£3,400 compensation after Holiday Illness at the Tropitel Naama Bay

A female holidaymaker has won £3,400 from Thomas Cook after she suffered a severe Salmonella illness at the Tropitel Naama Bay in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.

The holidaymaker and her partner booked the all-inclusive 3* Tropitel Naama Bay hotel with Thomas Cook, for a well-deserved break in the sun.

However, she began to feel unwell 5 days into her holiday after eating undercooked omelettes and vegetables in the hotel restaurant.

She developed severe abdominal cramps followed by profuse diarrhoea, vomiting, headaches and tiredness. Her symptoms lasted for around 3 days and she was confined to her room, unable to eat or enjoy her holiday.

As her symptoms persisted she went to her GP after returning to the UK. A stool sample was taken which revealed Salmonella poisoning. She continued to suffer for around 5-6 weeks with the painful illness.

The lady approached Simpson Millar, experts in holiday claims, to win compensation for her illness and loss of holiday enjoyment. A letter was sent to Thomas Cook as they were responsible for all aspects of the package holiday under the Package Holiday Regulations 1992.

Thomas Cook responded 1 year and 5 months later denying liability. So, investigations commenced to obtain evidence of the illness being contracted in the Tropitel Naama Bay hotel.

A medical report confirmed that they lady had suffered a gastrointestinal illness, which had been caused by a Salmonella infection because of the food at the hotel.

After negotiations, Thomas Cook agreed to pay the lady a compensation payment of £3,400 for her illness and loss of holiday enjoyment.
