Wherever you venture to abroad, there is always a chance that you will experience an accident on holiday, that could lead to a claim for travel accident compensation.
Minimise the risk of accidents and illness abroad by reading up a little about the areas you intend on travelling to, taking a particular note of any health, safety and security concerns.
Spotlight on the Pyramids of Giza
The three pyramids, which are situated just outside Egypt’s capital city, Cairo, are not only the most famous of their kind in Egypt, but arguably in the world. Taking over 20 years to build, the Great Pyramid of Giza was completed in 2540 BC and is the largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis.
Built as a tomb for the Ancient Egyptian pharaoh, Khufu, the grand structure was dubbed the tallest man-made structure for 3,800 years following completion, reaching an impressive 481 feet high. What’s more, a visit to the Great Pyramid is a ticket to view the last of the remaining Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
All impressive in their own right, when you plan an escape to explore the wonders of Ancient Egypt, the Pyramid of Menkaure, the Pyramid of Khafre and the Great Pyramid of Khufu are three structures that must make it onto your sightseeing itinerary.
With plenty of walking on the cards, it is important that you stay vigilant when touring the sites of Ancient Egypt to prevent avoidable excursion accidents, such as slips and falls due to uneven terrain.
Travel accident compensation claims
If you have sustained a holiday illness or injury, through no fault of your own, you may want to claim personal injury compensation for the harm and distress you have endured.
When you book a holiday with a UK travel agency, the company has a legal duty of care to ensure your health and safety on all elements of the holiday provided by them. This can include, but is not limited to, transfers, flights, accommodation and excursions.
In the case that you become ill or injured on holiday, it could be that the travel company you used are liable, due to failing in their legal obligation to protect your well-being. A law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline can help you determine your eligibility to claim travel accident compensation.
