Holiday Compensation Claims
Holidays should be memorable for all the right reasons, and if they aren’t due to a false expectation provided by tour-operators or failings in meeting the requirements of a package you have booked and paid for, you could be able to make a holiday compensation claim.
When your holiday booking is accepted you and the company organizing your holiday enter into a legally binding contract.
The company is accountable for all services promised to you as part of the package, this could include flights, accommodation, transfers, car hire or more.
By law, the customer is right to have an expectation of the holiday that they have booked and paid for. Meaning that the holiday must be as described and no misleading information should be supplied.
The brochure with pictures of the swimming pool that doesn’t exist, or the beach that is significantly further than the ‘two minute walk’ detailed in the package.
Similarly upon suffering an accident abroad or become ill when it’s not your fault you could also have grounds to make a holiday accident claim and receive compensation.
An example of the kind of holiday compensation clams that can be made include:
- Food poisoning
- Drinking contaminated water
- Road traffic accidents (on various transport methods, as a driver, passenger or pedestrian)
- Water sport accidents
- Recreational activity accidents
- Slips/falls near pools or uneven surfaces
- Natural disasters
