- Switzerland is the most secure nation in the world for lone travelers, according to the survey.
- Only one African nation, Rwanda, made the top 10.
According to a recent survey, Rwanda is the sixth-safest nation in the world for solo travelers.
Usebounce.com, a luggage storage app for finding and booking left luggage & lockers, stated that it based the ranking on two factors: the score of the crime index, and the score of the security index. This indicates that when one gets ready to travel alone, one of the most important factors to consider is the safety of the country they are going to.
According to the index ranking, European nations dominated the list, with the only Asian and African nations to make the top 10 being Rwanda and Japan.
The safest nation for solo travelers is Switzerland, which scored 21.7 on the crime index and 78.3 on the security index. Slovenia (crime index: 22.3; security index: 77.7) and Japan were the next safest countries (crime index: 22.4; security index: 77.7).
The top 10 list of the safest nations for solo travelers is completed by Georgia, Iceland, Rwanda, Croatia, Czech Republic, Austria, and Denmark.
By creating capable and experienced security organs, Rwanda has made significant efforts to ensure the security and safety of the nation’s borders. According to the 2018 Gallup Global Law and Order report, the East African nation was ranked as the second safest in Africa, with 83% of citizens having faith in their local police force. According to Gallup’s Law and Order Index from the previous year, Rwanda was also one of the safest nations in the world for people to walk alone at night.
