    How to stay safe on my hen/stag do in Tallinn


    How to stay safe on my hen/stag do in Tallinn

    The medieval charm of Tallinn makes this Estonian city a favourite stag and hen do destination. Care is, however, advised, as Tallinn, like many other European capitals, is plagued by street crime. The following tips should help to prevent loss of property or injuries by violent attacks.

    Valuables

    Keeping an eye on valuables and looking out for pickpockets is a definite must. Tips for preventing theft include:

    • Keeping passports safe and noting down or scanning passport data/photos. Replacing passports/missing flights can be expensive.
    • Looking out for bags and other possessions among large crowds in public areas. Someone brushing past may not be a tourist, but a thief.
    • Keeping bags closed and close to your body.
    • Never leaving possessions unattended.
    • Not carrying large amounts of cash or valuables.
    • Keeping bank cards and cash safely in pockets.
    • Memorising pin numbers instead of keeping them on a piece of paper with your card.

    Naturally, it is also important to make sure no-one is looking over your shoulder when using cash machines.

    Staying out of trouble

    Another important thing is to respect local laws and cultural differences. While Estonians are generally tolerant, they are also very reserved. Drunken, loud behaviour is not looked upon kindly and may even be taken as aggressive behaviour.

    Drunkenness

    The consequences of this can be either be being arrested, getting into a fight with local youths assuming you are looking for a fight, or both. Drinking and acting responsibly is therefore a must if you do not wish to be injured by assault or thrown behind bars.

    Drugs

    Estonia has very strict laws concerning drugs, and prison sentences can be long. You should subsequently not buy, carry, sell or use drugs under any circumstances.

    Strip clubs

    While it is tempting to check out local gentlemen’s clubs, it should be noted that these are known to be among the most unsafe places to be in. Stay vigilant at all times and take all necessary precautions to prevent loss of property or injuries in Tallinn.

    Slips, trips or falls

    Remaining sober enough to prevent falls, trips and slips is obviously also recommended, as is taking care not to become ill with food poisoning by only eating in reputable establishments.

    Travel accident compensation

    If you suffered an injury while in Tallinn, you may be entitled to claim for personal injury compensation. Determine your claim eligibility or get a claim started by calling the freephone Accident Advice Helpline number on 0800 689 0500.
