    Survivor Guide: Visiting New York

    The Big Apple is one of the most popular cities for tourists in the USA with its many, many attractions and hotspots to visit. Stop in at Broadway to catch a show or browse one of the various museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History. See the cityscape from the top of the Empire State Building or take a stroll around Central Park in the summer months. There are also various tours and day trips which may be organised by your holiday operator.

    Put safety first

    New York is a busy city so it is wise to be alert when out visiting the attractions. Due to the hustle and bustle of the city, traffic can be a problem so be aware when crossing the street or when taking public transport. When taking the subway, stick to carriages which have a lot of passengers in and try not to travel alone late at night. In the city, pickpockets and thieves thrive therefore take precautions with your belongings. Injuries can occur anywhere, including while travelling, while staying at your hotel, while taking part in an activity or while browsing the attractions. You may even become ill from eating at the hotel restaurant. However, there is something you can do about it.

    Claims advice

    Provided you booked your holiday with a UK tour operator, you may be able to make a claim for an accident, injury or illness that was someone else’s fault. The Package Travel Regulations apply which means that you can make a compensation claim if you booked your package holiday with a UK travel provider. In addition, your claim will go much more smoothly if your accident, injury or illness occurred during the flight, during travel to and from the airport, during any pre-arranged excursions and anything that was booked as part of your travel company’s package holiday.
