    Five risky activities on a boozy lads holiday abroad


    Five risky activities on a boozy lads holiday abroad

    Typically, there are few simple elements needed for a lads holiday abroad; drinking in the sun, attempting to meet females and acting irresponsibly. But what if things go wrong?

    This leads to a high risk of physical injury from road accidents, swimming accidents and the like.

    If you have been injured while abroad in the last three years and the incident was somebody else’s fault then you can make a compensation claim. Accident Advice Helpline works on a no win, no fee* basis to help those who have been injured gain travel accident compensation.

    Unprotected sex

    A successful lads holiday will often involve chasing members of the opposite sex and a particularly successful one will mean one or more of the lads ends up having sex. It is important in this situation to always use a condom to avoid sexually transmitted diseases.

    Late night swims

    Going swimming late at night, either in the sea or in the hotel pool can be dangerous since you won’t be able to see the waves and drowning is a much higher risk. It’s particularly important not to dive into a hotel pool at the wrong end as head injury can result if the depth is too shallow.

    Riding a motorbike with no helmet

    There is a high risk of road traffic accidents when inexperienced motorbike riders take to the road, particularly when some may be drunk and if they are not wearing the recommended protection such as helmets.

    Breaking into your apartment late at night

    If you only have one key for your hotel then it is possible that when you get split up from your friends in a nightclub or party you might be the first home without a key. It’s also possible the member of your party with the key goes home early and passes out so that he cannot hear when you are trying to get in.

    In these situations it may seem like a good idea to climb up to a balcony, shimmy across a ledge and jemmy one’s way in through a window. This is unsurprisingly a very high risk activity and can result in an injury from a fall, trip or slip.

    Fights

    Whether provoked by booze or by a love rivalry, there are often fights in lads holiday destinations. There are obvious injury risks associated with scraps on the street and it is important to be careful not to sustain head injuries in particular.

    If you sustain an injury that was someone else’s fault, call an advisor at Accident Advice Helpline on Freephone number 0800 689 0500, lines are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
