Unfortunately, tourists can often become the victims of fatal vacation accidents including fatal bus crashes, deadly bus tour bus accidents, tourist van rollover crashes, charter air travel crashes, helicopter accidents, shuttle accidents, tourist bus crashes, and other serious accidents that can cause catastrophic injuries or death.  While on vacation, tourist are often not in control of the vehicle that they are riding in as well as are often unfamiliar with the tour company, tour bus driver, tour pilot, or tour van driver with who or in which they are traveling.  There is often no opportunity to make sure that the tour driver is qualified, not on drugs, not drinking and driving, not intoxicated, not over worked, or has a history of accidents.

This lack of control combined with a tour company's pressure to make money can cause devastating injuries or even kill a tourist when a negligent tour company, negligent charter company, negligent driver, or other careless party does not properly maintain their tour van, tour bus, charter airplane, helicopter, or other vehicle.  In other situations, the pilot, tour van driver, bus driver, helicopter pilot, shuttle driver, or other guide is not properly trained, is over worked, or is not properly screened.  In still other situations, unsafe tour vans, shuttles, travel vans, tour buses, airport vans, tourists vans, transport vans, or other vehicles are used unsafely to transport tourists. 

A prime example of an unsafe tour van, travel van, or other tourist van is the 15-passenger van.  These vans have been determined to be unsafe for the transport of school children to events on a regular basis and are known to have safety issues as they were originally designed for transport of cargo and lack many safety features that other vehicles have.  These passenger vans have a tendency to roll when they are in a crash or accident.  Combining poor maintenance including old or improper tires on these vans with this rollover crash tendency, can severely injure or kill tourists that are packed into a tour van.

Examples of fatal tour van accidents include a 2010 fatal tour van rollover crash in Utah.  The tour van was carrying Japanese tourists when it flipped and killed three tourists and injured twelve others. A fatal tour bus crash occurred in 2009 in Utah fatal tour bus crash, killed three tourists and injured 11 others.  These tour van and tour bus accidents are common as many tour companies do not properly maintain their vehicles or hire reckless drivers.  Other tour van accidents have occurred in Florida, Texas, New York, California, and several other states injuring and/or killing tourists.
