Dealing with your accident abroad claim
We are sorry to hear that you had an accident while you were abroad. It’s a very unfortunate part of life that just at the moment you relax and let your guard down you can be at your most vulnerable. Unfortunately thousands of Britons abroad are injured every year, including people from England, Scotland and Wales. The problem is that once you go on holiday, you don’t know the area or the place you are staying. You don’t know the food or the environment. You don’t properly know the stairs and the layout of your hotel.
You’ll be undertaking many activities that you would not normally do such as swimming, diving, sailing and other water sports. You may be participating in risky activities such as bungee jumping, hiring scooters or bikes, rock climbing or hiking. You may simply stand on glass or get stung by some little beastie. There are many opportunities for you to have an accident while abroad so you need to be extra vigilant. We don’t want you to have to make accident abroad claims in Scotland.

Record number plates and any information that you think will be pertinent to the case.
