£1,435 compensation after gastroenteritis ruins holiday at the Reef Oasis Blue Bay Resort and Spa

A Your Holiday Claims client has recently obtained £1,435 compensation after contracting gastroenteritis at the Reef Oasis Blue Bay Resort and Spa in Egypt.

Kathryn Ford, 48 from Derby, had travelled to the Sharm el Sheikh location in October 2013. On the sixth day of her weeklong holiday, Mrs Ford fell ill with symptoms of sickness, diarrhoea, nausea, and stomach cramps.

Due to the severity of the illness suffered, Mrs Ford was confined to her room for the remaining days of her holiday at the Reed Oasis Blue Bay Resort and Spa.

The illness continued on Mrs Ford’s return home and she requiring more time off work. She sought treatment from her own doctor and it was confirmed that she had contracted gastroenteritis on holiday. You can read more about how we help holidaymakers make gastroenteritis holiday claims here.

Mrs Ford said of her stay at the Reef Oasis Blue Bay Resort and Spa: “I couldn’t get out of bed due to being so unwell and was confined to my room until I left the resort for the flight home.”

“My husband paid for a late room checkout so that I could rest and have easy access to the toilet until the flight home. It was horrendous!”

“When we returned back to the UK I was unable to return to work due to the continuation of the symptoms.”

Anne Thomson, Head of Travel Law at Your Holiday Claims, commented: “Suffering an illness such as gastroenteritis can be a distressing experience at the best of times but in a foreign country and whilst you are on holiday  it can be even worse.”

“Gastroenteritis is an intestinal infection which can be caused by food poisoning after food or drink contaminated with bacteria such as salmonella or campylobacter is indigested.”

“If there are problems with the food and hygiene standards in all-inclusive hotels, this can lead to guests contracting illness and experiencing symptoms such as sickness, diarrhoea, and stomach cramps.”

“We are delighted that Mrs Ford has now received compensation for the very nasty illness she contracted.”

Following my family becoming ill on holiday and my 2 year old daughter becoming particularly unwell, I contacted Anne at Your Holiday Claims from an internet search to see what I could do in regards to bringing this to my holiday company’s attention.

I would like to thank Tracy Stansfield for the work she has carried out for me and assisting me in getting justice against the tour operator.

Having never thought to have contacted a solicitor to pursue a claim for compensation before, I am glad that I instructed Your Holiday Claims to deal with my claim following a holiday illness I suffered during my stay in Egypt.
Christopher Whitwell
We are very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were not offered anything from the tour operator we had booked our holiday with.
