2014 was an excellent year for travel – World Travel Monitor.

Despite escalating conflicts across the world, several airplane crashes and global moderate economic development, 2014 was an excellent year for travel with an increase of 4.7% in international trips,
according to figures of the World Travel Monitor revealed at the ITB on last week Wednesday.

Considering 2014 from a security-point of view it was a glim year, said Rolf D. Freitag, Ceo and founder of tourism consultancy firm IPK International which publishes the World Travel Monitor since 1988 each year.The number of safe travel destinations decreased over the world. Only three countries in the Americas, one in Africa and seven in Asia/Pacific were regarded as safe, according to the latest RiskMap Report.
