Why are group holiday illness claims beneficial?
Also referred to as group actions or holiday illness group actions, group holiday claims can significantly strengthen claims for compensation.
Through strength in numbers, group actions present a clearer image of hygiene failings at a hotel and make it harder for a tour operator to deny liability for an illness outbreak.
For more information on receiving the compensation you deserve, take a look at our holiday sickness claims guide.
Who can make a group action claim?
Put simply anyone can make a group action claim provided that others were also ill in the package holiday hotel at the same time. This is particularly true of:
Holiday Illness Claims negotiated a staggering total pay-out of nearly £100,000 for 42 holidaymakers, including a wedding party of 30, struck by food poisoning at Liberty Hotels Lykia in Turkey. News of our success even made it into the national press.

Owing to the confined nature of cruise ship holidays, if illness occurs, the outbreak can spread incredibly quickly and affect a large number of passengers.
Experienced solicitor, Tracy Stansfield successfully represented 26 cruise ship passengers in a group action against Fred Olsen following outbreaks of norovirus on board the Boudicca liner. The total pay-out awarded was £42,500.
If illness ran your cruise ship holiday aground, complete our quick 60 second form and see how much compensation you could be owed.
Even families can be classed as group actions. Three members of the Whittle family were able to successfully bring a group holiday action claim worth £15,850 against tour operator Thomson, following a salmonella food poisoning outbreak in Egypt.
But I was the only one in my party ill, can I still join a group action?
There is no need to be a lone ranger as long as other holidaymakers were ill in the hotel at the same time as you, a group claim could still be made. You do not need to be related or have known the other claimants personally before your ruined holiday.
Holiday representatives will often try to cover up any wrong doing by the tour operators and will rarely accept responsibility for outbreaks of food-related illness.
For this reason alone, if you become ill at a holiday hotel and you suspect that poor standards of hygiene and/or food are to blame for your sickness, you should speak to other holidaymakers who are suffering similar symptoms. Exchange contact details may be of help in case you will be seeking to bring a joint claim against the tour operator when you return home.
