Should you accept a compensation offer from your tour operator?

Holidaymakers who fall ill whilst on holiday should not accept compensation offers or vouchers directly from the tour operator.

Tour operators often undervalue claims and holidaymakers who attempt to deal with them directly, may accept a woefully inadequate offer.

Most holidaymakers who have suffered illness contact their tour operator upon their return to the UK to lodge a complaint. Tour operators will rarely admit liability and may offer a goodwill gesture or compensation.

Sickness on holiday can result in long term medical problems. A holiday voucher will not compensate a holidaymaker sufficiently for the discomfort and illness they have suffered through no fault of their own.

It is worth noting that if compensation in any form is accepted from the tour operator, it is unlikely you will be able to make a further claim against them in the future.
