Even though it isn’t fair, things can, will and do go terribly wrong on holidays. The best thing you can do is get whatever help you need, deal with the situation as best as you can, and carry on. The following is a short guide to getting help on your holiday if it starts to take a turn for the worse.
At the hotel
If you are staying at a hotel on your holiday and experience some kind of emergency, the first thing you should do is call the front desk or go down there yourself. Whether you are staying at a hotel, serviced apartments or other short term accommodation, they have a vested interest in things going well for you, so they should be more than willing to help however they can. If you need medical assistance, they will be able to ensure that it is called, and for non-medical emergencies your hotel will be able to direct you to any of the local services you may need.
