    Injured on holiday in Egypt?

    Most people travel to Egypt to see the Pyramids, the Valley of the Kings and the Great Sphinx of Giza, but there’s far more to this amazing country than that. A package holiday to Egypt is a great way to explore not only the country’s rich history but other attractions too. Egypt is a great destination for families – snorkelling in the Red Sea, visiting Ancient Egyptian themed villages and felucca sailing on the Nile are just some of the family activities to try. Head for Cairo to see the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities or explore the medieval markets, or take a day trip to Luxor where you can visit the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Medinet Habu. Alexandria is known as the ‘Pearl of the Mediterranean’ with its white sandy beaches, but take time out to visit the Catacombs of Kom el-Shouqafa.

    Accidents can happen on holiday in Egypt

    Whether you are travelling alone, with friends or with your family, accidents can happen on holiday in Egypt or anywhere else, often when you least expect it. From a slip or trip which leaves you bruised and sore to serious head injuries after being struck by objects falling from height, if you are injured on holiday, it’s no laughing matter! Other commonly reported injuries which could occur include:

    • Food poisoning after eating at your hotel restaurant or buffet
    • Injured on an inclusive excursion
    • Falling as you alight the transfer bus or vehicle
    • Being involved in a road accident whilst travelling in your transfer vehicle

    Whilst claiming compensation for your injuries may be the last thing on your mind, it is well worth considering if somebody else is to blame for your accident.

    How to make a claim

    The first step towards claiming is to contact a personal injury lawyer. They can help you to ascertain who is to blame for your accident. When you book a package holiday with a UK travel agent, you’re protected under the 1992 Package Travel Regulations, which means hotel staff and your tour operator have a duty of care to provide you with a safe service. If you feel this hasn’t happened, you could be eligible to claim for compensation.
