What is Holiday Illness Compensation?

While most of us experience some kind of stomach upset on holiday, those that experience serious problems including food poisoning (such as Salmonella and E. Coli) or swimming pool illnesses (including Cryptosporidium and Shigella) and gastroenteritis, can claim substantial compensation from your UK tour operator.

You may be eligible to claim compensation, if you suffered an illness whilst on a package holiday or cruise booked in the UK, providing the holiday was within the past 3 years.

Simpson Millar Solicitors have helped hundreds of customers claim holiday illness compensation for:
