    What should I do if I have an accident abroad?

    It is important that any accident is reported as soon as possible to the provider of the holiday.  In fact, it is a legal requirement that accidents are reported in the holiday provider’s accident book.  This is a legal record of the accident and injuries such as who was injured, where the injury occurred, when they were injured and the cause of the injuries sustained and treatment provided.

    It is important that a copy of the entry in the accident book is obtained as proof that the accident occurred and the injuries were caused as a result.

    Obviously, it is important that medical advice is obtained as soon as possible after the accident to ascertain the extent of any injuries and inform treatment.
