Loss claims with Your Holiday Claims

Different types of loss on holiday

Every holiday claim is different and the amount of compensation awarded is as individual as the illness or accident suffered. However, when calculating the value of your claim the following are taken into account:

Compensation for General Damages

One of the first things that will be considered to decide the value of your holiday claim is General Damages. This includes pain, suffering and loss of amenity from the accident or illness suffered.

For all holiday compensation claims, there are guidelines that are followed to decide how much compensation will be awarded.

Special damages

In addition to compensation for General Damages, you may also be able to claim for “special damages” such as:

  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Loss of value
  • Out of pocket expenses

This means that you could also recover costs to reflect the disappointment, distress and difference in value between the holiday you booked and the holiday you experienced.

Out of pocket expenses refers to any reasonable costs you incurred as a result of your illness or injury. This can include the cost of medication or hospital treatment, any extra travel costs and any money you have lost due to missing pre-booked excursions.

If you were forced to take time off work on your return home in order to recover, you may also be able to claim for a loss of earnings.

Find out how much compensation you can claim

As long as your holiday took place in the past 3 years and was booked as part of a package, you may be entitled to thousands of pounds in compensation. No win no fee.

Following my family becoming ill on holiday and my 2 year old daughter becoming particularly unwell, I contacted Anne at Your Holiday Claims from an internet search to see what I could do in regards to bringing this to my holiday company’s attention.

Having never thought to have contacted a solicitor to pursue a claim for compensation before, I am glad that I instructed Your Holiday Claims to deal with my claim following a holiday illness I suffered during my stay in Egypt.

We are very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were not offered anything from the tour operator we had booked our holiday with.
