When visiting Magaluf, most groups of holidaymakers go with the intention of partying, and partying pretty darn hard. With that in mind, it is important to remember the travel risks associated with letting loose abroad. After all, its no fun suffering injury or illness abroad and coming home to face a travel accident compensation claim.
Staying safe when visiting Magaluf
When visiting Magaluf, you are, without a doubt, about to set foot into the clubbing capital of Majorca. The party scene is unapologetically bold to say the least; when visiting Magaluf you need to keep in mind the holiday hazards associated with alcohol consumption and high temperatures.
If you do intend on drinking when visiting Magaluf, be sure to drink plenty of water at regular intervals to ensure that you are hydrated. Alcohol will dehydrate you and so will the Balearic temperatures, so having water to hand is really important.
Always hit the strip in groups too. While Magaluf has a very welcoming ambience, it can be all too easy for things to feel too familiar too soon. When visiting Magaluf bars and clubs, stick with friends to ensure that if a holiday accident does occur, someone is around to help you back to your accommodation, or to call for help.
When out and about at night when visiting Magaluf, don’t be tempted to speak with strangers on the streets. Much criminal activity takes place on the outskirts or quiet walking areas leading from the strip. Keep possessions close and stay savvy, assertive to any suspicious behaviour.
Always book with UK travel companies
Wherever you travel, it is always worthwhile to book your holiday with a UK travel company. This ensure that if you do have an accident or suffer illness abroad, your holiday is covered under UK law. This means that your claim for travel accident compensation will be far more straightforward than it would be if you had to correspond and negotiate with companies overseas.
