    Can I claim for an accident on a foreign holiday trip?

    The last thing you want to be worrying about when you are on holiday is having an accident, but unfortunately, accidents do happen overseas. If you’ve had an accident on a foreign holiday trip, you may be able to make a claim for travel accident compensation.

    Types of accident on a foreign holiday trip

    There are many types of accidents that you may be able to claim for following a trip abroad. Possible examples include:

    • Transportation accidents, including road traffic accidents, ferry, boat, cruise and aeroplane accidents
    • Food poisoning and other infectious illnesses
    • Slips, trips and falls
    • Sports injuries, such as skiing or water sport accidents

    Possible injuries caused by an accident on a foreign holiday trip include broken bones, bruising, whiplash, joint dislocations, lacerations and paralysis.

    How can I make a claim?
