Compensation for holiday illness may be available where your symptoms are linked to poor food hygiene standards within your package deal hotel. If you are unsure as to whether the details of your holiday qualify as a package deal, speak to our expert team of personal injury solicitors today to discover how we may be able to help you. Remember, we offer a FREE no-obligation consultation.


What causes holiday illness?

There are numerous factors relating to poor food and hygiene standards within your hotel that may cause you to become ill. Be cautious if you notice any of the following:

  • Food that has been left uncovered for long periods of time
  • Restaurant staff not wearing gloves when handling foods
  • Hot food being added to trays of cooler food
  • Food that has been reheated from an earlier meal service
  • Drinks that have been watered down with local tap water
  • Ice in drinks made from local tap water
  • Stray cats and/or other wild animals walking around the hotel and grounds

What are the most common symptoms of holiday illness?

The main causes of holiday illness include contact with foods that have not been stored or cooked at the correct temperature, and the cross-contamination of surfaces and utensils. Depending on the type of holiday illness you have contracted, and depending on your level of exposure to certain bacteria, your symptoms may develop within an hour or days. If you have suffered from any of the following symptoms, you may be eligible for holiday illness compensation:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Fever & chills
  • Abdominal pain
  • Muscle weakness/stiffness

In some extreme cases, holidaymakers may contract more serious illnesses such as E. Coli, Salmonella and Campylobacter.

Gathering evidence to support your holiday illness claim

  • Report any instance of suspected holiday illness to your holiday rep and hotel
  • Report any poor food hygiene to your holiday rep and hotel
  • Request that your comments are officially noted – request a copy
  • Take photos or videos showing any suspected poor food hygiene
  • Keep receipts for any out of pocket expenses you may incur
  • Keep note of any relevant times, dates, and names
