    Survivor Guide: Visiting Cape Town

    Cape Town is not, as many people think, the capital of South Africa, but it is nonetheless an iconic city, set at the foot of Table Mountain. In Table Bay is the infamous Robben Island, the prison for so many years of Nelson Mandela. The city is vibrant and interesting to look around but it is essential, as in most big cities worldwide, to look after your valuables and to be careful where you go after dark. If with a tour company, you will be given guidance where you should and should not go, but the signs in town are particularly clear and you should have no risk of getting lost.

    It’s inexpensive for a holiday but be careful in Cape Town

    The cost of living in Cape Town is low, with a cup of coffee (to take a common purchase most people know the cost of) averaging around 80p. A meal is less than £5 on average and so there is no need to carry large amounts of money around and this is in fact discouraged. The pavements are generally in good condition but the city copes with its position on the lower slopes of a mountain by terracing many of its open spaces, so you must look out for sudden drops or unusually deep steps.

    What to do if you are hurt on holiday

    Claiming against someone in another country is not easy and most people claiming for holiday injuries tend to bring claims against their tour company. Ring us at Accident Advice Helpline to see if your holiday injury will result in a successful claim. Our advisors are very experienced and can help to talk you through the decision process. Because we work on a strictly no win no fee** basis, it will cost you nothing to ask our advice and could start you on the road to claiming the compensation you deserve.

    Check out these questions first

    Before calling, please consider the following conditions, normally required to make a successful claim:

    • The accident was not your fault
    • You sought medical advice immediately or as soon thereafter as was practical – when things happen away from home this may sometimes be after your return.
    • You were not engaged in any physical activity or sport which is beyond the normal range of your fitness level.

    If you feel you have a claim after considering the above, give us a call. If we think you have a good case, we will take all of the paperwork out of your hands, so you don’t have to worry and can concentrate on getting well.
