Switzerland has been voted as the safest country for travellers in 2020 as per the policy developed by Insurly (a travel insurance comparison website) for its 2020 Ranking of the World’s Safest Countries. The data was collected on several parameters including the regularity of natural disasters, the value of healthcare systems and levels of violent crime and terrorist threat.
The country got an overall score of 93.4 out of 100. This means that the travellers can be confident of Switzerland’s excellent score for transport risks (98 out of 100). In the evaluation, the firm took four standards into consideration, the annual number of travellers killed or injured on roads as well as the prevalence of airlines on the European Commission’s blacklist.
In third place is Norway, which got an overall score of 91.1 out of 100. The magnificent Scandinavian country could have won the first spot easily had there not been the risks of violence (75 out of 100, as opposed to 98 for 100 transport risks, and 95 out of 100 for health care).
In the list, the three destinations at the bottom that are believed riskiest for travellers were South Sudan (with a complete score of 14.8), the Democratic Republic of Congo (with a complete score of 15.4) and the Central African Republic (with a complete score of 21).
