How to make a group holiday illness claim?

If your holiday has been ruined an outbreak of sickness at an all-inclusive hotel abroad, you may be looking to make a claim compensation.

But did you know that your claim could be much stronger if it is brought as part of a group?

Group claims give people who have fallen ill on holiday strength in numbers, make it much more difficult for a tour operator to deny liability for an illness outbreak.

Here, we take a look at how you can make a group holiday illness claim after falling ill abroad.

What can you do whilst you are still on holiday?

The first thing the legal experts always recommend when speak to a person who is ill in resort is to report the illness as soon as possible.

When you report your illness, your tour operator representative should complete a sickness form and provide you with a copy. This will make sure that there is a record of your illness at the hotel and the dates you started to feel unwell.

If you believe your illness has caused by poor food or hygiene, you should speak to other holidaymakers at your hotel. Outbreaks of illness in package holiday hotels can spread quickly, especially cases of food poisoning.

If you do speak to someone who has suffered similar symptoms to you, exchanging contact details with them will allow you to bring a joint claim on your return to the UK.

Making a holiday claim on your return home

After returning home, many people we speak to attempt to deal directly with their tour operator on their own. However, bringing your complaint directly to your tour operator could leave you severely undercompensated. In many cases, holidaymakers are simply offered a voucher or a few hundred pounds in compensation.

By contacting YourHolidayClaims, you and any other holidaymakers affected by illness at your hotel can make a claim against your tour operator on a no win no fee basis.

Even if your claim is brought as part of a group, you can still receive compensation based on your specific circumstances. Our dedicated holiday claims solicitors will fight for you to ensure you receive the maximum compensation.
