Risk treatment in travel and tourism is the process in which organisations, destinations and tourism businesses identify, select, and deploy measures that aim to influence the likelihood of occurrence or the impact of a risk. This process follows the stage of risk assessment in the risk management cycle. All risks do not carry the same prospect of loss or damage and, in some cases, taking a risk may lead to considerable rewards. In general, the risk treatment strategies available to the management of an organisation are classified into four broad groups: Avoidance; Mitigation; Acceptance; and Transfer (AMAT).
