At the height of winter, Moscow can reach freezing temperatures of -10 Celsius. So if you are visiting Moscow in the winter months you need to be prepared so that you don’t need to make a travel accident compensation claim.
What types of accidents happen whilst visiting Moscow in winter?
There are many different accidents which can occur when a country reaches these sub-zero temperatures. Firstly, the paths and roads are sure to be icy if they aren’t gritted properly. This can lead to accidents such as slips, trips and falls and even a road traffic accident. As well as this, you could sustain a nasty travel injury such as pneumonia or other temperature-related illnesses.
How to avoid a travel accident in the winter in Moscow?
One of the most important things to do before going out in Moscow is to wrap up warm. Make sure you put on plenty of layers to keep warm and dry. If you don’t wrap up warm then the sub-zero temperatures of Moscow can cause all sorts of problems. Also, avoid staying out in the cold weather for extended periods of time. When you can, go into a café or warm up in a bar. This will help you to stay alert. The colder you get, the more tired you will get and more likely you will be to have a travel accident.
Finally, if you start feeling unwell then go back to where you are staying. Your body is very clever and it will tell you when something is wrong and when you need to warm up.
