Mrs Smith of London travelled to the AA Awaj hotel, Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt in June 2012.
During her stay at the resort, Mrs Smith suffered symptoms of food poisoning and had to seek medical attention.
AA Awaj is advertised as a 5* all-inclusive luxurious hotel and resort. It features a selection of bars and restaurants including an a la carte restaurant, 4 bars including 2 pool bars and 2 cafes.
A medical professional confirmed her symptoms were caused as a result of gastrointestinal infection, an illness caused as a result of food poisoning.
Upon her return to the UK, Mrs Smith decided to seek expert legal advice and turned to Your Holiday Claims at Farnworth Rose Solicitors to establish whether she had a void claim.
Medical documentation was obtained and witness statements helped to build a strong case against the tour operator First Choice.
Mrs Smith’s claim was accepted and handled by Anne Thomson, Head of Travel Law, and was awarded £2,000.00 compensation by First Choice.
Anne Thomson commented:
“It is disappointing for holidaymakers to suffer illness during their holiday and to be let down by the poor food and hygiene standards in the hotel
“However I am pleased to confirm Jacqui has made a full recovery and we are very pleased to help her obtain compensation for holiday illness.”
Mrs Smith said: “I would like to thank Anne Thomson for all her help, understanding and patience”.
