    Common accidents when island hopping in Greece


    The Greek Islands are a perennial high performer in the tourism stakes. Home to crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches and some of the best traditional restaurants in the world, it’’s no surprise that visitors flock here year on year. If you’’re planning on island hopping in Greece this summer, here are some tips to help you avoid travel accidents.

    Avoiding common accidents when island hopping in Greece

    Greece is a relatively safe country, but there is always a risk of holiday accidents, wherever you travel. If you’’re island hopping in Greece this summer, here are some of the most common accidents to try and avoid:

    • Road traffic accidents
    • Scooter and cycling accidents
    • Drowning and water-based accidents
    • Jet ski accidents
    • Food poisoning
    • Slips, trips and falls
    • Dehydration, sunstroke and sunburn

    Sometimes, it’’s impossible to avoid travel injuries, but often, using your common sense and adhering to safety measures can keep you safe. Here are some simple steps you can take when island hopping in Greece to escape unscathed:

    • Pay attention to warning signs and safety advice
    • Take care when swimming in the sea and listen out for warnings from lifeguards
    • Always supervise children when swimming
    • Wear suitable footwear when visiting ancient ruins or hiking on uneven ground to reduce the risk of slips and trips
    • Always ensure food is cooked through before you eat it
    • Drink bottled water
    • Stay out of the midday sun
    • Wear high factor sun cream and move into the shade if you feel your skin burning
    • Take extra care when driving abroad; pay attention to speed limits and keep your distance from other vehicles
    • Always ensure you have valid travel insurance before you fly
    • Take care when walking on slippery decks on boat trips and ferry journeys
