Everyone expects that their wedding day and honeymoon will create some of the best memories of their lives, and this should definitely be the case. When you look towards what is to come, imagining your newlywed adventures, the thought of things going wrong and having to claim for travel accident compensation isn’t top of anyones wish list.
Avoiding claims for honeymoon accident compensation
Depending on where you are travelling to, you will be able to find travel advice specific to your chosen country or resort. It is important that you read this before you go to enable you to stay as safe as possible during your time abroad. You can also avoid unnecessary travel accident compensation claims by staying savvy and following general holiday rules:
- Keep valuables in a safe or out of sight in a zipped area on your person.
- Do not walk in dark or suspicious areas.
- Plan any journeys before you leave your accommodation.
- Be sure that the water where you are honeymooning is safe to drink or purchase bottled water.
- Follow any code of conduct your accommodation has implemented.
Holiday accidents that aren’t your fault
Sadly, sometimes travel accidents do happen and we become embroiled in an incident that is out of our hands.
Whether you have experienced a holiday accident due to insufficient watersports training, a robbery or unkempt flooring at your holiday, if you aren’t to blame for the injury you sustained, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation.
Claiming travel accident compensation
Travel accident compensation can be difficult to claim due to the differing laws and languages across the world.
That considered, if you did book your holiday with a UK travel agency, all elements of your break arranged by the company will be protected under UK law. This streamlines the legal process as the case can be fought in the UK against the travel company.
