The city of Amsterdam in Holland is one of the most romantic places to visit in Europe and is particularly famous for its canals, historic sights and museums. There is also an abundance of night life for the younger generation and there are also a number of restaurants, coffee shops and attractions for those who really like to explore a new city. One of the most popular attractions is Anne Frank House located on the Prinsengracht canal. Visitors can explore the wartime museum or can have a look at the actual house where Anne Frank hid from Nazi persecution.
Stay aware of safety issues when visiting Amsterdam
As many are aware, some practices in Amsterdam are perfectly acceptable whereas they are illegal in the rest of Europe. If you must indulge in any potentially unsafe practices, ensure that you are always with a friend and on licensed premises. Don’t use unofficial taxis when going home after exploring the local night life and never walk down dark alleyways alone. There are tram lines operating in Amsterdam so be sure not to walk across them until both sides are clear. It is also the responsibility of your travel company to take care of your safety no matter what stage of the trip you are at.
Accidents during your package holiday
Although you may have tried to stay as safe as possible for the duration of your holiday, you may have an accident or sustain in injury during your flight, transfer to the hotel or in the hotel itself. If this accident or injury is the fault of the staff who have a duty of care to you, then you can make a claim for compensation to the company you booked your package holiday with. This is provided that you booked your holiday with a UK company as it makes the process much simpler. You can receive help from the personal injury experts at Accident Advice Helpline.
