- Get to know the area. Visiting a new place is exciting but it always pays to be prepared. With the amount of information that is at our fingertips via the internet it should be easy to find out where you can park, eat and stay in the area.
- Take your time. There is no need to rush around while you are visiting. Take your time and enjoy the area, rushing makes people pay less attention and that can cause accidents.
- Plan your visit. A little bit of forward thinking will make your visit run more smoothly. Find out what there is to do with the children and what activities there are that include them.
- Don’t leave anything behind. If you or a member of your group needs medication than make sure it is all safely packed before you leave.
This may sound like common sense but you would be surprised how many accidents are caused by people not following simple procedures like these.
