VIDEC rolls out safe travel barometer

Advisory and analytics firm VIDEC has launched the Safe Travel Barometer, an interactive dashboard that charts the Covid-19 health and safety initiatives of over 100 travel companies worldwide as part of efforts to restore consumer confidence.

The free-to-use dashboard includes the latest updates of various safety measures for travellers rolled out by the companies, with more than 100 entries across airlines, hotels, cruises, airports, and amusement parks.

Virendra Jain, co-founder and CEO, VIDEC, said: “Covid-19 has changed how we travel. Traveller health and safety measures are at the heart of our new normal, but it is also a complex maze.

“The Safe Travel Barometer is an independent dashboard of the initiatives announced and enacted by various companies and destinations, applicable to both travellers and the industry.

“It is heartening to see the industry implement traveller safety measures, even as they may vary widely by categories, and often within the same market! Having an overarching view of the implemented measures is essential for our industry to revive traveller confidence and regain trust.”

Travel companies are invited to submit their own related entries via Microsoft Forms to be included in the Safe Travel Barometer.
