After falling sick on holiday, most people are unsure of where they should they turn for help and whether they will be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
The first step for anyone is normally to contact their tour operator to make a complaint about the holiday. However, many people are left frustrated after receiving an insufficient reply or even no reply at all.
Taking a complaint against a major tour operator alone can seem like a daunting task but with legal support from YourHolidayClaims, you can receive the compensation that you deserve.

What evidence do you need to make a claim?
When making a claim for compensation, you can make the process much easier if you have evidence to support your claim. This could include:
- Photographic evidence of any hygiene failings at your hotel
- Medical notes or receipts for any treatment you have received for your illness
- Contact details of any other holidaymakers who suffered similar symptoms at your hotel
It is also important to report your illness to a tour operator representative if you can. This will ensure that there is a record of the illness with the tour operator.
How to know if you’re entitled to make a claim?
When bringing a claim, you will be protected by the Package Travel Regulations 1992. Under the regulations, your tour operator is responsible for ensuring high food and hygiene standards are upheld in your hotel.
As long as your holiday was booked as package within the past 3 years, you could be entitled to bring a claim against your tour operator.
