Editors Note: There is an infographic associated with this press release.

Surveying more than 3,000 travellers revealed that less than 35% of travellers believe they know how to protect themselves from emergencies while abroad. Even less (28%) believe they would know what to do if faced with an emergency while abroad. Travel experts at FlightNetwork.com created the Ultimate Canadian Travel Safety Guide to help inform and prepare travellers before they leave Canada.

"Planning a trip can be overwhelming. There are a lot of details to remember," says Neil Bhapkar, Chief Marketing Officer at Flight Network. "We want to remind travellers of all the necessary precautions to take to prevent safety issues from arising."

Canadians are travelling abroad more often, whether for work or for leisure. Flight Network wishes to remind Canadians that no travel plans are complete without safety precautions. Stay connected to Canada through the Registration of Canadians Abroad, reading any government-issued travel advisories, and researching the local contact number for emergency services are listed among the 20 safety precautions.

"While there will always be risks when travelling, we've done our best to prepare Canadians for safe travel," says Bhapkar. "Our hope is that travellers will be able to enjoy a trouble-free trip with the help of the safety guide."

Flight Network encourages all travellers to prepare and expect the unexpected. To find out how you can prepare and prevent travel emergencies, visit www.flightnetwork.com/blog/ultimate-travel-safety-guide/.
