Every year, thousands of British holidaymakers travel abroad for a dream wedding celebration in the sun.
But what happens when those celebrations are ruined by an outbreak of illness? The dedicated solicitors at Your Holiday Claims regularly speak to people who were left battling illness during a wedding holiday.
Falling ill during a wedding abroad can be an incredibly stressful experience and it is only right that those affected are entitled to claim compensation.
In our latest article, we take a look at how you can make a claim if your dream wedding abroad was ruined by illness.
Make a claim for wedding holiday illness
Anyone who has fallen ill on a wedding holiday can claim compensation for the illness they have suffered as long as the holiday was booked as part of a package within the last 3 years.
Whether youre the bride and groom or a guest at the wedding, you will be entitled to bring directly against your tour operator right here in the UK.
What to do if you fall ill on a destination wedding overseas
If you have fallen ill on a wedding holiday abroad, you should report your illness to a tour operator representative as quickly as possible. They should fill out a sickness form and provide you with a copy of this.
If your health doesnt improve after a few days, we would always recommend seeking medical attention. A doctor may be able to identify the cause of your illness and provide the correct medication.
You should keep the receipts for any medication or any medical treatment you receive as these can be included in your claim at a later date.
Could you make a group holiday sickness claim for the effected wedding party?
If a number of the guests at a wedding abroad have been unfortunate enough to be struck down by holiday illness, they will be entitled to bring a group holiday illness claim.
When a group holiday illness claim is brought, it becomes much more difficult for a tour operator to deny liability for an outbreak of illness.
Your claim will still be dealt with based on your own individual circumstances and the amount of compensation you receive will depend on the length and severity of your illness.
