If you operate a food truck, you understand the importance of safe travels every day on the job. Of course there are many careers that require safe driving from truckers to Amazon drivers, and home services like plumbers or nurses.

Traveling to new places can be filled with uncertainty and, sometimes, danger. We often hear sad stories of travelers having bad experiences—from the inconveniences of delayed or canceled flights or accidents in the country they’re visiting even if those examples are rare.

If you have a loved one, friend, or colleague traveling to a new destination, send them messages to be safe and to take care of themselves while they’re away from home. Here are some genuine message examples that you can send by email, text, or handwritten note.
