Barcelona is the sun-drenched, thriving city, perched on the edge of the Mediterranean. With its great weather, rich artistic and cultural history, good food and inexpensive wine, it’s no surprise that so many of us choose to holiday here.
Whether you’ve come for a weekend break, or a longer trip, there’s no doubt that Barcelona will leave you wanting more. However, before you set out to discover everything it has to offer, take some simple precautions to avoid suffering a travel accident.
What kind of travel accidents occur in Barcelona?
- Slips, trips and falls
City breaks often involve a lot of walking and a trip to Barcelona is no different, offering so many things to see and do. In order to ensure maximum enjoyment of your trip, choose comfortable, flat shoes, that won’t leave you with sore feet, or liable to suffering a slip, trip or fall in the busy streets.
- Road traffic accidents
Driving abroad can be a stressful experience, so in order to reduce your chances of suffering a road traffic accident while in Barcelona, use public transport or explore the city on foot. If you do choose to bring or rent a car, it’s a good idea to utilise a satellite navigation system, to avoid getting lost and having a car accident while exploring.
- Food poisoning
One of the best things about travelling abroad is the opportunity to sample new cuisine. This is no different in Barcelona, where plenty of delicious tapas, paella, and other traditional food will be on offer. In order to avoid a nasty bout of food poisoning ruining your trip, choose reputable restaurants, and always check that meat has been cooked satisfactorily before tucking in.
