Holidays under the sun are undeniably inspiring for many holidaymakers, and there’s a lot to look forward to when flying off to foreign shores. However, how safe is the holiday destination? Right before the Covid-19 outbreak in Europe, a French travel cover company rated Cyprus the fifth safest country to go to in 2020. Adding that Cyprus continues to be hailed as one of the top-performing countries in Europe in handling the COVID-19 outbreak, we suspect that rating must only improve through the Summer.
The holiday season is a time of fun and relaxation for most people as well as a chance to place worries behind you. However, there are always worries about something going wrong. Terrorism, disasters and crime are simply three from the major concerns for globetrotters, and now we also have the pandemic.
Fortunately, some destinations tend to be safer than others.
French travel cover company Insurly has according to an article from Feb 24th that appeared in express.co.uk identified the 10 safest countries for 2020.
Insurly collected data on disasters, transport, the calibre of healthcare systems and amounts of violent crime and terrorist threat.
Countries were rated from to 100 – so the safest country on the planet at this time?
The travel cover company revealed the 10 safest countries, with several countries from Europe making the list.
Switzerland topped the safest country in the world for 2020 list with a score of 93.4 out of 100
“Excellent healthcare systems, hardly any violence and incredibly little transport occurrences” were reasons listed for the rating.
In second place was Singapore having a score of 92.7 from 100.
Insurly described Singapore as “ideal” for vacationers.
There’s hardly any violence in Singapore therefore it scores well when it comes to security.
Actually, the travel cover company highlighted that could rank first whether it was having a higher quality of air – which remains its one weak spot.
Norway was rated the third safest country on the planet this season having a score of 91.1.
Nordic countries frequently gain a high position with regards to global security and safety, but Norway was listed as the best all.
Following way came Luxembourg and Cyprus in 4th and fifth place...
Finishing the top 10 list were: Iceland, Denmark, Portugal, Finland and Japan.
Public beaches in Cyprus open up on the 1st of June, 2020.
