How do Monarch Holidays handle holiday illness claims?
It is uncommon for tour operators to admit responsibility for food poisoning outbreaks in holiday hotels and they will often attempt to delay paying any compensation for as long as possible, hoping that holidaymakers will accept a low offer further down the line. Your complaint will probably be kept on file along with hundreds of others and when you eventually receive a response it is unlikely to address all the issues raised.
How long do I have to make a claim against Monarch?
You have 6 years in which to make a complaint against Monarch if it relates to breach of contract or misrepresentation. If your claim relates to holiday illness or personal injury, you have 3 years in which to make a claim. If however your claim is against an airline or a cruise ship you have only 2 years. We would strongly recommend that you seek legal advice before contacting Monarch and we can advise you of your rights and also give you an idea how much compensation you could be entitled to.
Serious illness during a Monarch Holiday
If you are unfortunate enough to suffer serious illness during a Monarch holiday, caused by poor standards of food or hygiene in the hotel, you may be contacted as soon as you return to the UK and offered compensation from the tour operator. However, never sign any document accepting a low offer of compensation until you have spoken to Farnworth Rose. Once you have signed to accept a compensation offer, you will be unable to bring a further claim, even if you are entitled to much more. After an initial claim assessment, we can guide you through the compensation claims process with a minimum of fuss on a no win, no fee basis.
Holiday illness complaints at package holiday hotels
Stomach upsets caused by food poisoning are among the most common types of illness suffered by holidaymakers each year. It is not unusual for tour representatives in package holiday hotels to try and convince holidaymakers their illness has been caused by ´too much alcohol´ or ´not being accustomed to spicy food.´ However, the vast majority of holiday illness and accident cases are caused by poor food hygiene standards in holiday hotels.
How much is my Monarch holiday illness claim worth?
The value of your claim depends largely on the type of symptoms you suffered and the length of your illness. However, even if symptoms were mild, you can still claim the compensation you deserve. We offer free advice about holiday illness claims and we can help you make a claim against the tour operator on a no win, no fee basis. When you contact us we will give you a free claim assessment and advise you of the value of your claim.
How can The Package Travel Regulations 1992 help me?
The Package Travel Regulations 1992 state that tour operators are liable for the proper performance of the contract between themselves and the holidaymaker, including liability for the actions of its agents abroad. In other words, the tour operator has a responsibility to ensure that their individual suppliers deliver their respective services properly, or they can face a direct claim by a customer for any damage caused (other suppliers include the hotel).
