    Staying safe in the Peak District


    The Peak District boasts some of the very best scenery that the whole of Britain has to offer. Monumental mountains and captivating countryside ensure that any trip to this spectacular region is sure to live long in the memory.

    Of course, the last thing you want to happen is for a serious accident on holiday to sour the memory and leave you searching for travel accident compensation.

    How can I avoid a travel accident whilst exploring the Peak District?

    Fortunately, there are a number of steps you can take to minimise both the likelihood and potential severity of any holiday accidents you may suffer.

    Equipment

    The first key to staying safe in the Peak District is to ensure you have everything you need and that every eventuality is covered. Your travelling supplies for a day’s trekking should include, but by no means be limited to, the following:

    • A compass
    • A fully charged mobile phone
    • Sensible, sturdy walking shoes
    • Comfortable walking shorts / trousers
    • Fleeces and a light raincoat
    • Plenty of high-energy food (protein bars etc.)
    • Water
    • A map

    The weather in England is susceptible to sudden and abrupt change so you need to be prepared for bright sunshine one minute and a downpour the next.

    The right shoes can go a long way to help avoid suffering injuries whilst travelling and practicality should always rule over style.

    Personal Safety

    Of course, no matter how well prepared you are, a holiday accident may still happen. You can help limit the severity of the impact and subsequent damage by:

    • Making sure you travel in groups and never alone.
    • Letting someone know where you are going and what time you expect to be back.
    • Having the contact numbers of your hotel / friends / emergency services with you.
    • Planning your route meticulously and carefully.

    Much of the charm of the Peak District lies in its tranquility and unspoiled beauty. However, its remoteness can also present problems in terms of response times and access for the emergency services should the worst happen and you suffer a serious travelling accident. Having people back at base knowing where you are means the alarm can be quickly raised if you are not back when expected.

    If you suffer an injury on holiday, Accident Advice Helpline can establish whether you have a holiday accident claim to make. They work on a no win, no fee** basis and can normally settle out of court.
