Obviously, the safety of our travelers going abroad is always our first priority.
As for right now, we do not have any security or safety concerns regarding our athletes going to Europe, more specifically going to the respective destinations of your tour. There are no current threats towards these destinations and there haven’t been any reliable threats in the past. We certainly don’t expect that to change.
There is one golden safety rule we usually use when traveling the world. Check the US government website for travel alerts, which tells you exactly what places in the world are safe to go to and what places are not. Current travel alert: http://travel.state.gov/
“As we all know, terrorist attacks can and unfortunately do happen anywhere in the world at any given time – Boston, Los Angeles, Paris, Brussels, Ankara, Beirut and most recently Las Vegas. All we can do is to live our lives as normal as we can and be more vigilant. We must make sure we don’t give into the fear the terrorists want to instill into us, because only then they will prevail.” Chad Wilkinson – President AIST.
