Business Traveller

Keeping you safe and connected, no matter where your work takes you

When travelling for work, your own personal safety can understandably be the last thing on your mind. You’re rightly focused on closing that deal or making that critical connection.

Nobody expects the worst to happen on a routine business trip – and for the most part it doesn’t. But nightmare scenarios such as extreme weather, civil unrest and even street crime are out of your control. If they do occur, you can be left isolated, further at risk and potentially terrified. Your travel insurance covers you for medical emergencies only, but it is unlikely to cover you if your safety is at risk from these kinds of traumatic incident.

CloseCircle picks up where travel insurance leaves off. It acts like a virtual bodyguard in your pocket to help prevent you ever getting into dangerous situations, but if you do, it also gives you instant access to emergency support and rescue… at no extra cost. It also allows you to track your family at any time of day or night, so that no matter how far away your work takes you, you can rest assured that they are safe.

real-LIFE STORIES

Civil unrest in Paris
In February 2018, a UK-based CloseCircle member, was attending a business meeting in Paris. The meeting overran meaning he had less time than planned to make it to the station to catch the Eurostar home to London.

He was anxious to make his planned train home so as not to be late to see his three children. He was unaware that during his meeting a public demonstration had started at the Champs Elysees, which closed some Metro stations and disrupted his planned route to the Eurostar station.

Luckily, he received an alert from CloseCircle as he finished his meeting which warned him about the demonstration and disruption to public transport near his current location. He was therefore able to plan a different route and made his train home in time to see his children.
Mugging in Mexico
In January 2017 our operations team responded to an emergency call to help three US nationals who had been attacked and robbed in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. They were left traumatised and vulnerable, without any travel documents.

We arranged for them to be collected in San Luis Potosi by a vetted protection officer, and driven swiftly and securely to the US Consulate in Guadalajara. Here, they were able to collect emergency travel documents, ahead of boarding an international flight home to the US.

At all times during the rescue and evacuation they were protected by trained security experts and incurred no extra costs to their trip whatsoever.
Cyclone in the South Pacific
February 2016 - Cyclone Winston, tore through the Pacific leaving dozens of people dead and tens of thousands homeless and without water. A European student undertaking fieldwork in Fiji was caught up in the devastation, sustaining several minor injuries and losing most of her possessions.

We immediately answered her emergency call for help, mobilising our global network of local security experts. We sent a male consultant and a female chaperone on a challenging journey over land and by air to reach the remote village where the student had taken shelter. On reaching our client they assessed her medical condition, and then escorted her across the archipelago, and safely onto an international flight home.

At all times we kept her family updated and her welfare our priority. At no extra cost, we kept our customer safe.
