Your Holiday Claims have helped a family from Bedfordshire secure £8,150 in holiday illness compensation after their stay at Holiday Village Algarve, Portugal was ruined by illness.
Jon Wright and Melissa Cannon looked forward to a well-earned holiday with their young family at First Choice’s extensive holiday village in May 2014 when sickness and diarrhoea left them bedridden with illness.
Sickness stricken mum Miss Cannon told our holiday claims experts of her alarm at witnessing “mould on the placemats” and “birds flying in and out” at the resort’s all-inclusive restaurant.
“We reported on the first day that the resort wasn’t what they advertised on the internet but they wanted £100 to move us” added Miss Cannon.
Symptoms Suffered By Guests At The Holiday Village Algarve
Symptoms of “nausea, sickness, diarrhoea and stomach cramps” left Miss Cannon and Mr Wright struggling to attend to their two young children, one of which also fell ill at the resort.
The ill-fated family of four were also not the only ones to suffer poor health at the resort.
Over 40 British holidaymakers have contacted the holiday illness specialists at Your Holiday Claims to pursue a claim for compensation and report hazardous standards hygiene at the First Choice resort.
With the help of Your Holiday Claims, Mr Wright, Miss Cannon and their family have successfully recovered £8,150 holiday illness compensation.
