Holiday campaign 2011

When you go away on holiday, whether staying in a B&B, villa, chalet, hotel, caravan or boat, you might  be more vulnerable than in your own home. You don't always know how often the gas appliances in your accommodation have been safety checked or serviced or if it's been done by someone qualified.

Badly fitted and poorly maintained gas cookers, boilers and fires can cause gas leaks, explosions, fires, and carbon monoxide poisoning - which can kill.

Gas safety regulations vary across the world. Gas Safe Register recommends that anyone taking a trip away follows simple gas safety precautions.
