    Survivor Guide: Heading to Central America


    Connecting North America to the east of South America, Central America offers an eclectic mix of the best bits of both continents. Boasting some of the world’’s most exotic holiday destinations including Honduras and Costa Rica, Central America often ranks high on many travellers’ wish lists.

    With such an abundance of sights to see and cultures to absorb, the last thing you want to worry about when travelling in Central America is the thought of an accident abroad. That being said, it is wise to savvy up on the hazards of travelling in Central America to minimise
    the risk of holiday injuries and illnesses.

    Staying safe in Central America

    Wherever you choose to travel in Central America, you should always book your journey through a UK travel provider. This ensures that all aspects of your trip booked through the holiday company are protected under UK law, should you need to claim travel accident compensation.

    Generally, Central America is a particularly laid back and untouched part of the world, which is one of the reasons why it is important to thoroughly plan any trek you intend to embark upon with the help of travel professionals.

    In addition, you may be at risk of contracting Zika virus or dengue and other mosquito-borne diseases. Before booking, especially if pregnant, you should speak with your GP regarding whether they advise it is safe for you to travel, and to have any necessary pre-travel vaccinations.

    The recent activity of volcano Turrialba may also be a cause for concern. Speak with your UK holiday company regarding travel-elated risks in regards to the Turrialba volcano in Central America.

    Claiming compensation for holiday accidents

    If you have been involved in an accident abroad and you believe you are not to blame for the harm you have endured, you may be able to claim travel accident compensation.

    So long as the accident occurred within the last three years and you are able to provide evidence to both suggest liability and support your stated medical ailment, Accident Advice Helpline will be able to help you uncover whether you have a case eligible to claim travel accident compensation.
