✈️ Do you want to empower travellers to book with confidence without leaving your platform? Our Alerts are perfect for providing corporate travellers with information of what is happening at a certain destination in real time. TMCs and Travel Agencies can keep travellers informed about any incidents that might affect the continuity of their trip when they are already at their destination.

What is an Alert?

Alerts are short reports of up to 600 characters that convey real-time situational awareness of incidents and events that have an actual or potential impact on travel itineraries and public safety. Each alert consists of essential intelligence, practical advice and precise geolocation.

When we are able to get advanced warnings, notices are also issued for events happening in the future.

Use cases

:globe-with-meridians: Security Risk Management companies can have access from their GSOC and be aware of risks potentially affecting their customers and assets and provide them with a better service based on accurate data

:round-pushpin: Our Alerts can also be integrated with traveller tracking solutions to ensure managers are given relevant information about what's happening where their employees are located.

:briefcase: Insurance companies can influence policyholder’s behaviour and reduce claims: as travellers are better informed of what is happening around them, they are more likely to make safer decisions and avoid risks.

Our data can also be integrated as a value-added service by providing pre-travel advice and risk alerts that keep customers updated wherever they are in the world.

:ambulance: For Assistance companies, being informed about on-the-ground situations is crucial for preparing and planning rescue operations. Our Alerts provide assistance companies with the information they need to monitor areas where crises are developing, so that they can then adjust their offering to that location and their resource planning accordingly.
