    Accident claims in Deganwy

    Make car journeys with children easier

    Children are a joy in so many ways, but during long journeys are absolutely not at their best! Planning a family holiday can be a minefield because you want to avoid being stuck in a car with your children for too long. Children can be loud and difficult during long car journeys, they may whinge when they are bored, or get car sick, meaning that you need to pull over all the time and clean the car. You need to be able to entertain your children so that they are quiet and cooperative during the journey, but also so that you don’t get distracted while you are driving, as this can lead to accidents. You then might need to make accident claims in Deganwy.

    • Try audio books. You may be able to focus on driving whilst an audiobook is playing, or you may prefer to give your children an audiobook with headphones so that they can listen quietly on their own. Either way, an audiobook is an immersive experience that should keep children quiet for the duration of your journey.
    • Bring a travel bag. Each child could have their own travel bag filled with toys and treats to enjoy along the journey. This basically means that they are able to change what they are doing from time to time, so that they don’t become bored too easily, or run out of things to do. Choose things like toys, colouring books, travel games and so on.
    • Play car games. Think of games which are fairly unobtrusive and won’t cause you to become distracted, such as i-spy or looking for certain number plate characteristics. Provide children with a chalkboard or notepad so that they can keep track of their games.
    • Keep snacks and drinks in the car. If you have to pull over for snacks and drinks you run the risk of your children being hungry and thirsty when you can’t find anywhere to stop. Bring plenty of snacks and drinks with you for the journey.

    How to make accident claims in Deganwy if you do have an accident

    If you have an accident because you were distracted by your children, there is no way that you will be able to make accident claims in Deganwy. This is because any accident caused by your vehicle is your fault, and damages to both your car and the other car will need to come out of your insurance.
