Survivor guide: Visiting Brazil’s World Cup

It is set to be the most thrilling football tournament we have ever seen. With 64 matches across 12 cities and stadiums, throughout one of the largest countries in the world, now that England have qualified, Brazil 2014 is set to be nothing short of sensational for English football fans – a supersize celebration of the world’s most popular sport.

With so much on the agenda in such a short period of time, Brazil is bound to be bustling. Avoid holiday accidents by being vigilant and keeping safe while you are away.

Staying safe in Brazil

Unfortunately for football fans and holidaymakers alike, Brazil is known for its high rates of crime. There are ways to minimise the risk to you and your party while away and avoid any unnecessary travel accident compensation claims.

  • Avoid wearing lots of jewellery or costly clothing
  • Carry a minimal amount of cash and keep it out of sight, close to your body
  • Refrain from over-showing cameras, mobile phones and other expensive items
  • Keep valuables and travel documents in the safe in your room
  • Do not fight to keep your items in the case of a robbery – simply hand over your valuables
  • If hiring a vehicle, be aware that carjacking is a common crime

Thieves are likely to operate in busy areas, and football matches are likely to attract crowds. Be vigilant while out and about. Remember the consumption of alcohol may not only increase your vulnerability but also void your travel insurance.

How to book your holiday

It is recommended that when you book your World Cup package, that you choose to book through a UK travel agency. There are a number of well-known, trusted holiday companies in the UK that are offering sports packages for Brazil 2014.

Not only will this guarantee your travel, accommodation and sports tickets are confirmed and kosher, it will ensure that you and members of your party are protected by UK law, should you experience an accident abroad or are injured on holiday.

While this may not seem a priority, should you suffer harm while abroad, UK law will ensure a streamlined process should you decide to claim travel accident compensation.
