Our Flock

Our small team has extensive experience working in travel safety, including in some of the most dangerous parts of the world.


The founder of Starling Safety has been helping people work in war zones for over 12 years. During that time he advised journalists caught up in terrorist attacks in Asia and the Middle East, helped evacuate clients from revolutions in Africa and worked to free victims held in hostage situations in crime hotspots ranging from Latin America to the Indian Ocean.

Our other partners, advisors and contributors range from security specialists, former police officers and military personnel to aid workers, tour guides and hoteliers, giving the site professional and reliable insight, with trust-based collaboration from well-meaning travellers who want to help make the world a better place for everyone.

Our Community
We have several hundred contributors providing advice and insight on locations around the world. Our users include experienced travellers, expatriates, academic specialists and local residents, all of whom have helpful hints and sensible advice to share with other travellers.

Our users are based in all manner of locations, ranging from downtown Manhattan to the Himalayas, with everything in between. Some of them live in suburbia, some of them live in war zones, at least two of them live on a boat, but it doesn’t really matter where you live or what you do, you can at least tell us about the area around you. It’s somewhere you know and it won’t be familiar to everyone, so sign up, share what you know and gain access to advice on information on locations around the world – for free.
