Holidays to Cuba; a little taste of Caribbean paradise. With breathtaking beaches boasting powdery white sands and crystal clear waters, against a fabulously authentic Caribbean town setting, Cuba is, without doubt, one of the ultimate getaways for beach holiday fanatics.
When embarking on the trip of a lifetime, you want to be sure that your family is protected should you have an accident abroad.
As well as purchasing travel insurance, be mindful of issues surrounding travel accident compensation, should the worst occur. Book with a UK travel agency to ensure your escape is covered by UK law.
According to advice given by the British Government, unlike many other of the popular Caribbean Islands, a visa is required for entry into Cuba. You will also need to purchase a tourist card prior to travel.
British Citizens also require a minimum of six months validity on their passports from their date of return to the UK.
First and foremost, inform your doctor of your holiday no less than eight weeks before your intended date of travel, so that appropriate arrangements can be put in place for your vaccinations.
It is also important to be mindful that the hurricane season in Cuba runs from June to November. If your holiday is booked over this period, keep a close eye on weather warnings before you travel.
If you have experienced an illness or sustained an injury while on holiday through no fault of your own, it is worth speaking with Accident Advice Helpline to determine if you have a valid case for compensation.
It is a legal obligation that all UK travel agencies ensure the health and safety of their customers while travelling abroad. If your holiday-related injury or illness occurred in the last three years due to an element of your holiday arranged by the travel company, it is likely that Accident Advice Helpline will be able to help you.
