    Holiday accidents: Airport transit

    As with personal injury claims for incidents in the UK, if you sustain an injury during a holiday abroad, it is possible that you may be able to claim travel accident compensation.

    Accidents involving airport transit

    Many airports in the UK, and across the world now, use various modes of airport transit. From shuttle buses to metro systems, airport transit operates with the aim of streamlining your journey.

    Unfortunately, airport transit is the cause of many holiday-related injuries. As with transportation incidents that occur in the UK, airport transit is responsible for injuries caused by events such as collisions and slips, trips, and falls.

    Problems surrounding travel accident compensation claims

    Unfortunately, when visiting other countries, there are various differences in laws and regulations which mean that it is often more difficult to process holiday-related claims.

    Regardless of the details of your accident, or the proof you have collated, cases can become complex and long-winded and in many cases may not be worth pursuing.

    Criteria to strengthen your claim

    Many British holidaymakers do choose to book their trips through a UK travel agency. Luckily, this means that your travel and holiday is covered by UK legislation.

    When booking your package holiday through a holiday company, they are responsible for your safety during your journey and your time abroad. With this in mind, it is far easier to claim travel accident compensation for genuine incidents that have occurred on such holidays.

    In addition to booking your break through a travel agency, it is essential that your claim can meet the following criteria:

    • The holiday in question, and the correlating travel accident, took place within the last three years
    • You are in no way accountable for the accident that occurred, and the injury you sustained
    • Medical records and documentation have been collated to support your claim

    The next steps

    If you are still unsure as to whether your case is eligible, take a look at Accident Advice Helpline website and complete the 30-second test. This compensation calculator assesses your basic case details, and can determine whether your case is worth pursuing.
