Claiming compensation for E coli on holiday in Egypt

If you’ve have been affected by E coli on holiday in Egypt it can understandably be a very distressing experience.

E coli can cause serious food poisoning leading to symptoms of vomiting, diarrhoea and in some cases dehydration. This can quickly ruin a holiday which you have worked hard to save for.

At YourHolidayClaims, we believe that anyone whose package holiday has been ruined by a genuine illness deserves to receive compensation for the ruined holiday.

In this article, our specialist solicitors offer advice on how you can make a claim for compensation after suffering E coli in Egypt.

Was your holiday booked as part of a package?

The first thing that needs to be established when making any holiday claim is whether your holiday was part of a package.

Your holiday will normally be a package if:

  • It was advertised as a package or all-inclusive deal
  • The holiday was sold to you at an inclusive or total price
  • You bought more than one part of the holiday from one company with one payment

If your holiday was booked as a package and took place in the last 3 years, you will be protected by the Package Travel Arrangements 2018.

This means that your E coli compensation claim can be brought directly against your tour operator right here in the UK. At YourHolidayClaims, our specialist solicitors have many years’ experience dealing with tour operators to help our clients receive the best possible outcome for their claim.

Can you make a claim for E coli in Egypt?

In order to make a holiday claim, it will need to be demonstrated that the illness you suffered was caused by poor food or hygiene standards at your hotel.

At YourHolidayClaims, our legal experts have already helped numerous holidaymakers receive compensation after suffering E coli caused by poor food hygiene standards in Egypt.

Unfortunately, many all-inclusive hotels in Egypt have suffered problems with food poisoning outbreaks causing illness such as E coli amongst guests.

What evidence do you need to make a claim for E coli in Egypt?

As with any personal injury claim, it is important to gather as much evidence as possible to support your claim.

This can include:

  • Reporting the illness to your tour operator
  • Providing any medical reports on your illness
  • Keeping receipts from any out of pocket expenses caused by your illness (medical or travel costs etc.)
  • Photographs of any poor hygiene standards at your hotel
  • Evidence from any other guests who were ill at your hotel

Having never thought to have contacted a solicitor to pursue a claim for compensation before, I am glad that I instructed Your Holiday Claims to deal with my claim following a holiday illness I suffered during my stay in Egypt.

We are very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were not offered anything from the tour operator we had booked our holiday with.
