For many of us, our summer holiday is the highlight of the year. We work hard all year, saving to afford the holiday of our dreams, whether that’s two weeks in sunny Spain or an island cruise around the Caribbean.
We expect our holiday to be relaxing, peaceful and fun, so if your holiday turns into a nightmare, it can be a real shock. Being struck down by food poisoning or injured in an accident abroad could lead to a dream holiday quickly becoming a disastrous holiday.
If you have suffered a disastrous holiday, you may have been left severely injured or stranded abroad. For example, perhaps you’ve broken your leg after a slip or trip at your hotel and your tour operator hasn’t allowed you to fly home. You could be left searching for alternative flights and footing the bill or having to contact your insurance company.
Or perhaps you’ve suffered food poisoning and been admitted to hospital for treatment, spending most of your holiday in bed? Whatever your reasons for a disastrous holiday, there is some good news. You may be able to claim compensation from your tour operator for a holiday gone wrong.
What is negligence?
When you book a holiday with a trusted tour operator, it’s usually because not only do they offer value-for-money, but they also provide a certain level of service – you trust them to provide you with high-quality accommodation, airport transfers and other services that you simply don’t get when booking your flight and accommodation separately.
But when tour operators fall short and fail to meet the standards expected of them – such as housing guests in a dirty hotel, leading to food poisoning – travellers may be able to claim compensation for the tour operator’s negligence.
