Holiday Village Kos, Greece – Gastric illness reported

Our holiday illness claims specialists are concerned to hear of numerous reports of holidays being ruined due to gastric illness at the First Choice Holiday Village in Kos, Greece.

Despite tour operators promoting the hotel to be a “cut above the average family hotel”, outbreaks of illness such as gastroenteritis can occur when there are breakdowns in food and hygiene practices.

Poor, undercooked food exposed to insects, children suffering symptoms of vomiting and diarrhoea and suspected food poisoning are amongst the concerns people have recently made.

Suspected food poisoning compensation claims

In the UK, the Package Travel Regulations 1992 allow people to claim compensation from their tour operator for holiday illness contracted when the hotel is at fault.

Anne comments on the recent outbreak of illness reported at the Holiday Village in Kos:   “I am saddened to hear of holidays being ruined by illness.  It would appear that there has been a breakdown in food and hygiene practices.

“Unfortunately, outbreaks of illness in hotels abroad can occur, particularly in all-inclusive hotels if food is served lukewarm and exposed to birds, insects and other people handling food which can cause cross contamination.

“Food poisoning, campylobacter, gastroenteritis and salmonella are amongst some of the most common types of holiday illness people can contract in holiday hotels.

“The tour operators who promote and sell package holidays abroad have a duty of care to ensure food and hygiene practices are maintained to the highest standards.  I would urge anyone who has been ill as a result of problems at their hotel, to seek medical attention and then contact us for further advice.”
