    Five potential accident claims in Buenos Aires


    If you’re planning a trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina, then the chances are you’ll have an extraordinary holiday filled with wonderful memories of gorgeous views and exquisite experiences. However, Buenos Aires has some intrinsic dangers, and if you want to avoid needing to make accident claims, you’ll want to stay alert for the following:

    Passport theft

    This is a problem in many countries, and it’s a particular concern in cheaper accommodation establishments like hostels with shared dorms. Nonetheless, possessions also go missing from hotel rooms, so make use of the hotel safe wherever possible.

    Trafficking

    One of the more unpleasant risks, Argentina is a source, transit and destination for human trafficking, with tens of thousands of underground sweatshops in Buenos Aires.

    Roads can lead to accident claims

    Argentina has some truly perilous roads, including two-way roads on a cliff-edge with no barrier, steep passages, ice and mud. Getting injured in a road traffic accident is not difficult in Argentina, so be very careful on the roads to avoid needing to seek road accident claims.

    Illness

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lists Argentina as a country that requires vaccination for Hepatitis A and Typhoid, both of which can be caught from contaminated food and water in Argentina.

    Mugging

    Buenos Aires is a relatively safe city, but muggings do occur. Try to stick to populated areas, don’t make it obvious you’re a tourist, and try to leave anything of value at home.

    Do I need travel accident insurance?

    Every traveller should take out travel accident insurance, because no one knows what is going to happen on holiday, and it’s important to be covered. Despite the risks, most of us take our wedding rings, phones, laptops, jewellery and cameras with us on holiday, and we also run the risk of street crime, food poisoning, lost luggage and injury. Being covered on holiday is as important as home insurance.
