Why it's important to be prepared
Accidents don't take holidays. Any incidents that result in injury can be frightening, though the impact can be worse when the incident takes place in another country.
At home in the UK, we're aware of how to seek emergency care, as well as the standard of medical attention we can expect. Road traffic accidents are a particularly common cause of injury to holidaymakers, with who drive on their holiday running into problems with reckless driving and alcohol consumption blamed as a contributing factor to the high accident rate. The same research also revealed that Britons are almost twice as likely to die on the road in Spain as in the UK, almost three times as likely in Greece and more than twice as likely in the USA.
