    Ensuring your safety on boozy nights abroad

    It is fair to say that many people increase their alcohol intake when on holidays abroad. We don’t wish to judge anyone for having a drink and enjoying themselves, however, severe intoxication can increase the chances of being involved in a number of accidents.

    It is imperative to stay safe when abroad. As a law firm with years of experience in all areas of personal injury compensation, including accidents on holiday, we at Accident Advice Helpline have amassed an unparalleled knowledge when it comes to your safety on boozy nights abroad.

    The buddy system

    Perhaps the best aspect of travelling on a foreign holiday is being with your friends. Use this to your advantage to ensure that no one gets lost or into any trouble. Take responsibility for your friends and ensure they don’t drink too much. It is a good idea to have a predetermined meeting point in case anyone does wander off.

    Physical altercations

    The number of assaults that occur where alcohol has been involved is astonishing. Even if you do not consume alcohol, you are more likely to be assaulted when in the presence of those who have been drinking alcohol. Ensure you know the number of the local police service and try to avoid any physical altercations.

    Stay away from balconies

    Alcohol affects your sense of balance and increases the risk of suffering a slip, trip or fall. In recent years news on the home front has been blighted with tragic cases of young holidaymakers who have suffered a fatal slip or trip from a balcony. It is important to note that alcohol has not been a factor in all of these cases but it is nonetheless a significant risk factor.
