Incidents of holiday illness abroad in all-inclusive package holiday hotels have increased dramatically during the past 5 years.
All-inclusive package holidays have spread around the world, with holidaymakers frequently travelling to destinations including Egypt, Tunisia, the Dominican Republic, Turkey, Cuba, and Mexico.
Although many holidaymakers enjoy a relaxing break, outbreaks of illness can and do occur.
Food poisoning inparticular is one of the most common causes of holiday illness. When food and hygiene standards within all-inclusive hotels are poor, holidaymakers are placed at risk of contracting infections such as salmonella, campylobacter, cryptosporidium, and E. coli.
This can lead to experiencing gastroenteritis, an inflammation of the stomach or bowels causing symptoms including sickness, diarrhoea, and stomach cramps.
What are your rights?
Many holidaymakers who return home having contracted a holiday illness abroad may be unsure of where to turn for help.
That is why our holiday illness claims team is always on hand to answer any questions you may have on the claims process.
The Package Travel Regulations 1992 allow a British holidaymaker to bring a claim for compensation against their tour operator here in the UK if their illness was caused as a result of fault on the part of the hotel. We will represent you and deal directly with your tour operator on your behalf.
