Some information if you’re injured on holiday

If you’re in an accident while on holiday, don’t wait until you get home before you do anything.

The first thing to do is report it locally. If you are in a car accident, you should always inform your insurance company immediately. If your accident happened in a public place, such as a hotel, on a boat trip or even while shopping, report it to the company concerned. They will have an accident procedure for you to follow.

See a doctor as soon as possible, to make sure your injuries aren’t more serious than they look. Most surgeries will offer treatment to a temporary patient if they are on holiday. Follow this up with a visit to your own GP when you return home. You will need a doctor to provide a report about your injuries.

If you were not to blame, don’t worry about trying to find a local solicitor to offer you advice. Accident Advice Helpline can assess your claim and offer advice over the phone, so the sooner you call us about how to claim compensation for an accident whilst on holiday, the better.
