    Survivor guide: Holidaying in Spain’s Basque Country


    The Basque Country is a most scenic and picturesque region in northern Spain. Each year, millions of tourists flock to the Basque Country in order to experience the sights and the sounds. However, an accident on holiday can quickly turn your dream getaway into a break from hell. Here is our handy survivor guide for staying safe in the Basque Country.

    Keep valuables safe

    If your accommodation has a safety deposit box, then it is a good idea to avail of this facility in order to store your passport. It is also a good idea to keep any spare cash in the safety deposit box. Do not bring your entire spending money with you on any excursions in the Basque Country. Ensure that you keep your mobile phone and wallet in an inner pocket of your coat in order to prevent pickpockets from stealing your valuables or identity.

    Avoid wearing Spanish symbols

    Although the Basque Country has an extremely low crime rate, it is important to note that there are many people in the Basque Country who have an antipathy towards being a part of Spain. Avoid wearing any Spanish football shirts or any Spanish insignia as some of the locals may find this highly offensive and it could result in an incident.

    Avoid drinking too much alcohol

    At some point over the duration of your holiday, you will probably decide to try some of the locally produced wines and beers in the Basque Country. Avoid drinking too much alcohol as this can increase the risk of being involved in a number of different accidents. Slips, trips and falls are much more likely to occur after having consumed alcohol, as well as an increased risk of being involved in a physical altercation.
