Emergencies will occur at any time and in any place arising from specific local issues or common risks. When they happen during international trips executives often find themselves struggling with basic needs easily secured back home; identification, medication and medical care, emergency funds, reliable communication and essential information. Delays or failures in finding contingencies can compromise the trip or endanger the traveler.
Mitigating travel risk relies on fundamental awareness of hazards common and specific, advance identification of solutions and contingencies, and the timely review and update of both. Modest preparation and adherence to best practices minimizes or eliminates some of the most common issues that jeopardize travel objectives.

- The more common business travel incidents and what employer and employees should do to prepare for international business travel, no matter the location.
- Common medical misconceptions international business travelers should be aware of.
