Best security websites for travelers

These sites provide intelligence and advice about the world's hot spots.

Travel.state.gov is a service offered by the U.S. State Department. Though critics say its travel warnings can be “overly cautious,” the site is usually a good starting point.

Osac.gov is the home page for the Overseas Security Advisory Council, which weds State Department and private travel intel.

Asigroup.com is the site of the risk-management firm ASI Group, which provides travel intelligence to business travelers. Sign up for its free daily “Hot Spots” briefing.

Ipresscenter.com gives travelers “the skinny” on current foreign news by culling from online English-speaking newspapers.

Travellr.com is an online forum where  various globetrotters “volunteer their expertise” to help other travelers. If you have a question about security—“or almost any other topic”—Travellr’s nomads will offer answers and advice.
