Holiday Sickness at the Destina Hotel, Turkey

sick sid

The Destina Hotel has seen several outbreaks of severe holiday sickness among guests in July and August 2013.

Many holidaymakers have suffered from symptoms of gastric illness and dehydration which appear to have been caused as a result of poor food and hygiene standards.

The hotel is rated as a 3 star, and is situated in Ovacik and is promoted by Thomas Cook amongst other tour operators.

If you have suffered sickness at the Destina Hotel in Turkey we advise that you:

  • See your holiday representative and ask for medical help
  • Make a written complaint to the representative, keeping a note of his/her name
  • Refuse any offer of money-off vouchers or compensation until you have contacted Your Holiday Claims, a division of Farnworth Rose Solicitors, for expert legal advice
  • Keep receipts for any out-of-pocket expenses and prescriptions
  • Speak to other holidaymakers – if they have suffered similar symptoms as you, keep their contact details
  • Contact Your Holiday Claims as soon as possible – you do not have to wait until you return to the UK
  • If you suspect your illness is a result of poor food hygiene, refuse to eat anything else at the hotel
  • If the swimming pools are faecally contaminated and the pools are not drained and disinfected, do not swim in them for the remainder of your holiday
  • Write down the dates you were ill and your symptoms
  • Take photo/video evidence of anything which may help your claim
