Greece Among Safest Destination Countries in 2019, Says IPK Survey
Thirty-eight percent of international travelers currently claim that political instability and terror threats will have an influence on their travel planning for 2019, according to IPK International CEO Rolf Freitag.
“Destinations with a good safety image will once again take more advantage,” Freitag said while presenting the findings of IPK’s World travel Monitor, on Wednesday during the first day of the ITB Berlin 2019 exhibition.
According to IPK’s World travel Monitor, travelers from Asia feel a lot more impacted by terror threats than travelers from other continents.
In terms of what kind of influence terror threats will have on the travel behavior, the great majority states that they will choose only destinations, which they perceive as “safe”. According to the survey, the safety image of most destinations slightly improved over the last 12 months – also for Turkey, Israel and Egypt.
Greece: Safe and outperforming destination
Greece is on the list of the 20 safest destination countries in the mind of global outbound travelers and according to Freitag, the country can take alot of advantage from that.
IPK’s World travel Monitor also showed that Greece was among the top 10 outperforming destinations in 2018.
