What to do After an Accident on Holiday

Can you name the top ranked staycation destination in the UK, according to a recent study?

Skegness has taken the top spot in research conducted by auto-retailer Robins & Day, which found the seaside resort as the place to be if you’re considering a UK-based holiday this year.

Southampton was runner-up, with Ryde, in the Isle of Wight, completing the top three. Sheffield, Lancaster, Stratford upon Avon, Weymouth, Truro, Belfast and Portree (Isle of Skye) completed the top 10.

Based on a number of factors – ranging from destination population size and number of people planning to visit, through to the number of car parks and petrol stations – the study surveyed 2,000 UK drivers about their holiday plans.

Although a trip somewhere new can be a great experience, what happens if you suffer an accident on your way there?

What should you do if you suffer an accident on your way to a UK-based holiday?

The last thing anyone wants is to be involved in an accident. If an accident on the road is due to the negligence of a third party and not your fault, then you may be able to make a claim for compensation and any other out of pocket expenses incurred as a result of the accident.

In order to make a successful claim, it is important that you gather as much information about the accident; location, conditions, sequence of events and details for the at-fault party. The next step is to call Winns and discuss claiming holiday accident compensation.
