Thought Travel Safe was only for travellers… Think again!
The following article outlines the very real and potentially fatal issue facing emergency services in Australia. The issue is that they are unable to determine your location if you make a call to emergency services from a mobile phone. This is something we made sure to address when developing Travel Safe. When you make an emergency call with Travel Safe, your location is displayed at the top of the call screen, even when your phone only has SOS service. This allows you to easily inform the emergency call centre of your location and perhaps be the difference between life and death.

Nana Nana Nana Nanaaa Top Ten!!!
Travel Safe has made it’s first Top Ten appearance on the App Store, in the Travel section for Australia. Great news! Big thanks to everyone who has downloaded our app so far.
We’re aiming for a top 100 overall. The only way to do that is more downloads and more reviews. So if you like our app leave feedback and tell your friends.
(Did anyone else get that the first line was the Batman theme or was it just me?)
We were going to go all out and create a flashy new ad for Travel Safe now that it’s been released on Google Play. Fortunately, the guys at CollegeHumor have provided us with a good framework to get us started.
Seriously funny stuff. Visit the site here (http://bit.ly/15rKMTN).

Let’s bring home the Golden Mobie!!
Not all those who wander are lost…
Although… if you’re planning a trip to Mordor, despite Travel Safe’s comprehensive database of emergency numbers and testing all over the globe, we did find it quite challenging to source any reliable emergency service details for anywhere east of The Shire.
I should add, if you’re interested in this awesome bag tag, we found it online at this website…
As you can see we’ve been doing a few updates to the webpage. We’ve now created a user guide to help you bring out all of the best features of Travel Safe.
As always, we’d love to hear your feedback on our app and any ideas you might have to help make Travel Safe the best possible emergency services app available. Find us on Facebook or send us an email by clicking the “Contact Us” tab above.
Enjoy your travels, and as always, Travel Safe.
