    How to stay safe while travelling through Europe


    Terrorist attacks, political and civil unrest over the recent month and years, and perhaps most notably the November 2015 incidents in Paris and the March 2016 bombings in Brussels, are making many travellers think twice before taking a trip to Europe. All said and done, however, travelling through Europe is ultimately no more of a risk than taking a trip to Africa or the USA, for instance, if you take a few simple safety precautions.

    Travelling through Europe

    As terrorism appears to be concentrated on larger cities, one way of staying reasonably safe could be to visit less significant, smaller towns and cities than a country’s capital, for example. Avoiding demonstrations, protests and demonstrations and avoiding areas where civil unrest or attacks have taken place will also reduce your risk of personal injuries while travelling through Europe, as will:

    • Keeping an eye on government travel warnings and, if possible, avoiding areas of particular concern
    • Avoiding drawing unnecessary attention to yourself by being careful what you decide to take photographs of
    • Monitoring global and local news reports

    Should an incident occur, you should follow any advice or instructions provided by local authorities.

    Other mishaps when travelling through Europe

    While the threat of terrorist attacks when travelling through Europe cannot be denied, the risk of being hurt by such an outrage is just as imminent in other areas of the world.

    Considering the millions of people who travel around Europe and all over the world without becoming victims of an attack, it is quite fair to say that ultimately, you far more likely to be injured by slips, trips and falls than by any other incident.

    Preventing common mishaps while travelling through Europe

    In Europe, just like everywhere else, trips, slips and falls are among the most common causes of accidental injuries to tourists. Injuries by tripping, slipping or falling can often be prevented by minding your step; looking out for slip or trip hazards, like clutter or spills on shop floors, for instance, and, if you spot a trip or slip hazard, reporting it to relevant authorities immediately.

    European incidents

    If you were injured in Europe in an accident that was not your fault, you may qualify for personal injury compensation.
