
The survey made a scoring system based on the responses of the participants as well as the “Global Peace Index” rating established by the Institute for Economics and Peace.
