What sort of road accidents can I claim for?
At YourHolidayClaims, our expert team of solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation if your suffered injuries whilst on transport provided by your tour operator.
This means that if you were injured on a transfer or whilst on an excursion provided as part of your package holiday and the injury occurred through no fault of your own, you could be entitled to compensation.

What do I need to make a car accident claim?
In order to support your case for an injury caused by a traffic accident, you should:
- Seek medical attention and keep any medical notes
- Keep receipts for any medical expenses
- Report your accident to your tour operator as soon as possible
- Take photographs of the accident scene and exchange contact details of any witnesses
- Keep receipts for any out of pocket expenses you incur; this could include the cost of rescheduling flights home or lost earnings if you are unable to return to work immediately.
The above list is by no means exhaustive but the dedicated accident abroad team at YHC will be able to advise you further.
Is there a time limit to making a car accident abroad claim?
Yes – British package holidaymakers have 3 years in which to make a claim for car injury abroad compensation.
At YourHolidayClaims, we would always advise that you start your claim as soon as possible after the accident whilst events are still fresh in your mind.
