Travel Recon Celebrates the World Cup by Offering Free Month of Service to New Customers

Travel Recon, an Online Provider of Security and Safety Information for International Travelers, Is Celebrating the World Cup Finals in Brazil by Offering New Customers a Free Month of Service When They Sign Up During the World Cup; The Company Uses the Latest Data Technology and Practical Analysis by Trained and Experienced Security Professionals to Provide Practical Security Information to International Travelers so They Can Travel With Peace of Mind

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - July 07, 2014) - Travel Recon, an online travel security company, is offering new customers one month of free service when they sign up for the company's subscription plan during the World Cup. The company's use of leading edge technology allows citizens to access government quality intelligence, giving them the tailored information they need to travel safely through foreign destinations.

"We know that the World Cup inspires many people to travel internationally, and they need the kind of information that we have while they are out there," Houchens said. "Giving new customers a free month of service allows them to try out our travel safety program for themselves and discover everything that it can do for them."

Houchens started the company as a way to provide practical safety and security information to international travelers. While government travelers and some corporate executives often had this information at hand, it wasn't readily available to everyone. The company wants to become an effective and affordable solution for all international travelers seeking practical travel security intelligence.

"Most people were told to check with the State Department before they traveled, and that was it," said Houchens. "That's good advice, but it certainly isn't enough."

Travel Recon offers travelers information at a city level, letting them know about high-crime neighborhoods, methods of travel to avoid within a city or country, threat vulnerability of tourist destinations, and updating them on new threats or security concerns that may arise while they are traveling. They gather the information through data aggregation and big data technology, analyzed by a staff of security experts.

The company will be adding to their offerings soon, giving subscribers access to their predictive analytics, interactive destination threat maps, and a Travel Scout program that allows registered users to report threats and other events to Travel Recon for social coverage. Information on new destinations is being added all the time, based on the most traveled places.

Travel Recon believes that many new customers will take advantage of their offer to get one month of service free during the World Cup. Travel recon also offers free security reports, advice, updates, and other content free just for becoming a registered user.
