Holiday Illness Claims – Your Right To Compensation

Your holiday is precious so when someone else’s lack of care causes you to fall ill you have a right to be compensated. Poor hygiene at hotels abroad is the most common reason holidaymakers fall sick and in most cases is easily preventable.

The law is on your side if your holiday was purchased as a package. The Package Travel Regulations 1992 make your holiday provider responsible for your well-being and this includes making sure that the food supplied at your hotel is fit to eat and that the water in the swimming pool is clean.

Winning Compensation for You

We have helped thousands of clients win substantial amounts of compensation over the years.

Some typical holiday illness claims we help people with are:

Food Poisoning

There are many types of food poisoning often simply called gastroenteritis. The most common forms are:

  • Salmonella – often caused by undercooked chicken or eggs. Read more
  • Campylobacter – mainly linked to chicken but also carried by animals and birds. Read More
  • E-coli – frequently associated with undercooked meat such as beef-burgers. Read More
  • Norovirus – this bug spreads through water onto foods such as washed salads.

Water Poisoning

  • Cryptosporidium – associated with swimming pool water contaminated by faeces. Read More
  • Giardiasis – the source is usually dirty water. Read More

If you are thinking about making a claim for an illness you suffered whilst on holiday you will need to act quickly. The law in England and Wales allows you 3 years from the date of an incident to make a compensation claim or in the case of children – 3 years from the age of 18. However, in some countries the time limits are much shorter.
