Where in the world you are most likely to get robbed, raped or assaulted

The world’s most dangerous travel destinations are revealed as countries are rated by the number of assaults and attacks on British citizens.

Safer Tourism Foundation’s danger index looked at the number of rapes, assaults and thefts reported to the FCDO in 2018.  And it is no surprise to discover that the places British travellers visit most often are where the highest number of incidents occur.

Should this stop you travelling?  Certainly not.  But wherever you are visiting, we hope you will think carefully about your own personal safety.

And if you are a victim of crime while on holiday, our guide tells you all you need to know about reporting a crime abroad.
