Your Rights

In line with the duties created by the 1992 Package Travel Regulations, tour operators are responsible for the negligent acts and omissions of their hoteliers. Check out our guide to holiday compensation for further details.

Were you ill on holiday?

Be cautious in believing your Holiday Representative's unqualified diagnosis that your illness was due to – over indulgence - an airborne virus – spicy food – or a change in climate, and insist that you have your illness checked immediately by an independent doctor to avoid long term medical problems.

Holiday makers continue to return from these destinations having parasites, bacteria, and other germs identified following laboratory tests on blood or stool samples.
