£2,400 Secured after Client Contracts Giardiasis in Turkey

Our Travel Law team recently secured over £2,000 for a client after they contracted the Giardiasis infection whilst on holiday in Turkey.

Lykia World Hotel

Our client booked to stay at the Lykia World Hotel in Oludeniz, Turkey. The holiday was booked as an all-inclusive package deal with tour operators Thomas Cook.

Just a few days into the holiday however, our client began to feel unwell and started to suffer with various symptoms relating to the Giardiasis infection. Symptoms suffered by our client included:

• Diarrhoea
• Fatigue
• Abdominal cramps
• Nausea
• Vomiting
• Raised Temperature
• Foul smelling burps

Gardiasis infection

Giardiasis is an infection of the digestive system caused by tiny parasites, known as Giardia intestinalis. It is usually contracted through direct contact between people, but can be spread when an infected person doesn’t wash their hands properly after going to the toilet. The parasites are then transferred on to surfaces, utensils or food. The infection can also be contracted through the consumption of contaminated water.

Our client avers that their symptoms were a direct result of the poor level of food and hygiene standards at the Lykia World Hotel. In particular, the claimant refers to an incident in which they were told by hotel staff that fruit and vegetables served were washed with local tap water, which is thought to have cause the Giardiasis infection.

Hotel restaurant – poor hygiene standards

Whilst visiting the hotel restaurant, the claimant noticed numerous worrying hygiene issues, including food that appeared to have been reheated and certain foods that was recycled for use in other meals. Our client also reports that staff did not wear protective gloves when handling food. Meat and fish products also appeared to be partially cooked and reheated, the claimant noted there were lots of flies around the eating areas, as well as the buffet style food being left uncovered for extended periods of time.

However, the poor hygiene standards were not confined solely to the restaurant as our client reports that the bathroom in their hotel suite was very dirty and in a poor state of repair.

On this occasion our expert Travel Law team managed to secure a total of £2,400 in compensation for our client.
