Before booking a holiday, it’s important to do a lot of research into the location you’re travelling to.

HOTSPOT: Thailand has been named as the world’s riskiest travel destination

Shockingly, topping the list for the riskiest destination is Thailand, a popular hotspot among Brits. 

In fact, Thailand took 23% of travel insurance claims made in 2017. 

The FCO doesn’t advise against travel there, but it’s worth doing your research before exploring the idyllic beaches in the southeast Asian country. 

Julia Alpan, head of marketing at Endsleigh, said: “Thailand is a popular destination for holidaymakers and backpackers, so it’s no surprise to see it revealed as the most dangerous location in the world to visit.

“Travelling in a foreign country is exciting, but there can be risks involved, particularly when you’re not familiar with the destination.

“As well as staying safe, it’s important to do your research ahead of your trip to make sure you’re covered with the correct travel insurance.

“Your insurance company will be able to provide you with full details of what you will and won’t be covered for on your policy, so make sure you’re aware of the full terms before you travel.”
