How to avoid injury when on holiday and make an injury claim if something does go wrong
Being on holiday is a time when you should be able to relax completely, and stop worrying about all of the things that concern you in your day to day life. However, the fact that you start to let your guard down when you are on holiday can be the exact thing that makes it more likely that you will suffer a serious accident or injury.
If you are aware enough that you can watch out for hazards and avoid them in the same way that you would at home, you should be perfectly safe, but you do need to keep this up for the duration of your stay, and try not to let your guard down the more you relax.
- Get to know the area. On your first few days on holiday you should be trying to learn the area as much as possible, and find out what you can about where you are staying. This will help you to avoid accidents and mistakes which could lead to problems later on in your holiday.
- Ask for information. If you are going out for the day, before you leave the hotel you can ask the people at reception for more information about where you are going, and any advice they have for you. This will help you to prepare adequately for the day, and so that you know what you need to take with you and watch out for.
- Be alert. Try not to let your guard down too much as you move around your holiday destination. Remember that even though you are on holiday, the dangers are the same as they are when you are at home and thus it is important that you keep an eye out for hazards most of the time.
- Travel in groups. Not only does this help you to avoid attack by criminals looking for tourists, it also helps you to spot potential hazards as a group.
