VIP Protection Services While Travelling

Much of a bodyguard’s time is spent travelling with their designated VIP. Bodyguards are employed to ensure the person in question gets to each of their destinations safely. This is particularly important when travelling with a politically influential VIP in a country where there may be political unrest, a celebrity hounded by fans and paparazzi or any VIP in a new and foreign place.

VIP protection services train their bodyguards to deal with any situation that may arise, anywhere and at any time. Here are some things you should look for in your well-trained VIP protection bodyguard.

Flight over Fight


This may seem counter intuitive if you have been watching Action Blockbusters, but this is an important reality. The initial reaction of a VIP bodyguard must be to remove the individual being protected from the potentially dangerous situation. The first step in this process is to remove the VIP from the area of immediate danger before taking other steps.

This may mean getting in a car and speeding off, as this is a safer option than waiting to see if you can take on the threat. Flight is safer and will do the job VIP protection services are hired for in the first place: keep the VIP safe and away from harm.

They Must be Ever-vigilant


Before a dangerous situation arises, a bodyguard must situate himself for the flight protocol to be effective. This involves taking note of all exits and familiarising themselves with their surroundings. Bodyguards must take note of the people and activities around them while travelling and remain aware of the best direction to move in should the situation become threatening.

First Aid Training


A bodyguard should be fully trained in first aid. This means that whether you are hiking in Peru and the VIP twists his ankle or gets stabbed in the streets of Europe the bodyguard must stay calm and apply their training. This can mean the difference between life and death. Being first aid trained means the bodyguard will remain calm under pressure in such a way that they can stabilise the VIP while escaping and removing them from the dangerous situation.
