    Top tips for preventing holiday injuries


    A holiday is supposed to be an exciting time – a time to rest and relax, and to enjoy a different set of surroundings. You may stay in a chalet, a hotel, a cottage or somewhere else entirely. However, you would expect the conditions in your chosen venue to be safe and efficient, and enjoyable for the duration of your stay.

    Few people will ever suffer an accident or injury on their holiday. However, things like this can potentially happen. You never know what life has in store for you next. Preventing holiday injuries is about using your own common sense to ensure you are always safe, too – or at least as safe as you can possibly be.

    Examples of potential injuries that might occur

    If the venue you are staying at is not in good condition, you may experience an accident there. Slips, trips and falls could happen anywhere, and if maintenance and cleanliness is not up to the high standards you would expect, you could run into problems.

    Similarly, accidents could happen elsewhere, too. In many ways, preventing holiday injuries is all about staying alert so you know you are not at risk of injuries through not paying attention. For instance, you could easily trip up steps or fall over an obstacle if you weren’t paying attention to where you were.

    What about accidents that are not your fault?

    This is the area you should be most interested in if you’ve been hurt while on holiday already. For example, you could be driving along in your hire car, only to be hit by another vehicle. You might be injured because the hotel you are staying in failed to clear up a spillage on the floor, which led to you slipping over and hurting yourself.
