Emergency assistance for international travellers via new app
A new travel safety app that connects travellers with overseas emergency services and embassies at the touch of a button, and can translate critical emergency questions into the local language, was unveiled at the launch of the Travel Aware App this week.
In the event of a terrorist attack, accident, natural disaster, or crime, Travel Aware provides international travellers with important emergency information, contacts for 2172 embassies worldwide, translations of key emergency phrases in over 200 languages, and secure storage of passport and insurance details.
Engineer and inventor Neil Wallace said, “The App has been in development for more than three years and the launch has been planned for months, however, the terrible situation with the recent terrorist attacks in Paris has highlighted how beneficial this app could be.”
Wherever in the world you plan to travel, the Travel Aware app is there to assist you in emergencies, locating nearest embassies and translation needs.
Leaving your country means leaving behind support systems, emergency service capabilities and medical facilities.
Wherever in the world you plan to travel, local laws and penalties, regardless of how harsh they may seem, apply to you.
Every year, hundreds and thousands of tourists are arrested overseas because of these strict laws.
The situation is traumatic, distressing and frightening not only for you but also for your family and friends back home.
If you find yourself sick and in need of medical care, Travel Aware® provides you access to emergency contact numbers for your destination.
If you find yourself a victim of a serious crime, Travel Aware will help you find the nearest police station.
Travel Aware communicates to you, in your language, and can direct you to the nearest emergency centre available.
