From the Great Wall of China to the silent yet impressive Terracotta Army, there are many sights worth seeing if you ever holiday in China. Indeed you may already have done so – lots of people visit the country every year and take in sights such as the Li River and the Leshan Giant Buddha. Wherever you go in China you can be assured of an amazing and unforgettable experience.
Mind your step
Of course you want your Chinese holiday to be unforgettable for all the right reasons – not for the wrong ones. If your tour operator shirks their responsibilities it could lead to you having an accident of some kind. You may trip on a floor that has not been adequately maintained. The restaurant in the hotel you are staying in may not handle, prepare or cook food properly, causing food poisoning. As you can see there are a number of things that could go wrong on a holiday like this.
Was your accident the fault of your tour operator?
It is important to understand that claims for compensation in this situation must fall under the remit of the Package Travel Regulations. The UK tour operator that booked your holiday on your behalf is responsible for providing a safe experience for every component of the holiday. For example if they arrange transfers to and from the airport and you have an accident during one of them, you have cause to sue them and bring a claim for compensation for the injuries you sustained.
