Holiday Compensation Rights
The Package Travel Regulations Act 1992 is set out to protect your rights. It’s more than likely that you are covered by this if you booked a package or all-inclusive holiday through a UK tour operator. Our solicitors can put forward claims for compensation for a package holiday using a number of pieces of legislation and package holiday regulations.
If you were taken ill on board a cruise ship, you may be covered by The Athens Convention 1974. These regulations strictly impose the rights of British tourists stating that the tour operator is responsible for all elements of your package holiday. So you can rest assured your transport, accommodation and food whilst on holiday are all covered by British legislation.

Think you may be entitled to claim holiday compensation?
Sick while on holiday:
- Take photos of the premises, your accommodation, food, and anything you suspect may have caused your sickness.
- Request vouchers (you are entitled to these)
On your return:
- Make a list of any relevant information that might assist your claim
- Keep originals and copies of all travel documentation, tickets & vouchers, photos, receipts, and any other evidence
Even the smallest piece of information or evidence can be crucial for holiday complaint claims.
If you or a member of your travel party become ill, it is very important to record everything you can remember from the days surrounding the first signs of sickness. Begin gathering evidence, as this can often be the difference between a successful and declined claim.
Notify your holiday representative in the resort and speak with anyone in the hotel that has shown similar signs of sickness. Exchange contact information and keep this with your records. Keep copies of any original paperwork, request copies of any doctor or hospital records, and make notes based on any verbal communication from your tour operator.
Always keep records in case holiday illness claims are necessary
Tickets, vouchers, letters and any other correspondence you receive from your tour operator are all helpful when building a strong case for holiday sickness claims. Make sure to request copies of any doctor or hospital records. Where possible, make copies of everything or use your phone to photograph and email yourself duplicates.
Photographs can help claim compensation for holiday problems
If you had a holiday ruined by illness, take photos and videos of anything you suspect may have been the cause. Images of undercooked food, unsanitary or poor conditions in accommodation, a contaminated swimming pool, hotel staff not washing their hands, etc. can all be used as evidence.
Notify your tour operator and contact us immediately
Notify your holiday representative in the resort and ask for a copy of their report. Make notes based on any verbal communication from your tour operator.
