While it is certainly recommended to avoid war-torn or politically unstable locations for your honeymoon, there is really no single place that can be considered to be totally safe. Accidents on honeymoon, like slips, trips and falls, road accidents or accidents while enjoying water or land-based activities, for instance, can happen anywhere.
Honeymoon accidents can often be prevented by following a few safety guidelines, including:
- Only using reputable operators when participating in water sports like kayaking, canoeing or jet skiing, snorkelling or diving or when going on boating trips
- Always checking and adhering to health & safety rules and instructions
- Never attempting ‘feats’ beyond your own capability
- Always wearing the necessary protective equipment or clothing suitable for your activity, like life vests when boating, proper footwear for hiking, and so on
- Always looking out for potential slip, trip or fall hazards
- Learning about local traffic rules and adhering to them to prevent car accidents
- Staying well clear of potentially dangerous areas, like known ‘trouble spots’ when enjoying your local nightlife – dark, lonely side-streets and alleys, for example
Sadly, sometimes even the most careful honeymoon couples end up having their holiday ruined by accidents abroad.
