Coachella is a famous music festival held every summer in California. There are always some big names bands and artists who play at the event which draws massive crowds to this weekend.
This event can be part of the cause of many a travel accident so here are five tips to avoid a travel injury.
Travel and camp in numbers to stay safe and avoid a travel accident
This may be an obvious one but it really is safer to stay in a group rather than on your own. Not only will you have people to look out for you and help prevent a travel injury but you won’t be seen as vulnerable by people who may be looking to steal valuables or worse.
Don’t drink too much
Music festivals usually mean a lot of alcohol but the more you consume the less inhibited you will be and the more likely you will be to sustain a travel injury. Try to alternate your alcohol by having a soft drink in between those of the alcoholic variety.
Keep your valuables on you at all times
The most popular type of accommodation at the festival tends to be camping. This means that it is easy for thieves to break into tents and steal items so to help prevent such a travel accident carry your valuables with you all the time.
Be aware of your surroundings
This is quite a general tip which can be applied to most situations but is still very relevant to Coachella. The more aware you are of who and what is around you the less likely you are to have a travel accident such as a slip, trip or fall.
Buy from legitimate vendors
When you go to buy your Coachella ticket always make sure you buy it from the official sites and not some back street seller. Buying fake tickets could not only mean no festival but could also put you in a dangerous situation if the person you are buying it off is not all they seem.
Travel accidents can and do happen at Coachella and many other events. If you have sustained a travel injury within the last 3 years that wasn’t your fault you may be able to make a claim.
