    Accident in Prague?

    The Czech Republic’s first city has enjoyed a tourism boom in the last decade. Since its accession to the EU the Czech Republic has become a popular tourist destination for all types of holiday makers, and its cheap alcohol prices and lax drinking laws combined with an amazing nightlife scene have meant it has become a haven for those who wish to celebrate stag dos. Here is Accident Advice Helpline’s guide to staying safe in Prague and avoiding any accidents on holiday.

    The emergency services number

    Due to being a large city and with quite a large tourism sector, many people in Prague speak very good English and this can be helpful in the case of an accident. If you need to contact the emergency services for any reason, you can contact them on the following numbers:

    150 – Fire brigade

    155 – Ambulance

    156 – Metropolitan police

    Open Claim Calculator

    158 – Police

    An important number to note is the European emergency number 112 for which calls can be taken in a number of languages, including English. 112 calls are usually answered within 1 second and can be dialled even without the use of a sim card.

    Travel insurance

    The Czech Republic is a member of the European Union and thus if you bring your EHIC with you, you can make use of the services on offer, should an accident occur. You may have to pay for some services upfront but these charges may be reimbursed depending on the type of travel insurance you have selected.

    Take note of the embassy address

    If you need help with any consular matters, for example losing a passport, it is important to contact the British embassy in Prague tor receive help. The British embassy in Prague can be found at: Thunovska 14
    118 00
    Prague 1
    Czech Republic

    Be wary of pickpockets

    Unfortunately, Prague has quite a large problem with pick-pocketing. Often gangs will use groups of children in order to distract tourists whilst they make off with their valuables. It’s important to be vigilant at all times in Prague, if you think you have had your pocket picked you should report it immediately to the emergency services. Keep all valuables locked away if possible.

    Remember, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to pursue a claim for compensation even if the accident happened while abroad. Our lines are open 24/7 on 0800 689 0500, so give us a call today.
