Bringing a holiday accident claim against the tour operator

If you have suffered an accident on a package holiday abroad, you could receive thousands of pounds in compensation from your tour operator.

Yet many people are unsure whether they booked their holiday as package, and whether they can receive compensation.

To help understand whether you can make a claim, YourHolidayClaims have provided a guide on making a holiday accident claim against a tour operator.

What is the law on making a holiday accident?

When you travel on a package holiday you are protected by the Package Travel Arrangements 2018.

Your holiday will usually be a package as long as:

  • It was advertised as a package or all-inclusive deal
  • You bought the holiday for one total price
  • You bought more than one part of the holiday (e.g. flights and accommodation) from one company with one payment

If your holiday is a package, by law you have a right to expect the holiday booked and paid for.

This means that if a failing by a company providing you package holiday caused your accident, you can make a claim against your tour operator.

For example, if your accident was caused by faulty equipment at your hotel, your tour operator may be responsible.

How can you make an accident claim against your tour operator?

Whenever you suffer an injury on holiday, your first priority should always be your health. If you need medical attention, your hotel should be able to help you find the medical care you need.
