We wouldn’t want anything unexpected to spoil your holiday so keep valuables, passports and return boarding cards in a secure place. Be careful not to pack these items or any cash in your checked-in baggage and please use safety deposit boxes at your hotel where available.
On arrival at your accommodation, look at the fire instruction notice in your room and make sure you know where your nearest escape route is. In the unlikely event of a fire, remember not to use a lift.
Always accompany the kids when they use a lift, just in case of any problems.
A balcony is a great place for taking in the view, but do take care. Stay away from the edge and make sure the kids aren’t left alone.
Keep an eye on children at all times when they’re playing in the pool as not all hotels have lifeguards. Familiarise yourself with the pool layout, depth and rules and remember to take care on slippery surfaces.
The beach can often be the best bit of your trip, but check for warning flags and signage before swimming. Look out for designated zoned swim areas away from motorised water sports.
We all love the sun, but it’s important to take care when you’re in hot destinations. Carry and drink bottled water to stay hydrated. Use adequate sun protection and stay out of the sun in the hottest part of the day.
If you get a stomach upset or any other illness, please contact our 24-hour emergency helpline: 0044 113 387 9501.
The campaign in partnership with the RLSS, promotes good practice Swim Safe messages and is applicable throughout the year, wherever you choose to travel on your holidays.
