Claiming compensation for holiday illness in Portugal
Portugal is a popular holiday destination for UK holidaymakers and thousands of people every year book all inclusive package deals to these destination, particularly throughout the British school holidays.
Most holidays pass without a hitch and leave happy memories of sun-kissed beaches and long, lazy days by the pool.
But what happens when holiday illness strikes? Unfortunately, many people have become ill in hotels in Portugal with symptoms of sickness, diarrhoea and stomach cramps, thought to have resulted from poor standards of food and hygiene.
