Holiday to Egypt Ruined by Poor Hygiene at Hotel

Our expert travel law team recently secured compensation for a client who contracted infective gastroenteritis caused by poor hygiene standards at the Red Sea Holiday Village in Egypt.

Our client booked a week long stay at the all-inclusive resort with her husband and daughter through tour operators TUI.

Holiday sickness

However, just three days into their holiday, our client began to feel unwell. The claimant suffered from stomach cramps, headaches, nausea, vomiting and fatigue.

According to our client, upon arriving at the hotel they noticed a very strong smell of sewage. They claim that the pool area was kept unclean and on occasion there was found to be faeces in the pool itself.

Poor food and hygiene standards

Our client also noted the poor food and hygiene standards within the hotel restaurant. Food was under-cooked, was not served at the correct temperature, food always appeared reheated and was left out for long periods of time. The hotel eating areas were also infested with insects.

Successful outcome

Our Travel Law team secured a total of £2,400 holiday sickness compensation for this client.
