Find out if you're legally entitled to make an E coli compensation claim

To make a claim for holiday illness, your holiday will need to have taken place in the last 3 years and be part of a package.

Your holiday will normally be considered as a package if:

  • The holiday was advertised as a package or all-inclusive deal
  • You bought the holiday for an inclusive or total price
  • You bought more than one part of the holiday from one company with one payment

If any of the above applies to you, your holiday will be covered by the Package Travel Arrangements 2018.

This means that your tour operator is responsible for any failings at your hotel. So, if you have been diagnosed with E coli as a result of poor food hygiene standards at your hotel, your tour operator will be responsible.

Other questions you may be asked on making a claim can include:

  • Did the illness you suffered last for more than 7 days?
  • Did you only consume any food at your hotel prior to your illness?
  • Did you seek medical evidence for your illness?
  • Did you report your illness to the tour operator?

If you can answer yes to the questions above, you may have a strong claim for holiday illness compensation.

How can the specialist solicitors at YourHolidayClaims help you?

At YourHolidayClaims, we regularly speak to holidaymakers who have been left frustrated after attempting to deal directly with their tour operator after suffering E coli on holiday.

In many cases, a tour operator will simply offer vouchers or a small amount of compensation in settlement of a claim. Accepting this offer could leave you severely under-compensated.

This is where YourHolidayClaims can help you.

Our specialist team of solicitors have extensive experience dealing with tour operators to help our clients receive the maximum compensation for their claim.

We understand just how serious E coli on holiday can be and how distressing it can be to have a long-awaited holiday ruined by illness.

That is why we fight for you to help you receive compensation for the illness you have suffered, the loss of enjoyment of your holiday and any out of pocket expenses your illness has caused.
