York Charity launches travel safety app

An innovative new app that is aimed at keeping travellers safe has just been released by a York-based charity set up in memory of murdered backpacker, Caroline Stuttle.

Caroline was a 19-year-old student from York who was robbed and pushed off a bridge in Bundaberg, Australia, in April 2002.

The brand new app was created by The Caroline’s Rainbow Foundation. Rather fantastically, the app provides safety advice and city information for more than 250 countries.

CRF founder and director Richard Stuttle told the BBC: “The app will be a useful tool for travellers in their adventures by providing more information about the destinations to which they travel. We feel that through knowledge and raised awareness come safety and happy travels. Our main aim is to provide information that allows users to make informed choices and ultimately to stay safe.”

You can download on iPhone and iPad now – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/safer-travel/id715682655?mt=8
