If a hotel causes illness by failing to comply with hygiene standards or by serving contaminated food then providing the holiday is a package holiday, compensation can be recovered from the tour operator. Examples of poor food hygiene may include:

  • Storing and serving food at unhygienic temperatures
  • Allowing cross contamination between raw meat and poultry and other foods
  • Allowing food to become contaminated by flies, insects and even birds

Illnesses can also stem from poorly maintained swimming pools and public toilet facilities.

If you are unsure whether you travelled on a package holiday or whether it is likely that you became ill due to eating contaminated food you can contact us for a free initial consultation on:
