It has now been more than 6 months since we first reported on outbreaks of illness at the Holiday Village Algarve in Portugal.
Despite this, holidaymakers are still contacting our holiday claims experts in relation to holidays ruined by illness in the summer of 2014. Many have found that after contacting their tour operator directly, they were offered settlements which could have left them woefully undercompensated.
The Holiday Village Algarve is promoted and run by the tour operator First Choice alongside their Holiday Village range of hotels. In May 2014, we were contacted by holidaymakers affected by gastric illnesses and skin rashes.
This continued throughout the summer months, with holidaymakers experiencing “sickness bugs” and “food poisoning”.
Our expert solicitors’ opinion
“In many cases, we are contacted by holidaymakers who were ill during a holiday taken months ago. Despite their concerns, they are often still entitled to make a claim for compensation.
“The Package Travel Regulations 1992 allow a holidaymaker to bring a claim against their tour operator here in the UK. In most cases, a holidaymaker will have three years in which to bring a claim.
“This means that anyone who has received an offer of a voucher or any other offer of compensation from their tour operator, should seek expert legal advice. Here at YourHolidayClaims, we can provide free initial advice on whether you may be entitled to make a claim, with no obligation to continue”.
