HENDERSON, Nev., Dec. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Travel alerts and warnings issued by the U.S. Department of State are not uncommon, however, this latest alert is of concern to many, due to its size. Not restricted to one particular area, the alert is a warning to travelers around the globe. Pristine Agency reviews this latest alert and what it means for travelers.
The alert can be found on the U.S. Department of State's website at travel.state.gov. It warns U.S. citizens of possible risks of travel due to "increased terrorist threats". This alert was issued after the most recent attacks on Paris that killed over 130 and injured hundreds more. Now, in an effort to keep travelers informed, this alert serves as a reminder that attacks can happen anywhere.
Despite these attacks and possible threats, life goes on and millions continue to travel safely and without incident. As travelers, it is our job to be vigilant no matter where we travel or what the circumstances. Even now, travel can be both safe and enjoyable in the U.S. U.S. citizens who decide to travel are advised to:
- Be vigilant in public places or when using public transportation
- Pay attention to surroundings
- Avoid large crowds
- Be especially cautious during the holiday season especially at large public events
- Anyone who sees something suspicious is advised to contact the authorities
- Register with STEP or Smart Traveler Enrollment Program
Note: The U.S. has recently announced that it will tighten travel restrictions on those who travel to countries under the Visa Waiver Program.
While these and other warnings and alerts may seem alarming, in most cases, there is no reason to cancel holiday travel plans.
