What to do if you need to come home early from holiday
It will be a very rare occasion that you would even consider coming home early from a holiday which is booked and paid for. However, from time to time things do happen which are out of your control, and which can lead to you needing to leave your holiday early and return home. If you have booked a package holiday, or all of your flights in advance (which most people will have) it may seem tricky to do, but you are not trapped in a foreign country until your holiday ends, no matter what happens.
If you need to leave early because of an accident or serious illness, you should think about using your insurance to get home. If the accident was not your fault, once you get home you may be able to consider accident claims in Dacorum as a way to recoup some of your losses.

- Pay extra to change your flights. In some countries and with some airlines it will simply be easy enough to pay for new flights, or to change over the dates and times on the flights you already have. You will have to pay more, but it will get you home when you need to be.
- Use your travel insurance. If you have travel insurance then needing to come home early because of accident or illness is exactly what your insurance is there for. Anything which can go wrong with your holiday that you may not be able to sort out on your own is the reason you will have paid for travel insurance in the first place.
- Ask organisers of package holidays. It is unlikely to be the responsibility of your holiday organisers to get you home if you need to get back, unless you have had an accident or become ill due to their negligence. However, they should be able to arrange travel for you, or help you with travel arrangements.
- Ask someone at home to send money. If you don’t have enough money with you to pay for travel home, or don’t have the funds available to transfer either, you can ask someone in the UK to send you money to use. In an emergency this can be done by money transfer and should be almost instantaneous.
