Staying safe whilst on holiday


An injury can spoil a holiday, so you need to do your best to make sure you don’t suffer one. This isn’t always easy, as some injuries aren’t your fault, and when this happens Accident Advice Helpline could help you with a compensation claim. You can do certain things which can mean staying safe whilst on holiday.


Enjoying your holiday

Booking your accommodation in advance means you get to choose a recommended hotel which has all the facilities you need, and one which takes Health and Safety seriously. Try to choose a place which has good reviews and a good reputation. If a hotel has no recommendations, there’s a reason for it.

Enjoying the sun also means keeping yourself hydrated. While alcohol can help you relax and unwind, too much of it can not only contribute to dehydration, but it can put you at risk. Your reactions will be slower so don’t attempt any water sports if you’ve been drinking.

Excursions are an essential part of any holiday. It’s always nice to get a good deal, but be on your guard. Your hotel will usually have details of reputable companies who run excursions. These companies will usually have insurance and make sure their trips are safe.
