Following the governments change on travel advice to the North African nation of Tunisia, Thomas Cook have this week sent out their first flights to the country since 2015.
Tunisia was well recognised as a holiday illness hotspot before the catastrophic events that occurred in 2015, but will it continue to do so as British holidaymakers begin to return to the destination?

To speak to a legal expert now, with regards to making a claim, simply call our dedicated holiday illness helpline today on 0330 100 2851.
U.K flights return to Tunisia
Back in 2015 a devastating terrorist attack near the Tunisian city of Sousse resulted in U.K tour operators rightly stop marketing holidays to the African country, to secure the safety of their customers.
However nearly 3 years on, Thomas Cook has deemed it safe for British tourists to return to Tunisia, and have subsequently put on weekly flights to the country from airports in Manchester, London and Birmingham.
Preceding the attack, Tunisia was a massively popular holiday destination for British tourists, with somewhat 440,000 Brits descending on the North African nation in 2014 alone.
Although, the specialist YHC team were made aware on multiple occasions that many of these holidaymakers unfortunately had their holidays spoiled by sickness and poor hotel hygiene in Tunisia.
This is an issue that the YHC experts feel could repeat itself in the near future, as the high demand for Tunisian getaways from U.K holidaymaker’s returns.
Suffered from sickness in Tunisia?
Here at YourHolidayClaims, our dedicated travel law experts have helped holidaymakers retrieve hundreds of thousands of pounds after having their visits to Tunisia marred by sickness.
Below is a list of some Tunisian locations where some of our former clients have stayed:
- Port El Kantaoui
- Yasmine Hammamet
If you happen to succumb to illness in one of these locations as a result of poor hotel hygiene, firstly it is crucial that you notify your tour operator as soon as possible.
This way, they can take a record of your condition, and also begin to put procedures in place so that they can reduce the chance of more guests being affected.
Furthermore your chances of securing compensation can also be enhanced if you gather any possible evidence that could support your claim, for example medical receipts, photographs, or video evidence.
On top of this, conferring with other guests in your resort to try and discover whether anyone else has suffered from illness can also boost your chances of making a successful claim.
This is as you are more likely to secure compensation if you claim as a group, rather than on your own.
