Road traffic accidents - Rickshaws and Tucs Tucs

If you are going on holiday you might get carried away with the prospect of an exotic adventure, want to try out magical cultural experiences and throw caution to the wind, but take care. Even if you avoid travelling by car or rickety old buses in foreign countries you could still be involved in a road traffic accident caused by other, more unusual modes of transport.

It is common for locals and holidaymakers alike to travel by rickshaw or Tuc Tuc when in countries such as India, and these tend to be fairly safe. However, other destinations are catching on to the novelty of Tuc Tucs and they are now seen across the globe from Covent Garden to Tunisia.

Rickshaws can be like a bicycle, environmentally friendly little carts powered by pedalling. However, they can be motor powered and handled by inexperienced or reckless drivers that move at excessively high speeds round tight corners, causing road traffic accidents galore.

Tour operators advise you to be cautious when deciding whether to travel by Tuc Tuc. Many holiday insurance policies will not cover you for damages or personal injuries obtained in a rickshaw or Tuc Tuc road accident unless you have extra cover for extreme sports.

So just think long and hard when deciding how to travel when on holiday and in the UK and if travelling by Tuc Tuc you may have to hold on to your ‘Hat Hat’.
