At Your Holiday Claims we have received an enquiry after two holidaymakers fell ill during their stay at the Marhaba Beach Hotel in Sousse, Tunisia.
The four star hotel is promoted by tour operators including First Choice and Thomas Cook.
In recent weeks, we have received a number of enquiries from holidaymakers who have contracted food poisoning within Tunisian hotels.
Tunisia holiday illness claims
If you have fallen ill on holiday in Tunisia, you may have the right to make a claim for compensation. Under the Package Travel Regulations 1992, a tour operator is liable for all services provided during a package holiday. This means that if you have fallen ill during a package holiday in Tunisia as a result of poor food or hygiene standards, you have the right to bring a claim against your tour operator here in the UK.
Anne Thomson, Head of Travel Law at Your Holiday Claims, commented: âWe are currently receiving enquiries from holidaymakers who have fallen ill at the Marhaba Beach Hotel in Tunisia.
âWhere standards of cleanliness or food hygiene standards are poor within all-inclusive hotels, holidaymakers are placed at risk of suffering serious illness.
âIt is vital that tour operators and the hotel management ensure that any reports of illness are investigated in order to prevent the further spread of infection.
âI would encourage anyone who has fallen ill at the Marhaba Beach Hotel to contact myself or a member of the holiday claims team for expert advice on the merits of making a claim for compensation.
