Yes, you can claim compensation if you were injured on a package holiday if the accident was not your fault.

If the holiday was booked as a package holiday, it makes it much simpler to bring a personal injury claim.

Under the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018, you can bring a claim against the tour operator in the English or Welsh courts, applying English law.

This means that you, as the injured party making a claim, won’t have to deal with the complications of having to bring a claim in a foreign country where different laws will apply.

On most occasions, this means we can claim injury compensation for you in line with the levels of compensation that can be awarded by English and Welsh courts. English and Welsh levels of compensation are usually (but not always) more generous than courts in other countries.
