Suffered from illness on holiday?

Each year, the travel law specialists here at YourHolidayClaims learn of an abundance of different types of holiday illness.

Some of the most common illnesses can be seen in the list below:

  • Salmonella
  • Cryptosporidium
  • E.coli
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Hand, foot and mouth disease

If you have suffered from one of these conditions on holiday because of poor hotel hygiene, then you may be able to make a claim with the assistance of our specialists.

Suffering from sickness whilst still in resort?

In addition to this, if you are currently on holiday and feel as though you may have contracted an illness, then it is pivotal that you take the following steps.

Firstly it is important that you notify your tour operator representative about your condition as soon as possible so they can record your illness, and carry out a protocol to stop other guests from falling ill.

It can also be beneficial, for you to keep any medical receipts or other expenses of your illness as evidence, and also to take down details of other guests in the resort that have also fallen ill. Evidence and group claims can boost the chances of you making a successful claim.

Ultimately, it is most important that you take on as many fluids as possible when ill on holiday to avoid suffering from dehydration.

Ready to make a claim?

If you feel as though you are ready to make your claim with the YHC team, there are some final things that you need to be aware of.

Our legal team only pursue claims that comply with the Package Travel Regulations act of 1992, which states you may bring a claim against your tour operator if you have suffered an illness caused by poor food or hygiene standards at a package holiday hotel in the last 3 years.

Furthermore, our team can only handle your claim if you reported your illness to your tour operator whilst in resort, and your condition proceeded for at least seven days.

So if you think that you are eligible to make a claim, get in touch with the YHC team today by completing our quick and simple online enquiry form.

What next?

Once your claim has been accepted by our team, we will start to draft a letter for your case.

This letter of claim, or LOC, will then be sent to your tour operator detailing the problems you encountered along with any related failings of the hotel.

After your tour operator has received the LOC, they then have 6 months to carry out their investigations. However in most cases this is not a worry, as we have an unrivalled 99% success rate when it comes to handling holiday illness claims.

Following this investigation period, our specialist solicitors will then begin to negotiate a price to give you the best possible outcome.
