What are your rights?
If you have suffered an illness or accident whilst on holiday, you have 3 years in which to bring a claim against you tour operator. However, in some instances, this may be reduced to two years, so it is vital that you seek legal advice as soon as possible.
The Package Travel Regulations 1992 protect the rights of those who have booked a package holiday through a tour operator. If you have suffered a holiday illness or accident, you may be able to bring a claim against the tour operator as they could be liable for your illness.
Whilst in resort, we would recommend you:
- Report any issues as soon as possible to your holiday representative and hotel
- Take a copy of the complaint and keep details of who you have dealt with, take photos or videos where possible
- You may be able to claim for any out of pocket expenses, therefore you should you should keep your receipts.
