Louise and Robert Knights, along with their young daughter Evie, were left bedridden for several days of their stay and unable to enjoy their family celebrations.

After returning home the family contacted the specialist solicitors at HolidayIllnessClaims and were able to bring a successful claim against their tour operator First Choice on a no win no fee basis.

If your First Choice holiday has been ruined by sickness in the last 3 years, you could be entitled to make a claim for holiday illness compensation.

Several holidays ruined by illness at the First Choice Holiday Village Menorca

The Knights family had jetted off to sunny Menorca with tour operator First Choice to enjoy a week in the sun to celebrate their recent wedding anniversary.

Unfortunately the family were soon battling symptoms of illness instead of enjoying a fun filled break in the sun.

Miss Knights was the first of the family to fall ill with a high temperature, bowel problems and vomiting. She later began to suffer severely with headaches, pain and fever, which UK doctors suspected to be viral meningitis.

Father of one Mr Knights, a paramedic from Essex, also recalled another child visibly vomiting in the reception area of the hotel, despite resort staff claiming their illness was an isolated case.

The Knights family became one of numerous holidaymakers to instruct experts at Holiday Illness Claims to take action against tour operator First Choice after illness ruined their holidays.

With the help of HolidayIllnessClaims, the Knights family have now recovered £3,550 in holiday illness compensation.

Mr and Mrs Knights commented:

Our holiday was ruined by the illness picked up at Holiday Village Menorca and we felt angry that our hard earned money had been wasted.

There were numerous sick reviews on TripAdvisor around the time of our stay which have all disappeared like ours as it was disputed by the hotel.

We didnt expect to receive anything at all so we have been delighted with the settlement and seamless service provided by Sue and the team.
