    Holiday makers and canal boats

    Many people live on canal boats and generally have no problems.  The accidents tend to occur with holidaymakers who hire them out for a week or two.  Quite often they are totally inexperienced in handling these boats and although the operator gives them some instruction before they set off,  they are still prone to accidents.

    Speed boats and power boats

    These are sometimes more dangerous to the people around them than the people in them.  If control is lost of one, anybody in its path is likely to be injured.  This could be water-skiers, surfers or even people sunbathing on the beach.

    They should all have insurance of some type

    No matter what type of vessel you are on there should be some sort of insurance in place in case of accidents.

    With cruise ships the rules governing claims are not so straightforward.  They depend on which port the cruise started at, which ports they visited and which port the cruise finished at.  When Accident Advice Helpline has the details, they can let you know if your claim will be governed by the rules of the Athens Convention or the Package Travel Regulations
