Hampson Hughes: Illness Abroad Claims

Annual holidays are a British institution. We work all year, save up and look forward to a break away in the sun to put our feet up, relax and spend time with our loved ones.

While this may be an institution for us, those providing us with such getaways don’t always appear to respect the sanctity of the annual holiday. Many tour operators and hotel providers are increasingly cutting corners in regards to basic hygiene and sanitation standards, causing many holiday goers to fall ill whilst abroad.

Bacterial infections are the most common cause of sickness and are usually caused through the consumption of contaminated food or water.

The most common food poisoning infections are as follows:

• Salmonella
• Amoebic dysentery
• Campylobacter
• Ecoli
• Cryptosporidium
• Hepatitis A
• Typhoid
• Shigella
• Norovirus
• Giardia lamblia

If your holiday has been ruined because you became unwell, you may be able to claim compensation from your tour operator through English law. In particular the Package Travel Regulations Act 1992, if you specifically booked a package deal.
