Turkish holiday takes sickness stricken turn for British holidaymakers at Pegasos World
A Recently returned group of 8 holidaymakers have instructed the specialist HIC solicitors after 6 of their party fell sick on holiday at Pegasos World in Turkey.
Claiming to have suffered from symptoms such as diarrhoea, fever and stomach cramps, the sickness stricken six report that both food and pool hygiene standards at the resort were far from four-star as described.
The chicken wings were red raw, comments one of the group.
We also saw flies on the buffet and children defecating in the pool.
As well as the gastric issues, some of the children from our party developed a red, bumpy rash.
We reported our symptoms in resort and sought medical attention.
This was our family holiday but it was ruined.
Once back in the UK, the group sought legal advice from the expert HIC team and instructed Litigation Executive Danielle Burnie on a no win no fee basis to pursue a claim for sickness in Turkey.
Commenting on the case, Danielle said: I am saddened to learn that this familys holiday at Pegasos World was ruined by illness.
Sickness should never be an added extra in your package holiday and I would always advise anyone who is unfortunate enough to fall ill abroad to seek medical advice and report their illness to their tour operator.
If you are able to, documenting any hygiene failings and exchanging contact details with other afflicted holidaymakers can also prove useful should you wish to pursue a claim for compensation on your return home.
