£3,000 compensation success for Turkey Holiday Village holidaymaker illness

A holidaymaker from North Yorkshire has taken a stand against his tour operator First Choice for the illness he suffered whilst staying at his hotel in Turkey.

Mr Baybut stayed at the well-known and popular Holiday Village Resort in Sarigerme, Turkey, one of First Choice’s flagship resorts. However, the resort has had a chequered history with previous outbreaks of illness there.

Mr Baybut suffered a severe gastric illness during his holiday and was unable to leave his hotel room for several days which ruined the holiday for him and his young family.

Here to help with your fight against First Choice

Mr Baybut returned to the UK still suffering with symptoms and visited his GP for treatment. Following blood tests and stool samples it was clear that Mr Baybut had contracted a gastric infection from the hotel.

Mr Baybut approached Simpson Millar to assist him with making a compensation claim against First Choice. Simpson Millar’s experienced team of travel lawyers assessed the evidence available and were able to take on Mr Baybut’s claim on ‘No Win, No Fee’ terms.

Mr Baybut reported several hygiene issues with the food served in the hotel buffet and the condition of the swimming pool water. Mr Baybut had booked his family’s all-inclusive holiday as a package. This meant that he was able to pursue his compensation claim against First Choice in the UK rather than directly against the hotel in Turkey.

Hassle Free

Mr Baybut was successful in recovering £3,000 compensation for his illness and the ruined family holiday. Asked to sum up the service, Mr Baybut stated the service was, “Extremely efficient, they worked hard for us to get the desired outcome. Excellent communication. Hassle free for the client.”

James Blower, the solicitor who took up Mr Baybut’s case, was described as, “Very professional and efficient.” Mr Baybut added, “You felt as though he was working for you and was on our side. He also managed our expectations very well.”

James Blower commented on the case, saying, “Mr Baybut suffered badly with his illness which spoilt his holiday and must have been very upsetting for his family to see. The Holiday Village in Turkey has a history of illness amongst guests and the settlement from First Choice rightly compensated Mr Baybut for the misery he’d had to endure during what was supposed to be a happy family time”
