    Dangers of honeymoons abroad


    Honeymoons abroad are a wonderful way to start married life. They do, however, also present couples with various risks. Here are some of those risks and how to prevent honeymoons abroad being ruined.

    Dangers of honeymoons abroad

    Depending on the location chosen for honeymoons abroad, couples could face one or more of the following risks.

    Muggings

    More common in some countries than others, the risk of being mugged can be reduced by not:

    • Dressing like a tourist, for example, avoiding expensive or new items of clothing, designer bags or footwear, and bags or hats with tour operator logos
    • Showing off expensive cameras, mobiles or expensive jewellery
    • Carrying or showing off excessive amounts of cash

    Keeping in well-populated areas and avoiding dark, lonely areas at night is equally important.

    Stomach upsets

    Food poisoning infections and other stomach upsets can be avoided by:

    • Checking whether local tap water is safe for consumption before travelling abroad
    • Being extremely careful when sampling local salads, seafood or meat dishes

    In some places, sticking to reputable eating establishments rather than buying food from street vendors and choosing vegetarian options is your safest bet.

    Loss of documents

    Losing passports, driving licences or travel insurance documents, tickets or hotel information can cause all sorts of issues. Avoid these issues by:

    • Taking copies of all important documents and keeping them separate from the originals
    • Only carrying documents on you if and when necessary

    You may also want to e-mail scans of your documents to friends to make retrieval in case they are lost or stolen easier.

    Getting hurt

    Prevent being injured by slips, trips and falls, boating, diving or other accidents on honeymoon by:

    • Looking out for slip, trip and fall hazards
    • Wearing suitable footwear and clothing for the activities you engage in
    • Using reputable operators with exemplary safety records
    • Not taking unnecessary risks by attempting feats exceeding your level of experience
    • Ensuring electrical and electronic equipment at your hotel is in safe working order

    Using appropriate care and recommended protection to prevent injuries by bites and stings is also important, especially in countries where insects could transmit potentially life-changing or fatal diseases.

    Honeymoon mishaps

    If you were injured on honeymoon through no fault of your own, be it by a trip, slip or fall or any other kind of accident abroad, you may qualify for travel accident compensation.
