Accident in Berlin?

As the cultural hub of continental Europe, Berlin is a popular tourist destination for those wishing to get away from it all. As a city of great historical significance with an electrifying night life, Berlin appeals to be all. Whether it’s for a stag do, a relaxing getaway, or a cultural learning experience, you can be sure Berlin has something to offer you. But what happens when that dream getaway in Germany’s premier city goes awry? Here, Accident Advice Helpline examines what you should do if you are involved in an accident on holiday in Berlin.

Report the accident as soon as possible

An important number to remember is 110, the German emergency services number in case you need to contact the police, ambulance, or fire service. It is extremely advantageous that many in Berlin speak fluent English, or at least can get by in conversation, eliminating the stress of learning another language.

Make sure you have adequate travel insurance

Germany is a member of the EU, but does not have the same public health system that we enjoy in the United Kingdom, and if you do not have adequate travel insurance, then medical treatment can be extremely costly. Choose the correct level of travel insurance for you and any travelling companions. Make sure to bring your EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) with you, in case you have an accident whilst in Germany. You may need to pay for any medical treatment upfront which will be reimbursed to you through your travel insurance.

Take care of any valuables

Berlin is, relatively speaking, a very safe city, but like any major city, crime is still a problem. It is important to take care of any valuables that you might bring with you. If your accommodation offers a safety deposit box then it may be worthwhile to consider using it.

Visit the embassy

The United Kingdom has an embassy in Berlin and you should visit the embassy if you need consular advice. The British embassy can be found at Wilhelm Straße 70-71 10117, Berlin.

If you have plans to travel to Berlin in the near future or are considering travelling to Berlin, observe the above information to make sure you have an accident free trip. Accident Advice Helpline wishes you a pleasant journey to one of Europe’s most exciting cities.
