Holiday Sickness

If you have suffered from sickness whilst on a package tour holiday within the last 3 years you may be entitled to claim damages.


Compensation for holiday illness may be available where your symptoms are linked to poor food hygiene standards within your package deal hotel:

  • 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

Holiday illness is often caused by contact with foods that have not been stored or cooked at appropriate temperatures, and the cross-contamination of surfaces and utensils. Your symptoms may develop within an hour or days depending on the level of bacteria you have been exposed to. Symptoms often include the following:

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