Ha Long Bay is a place located in Vietnam and is a UNESCO world heritage site with many beautiful islands and scenery.
Many tourists visit this area every year and it is a popular destination. So, it isn’t surprising that accidents do happen; the question is how do you avoid having to make a claim for travel accident compensation.
Be prepared in order to avoid any travel accidents compensation claims in Ha Long Bay
Before you visit Ha Long Bay, and even before you leave the airport, make sure you are prepared and have packed everything you need from sun tan lotion to any emergency supplies, especially if you are going to be exploring the rain forest or camping out.
Being unprepared can cause all sorts of trouble, and could easily lead to a travel accident compensation claim due to not being organised, so ensure you make yourself a list of everything you need for your holiday to avoid any travel accident.
Trust your instincts
Like all tourist areas there will be untrustworthy sellers and dealers looking to rip you off or worse. If you don’t trust the person, then listen to your gut instinct and walk away to avoid any possible travel claim.
Especially if it is a taxi driver, or similar, as you do not want to get into a vehicle with someone you don’t know and don’t feel comfortable with, as you could be right and you could be in a lot more trouble than a simple travel accident claim would cover.
If in doubt, walk away or go with someone you do trust so you are not alone. Use your common sense and avoid walking around quiet, desolate places especially at night and in an area you don’t know well to prevent a travel accident or worse.
