Success at trial for UK holiday Makers.

The Travel Law team at Hampson Hughes recently won at trial and secured compensation for a couple whose stay at the Hotel Salgados Palace, Albufeira, Portugal was ruined by holiday illness.

Holiday illness

Unfortunately, just three days into their all-inclusive package holiday, the claimants began to feel unwell. They suffered symptoms including diarrhoea, stomach cramps and vomiting, along with nausea and fatigue. Medical attention was required.

Our clients’ holiday was ruined as a consequence.

In total, their symptoms lasted just under two weeks.

According to the claimants, food and hygiene standards at the hotel were not up to standard

Our clients report that meat and fish served in the hotel restaurant was served under-cooked and at the incorrect temperature. They believe the seafood may have been the cause of their illness.


Despite reporting their illnesses and complaining,  the tour operator, Jet 2 disputed liability throughout the claim and refused to take responsibility for our clients’’ illnesses.

The matters proceeded to trial. The trial Judge supported our clients’ claims and settlement was secured on behalf of both of them.

Our expert Travel Law team managed to secure a total of £3923.00 in compensation for our clients on this occasion.

Here at Hampson Hughes we work with you to achieve the best result possible. We instruct likeminded experts and your case is in the best possible hands from the outset. We are with you every step of the way.

Following the successful trial, Mr Andre commented:

“The barrister appointed to represent us, couldn’t of acted in a more dignified manner if he tried.”
