Holiday Sickness

Request for a call back







Have you been sick on a holiday? If you or a loved one suffered from sickness, accident or injury, whilst on a holiday, it can have a devastating effect on you and your family members, as you do not expect something terrible to befall on you during your leisure time. Turner White Solicitors can begin a claim on your behalf to help you earn the compensation, which you deserve.

In case of a package holiday, you’re allowed to make a claim against tour operator for compensation relating to any illness or injury caused because of their negligence. Most importantly, it is your tour operator, who is responsible for providing a hygienic and sanitary environment, which safeguards you from any kind of sickness. Every year thousands of people are taken ill on holiday often due to the unhealthy and unclean conditions found at the hotel, which is the tour operator’s negligence, making the victim eligible for compensation.

The steps to determine holiday sickness claims are as follows:

• In a package holiday, a claim for compensation is possible only if you’ve been sick within the last three years. This is the legal time limit for making a claim for holiday sickness.

• Your package holiday must have been within the last three years. Moreover, to be entitled for a compensation, your sickness must have continued for more than seven days, which means that the sickness affected you for a substantial length of time during your holiday period.

If you have had suffer from illness abroad with a package holiday half board, full board, comprehensive or on a cruise with symptom such as vomiting, diarrhoea, stomach cramps, nausea, acute bed bug bites or any kind of suspected food poisoning then get in touch with our No Win No Fee solicitors. Our friendly team will do all the hard work to claim compensation for your ruined holiday, which you deserve.

What is Holiday Sickness?

Have you ever been on a holiday and fallen ill due to food poisoning? Or have you suffered from disease due to poor facilities at your hotel?

Holiday Sickness involves illness and disease due to the facilities and services that are provided to you whilst you are on holiday. Holidays are meant to be relaxing, enjoyable and memorable, but becoming sick due to poor facilities or services provided can really ruin your experience. These services could include anything from travelling on flights to eating at restaurants or even staying over at the hotel. You have the right to claim for compensation if you do not get treated well as a customer.

Holidays are usually bought as a package consisting of at least two services i.e. flights, hotels or other holiday services, with an all-inclusive price. However, they can also be bought individually. But in the case of buying an all-inclusive package, it is the responsibility of the holiday package provider to provide you with services that are clean and hygienic. The package provider should ensure that the services offered to their customers are offered with health and safety in mind. However, if they fail to do so, and you have suffered from an illness because of it, you may be eligible to make a claim directly against the package provider

If your holiday was not bought as a package, but rather you individually booked your flights and hotels seperately, then it may be slightly more difficult to make a claim. However, it is still possible to make the claim as long as you find the hotel, restaurant or service you are claiming against. There could possibly be a language barrier which could make it more difficult too. But if need be, you can always ask a solicitor like us if you get stuck!

If you do decide to make a claim, you must do so within 3 years from the date of the sickness. If you did not suffer sickness but rather suffered other losses then you can make your claim within 6 years after the incident. For a claim involving children, claims must be made within 3 years of their 18th birthday. Exceeding these time scales means you may not be eligible to claim compensation, so you may want to make your decision fast.

We cannot give you back the time you lost due to your illness or disease, but we can surely claim back the compensation you deserve!

We understand that you may have lost valuable time due to your illness which you could have spent sightseeing or spending time with your loved ones, but due to sickness, were not able to carry them forward instead having to change your plans.

It is always worthwhile to contact a high quality solicitor to make sure you get justice, and we do exactly that.
