Illness on Holiday Claims


Getting sick on holiday is awful and can really ruin a break you’ve been looking forward to. Some illnesses are completely unavailable, but when you contract food poisoning while on holiday and it could have even prevented, it’s particularly upsetting.

Food Poisoning on Holiday

A holiday is a great opportunity to relax, be cooked for and cleaned up after and spend time with your family. When you get a resort with great food and drink options, that’s fantastic news. But it also means you’re completely in the hands of the staff on the resort, who it is hoped will take all necessary measures to keep you as healthy as possible.

From time to time, poor food hygiene or other issues can cause food poisoning and other illness. And this can absolutely ruin you holiday if it happens to you.

What to do if you get food poisoning on holiday on resort?

If you contracted food poisoning on holiday as the result of eating food in your resort or hotel, then you may be entitled to make a compensation claim.

While on holiday, you should:

  • Make a note of what you’ve eaten that you believe may be the cause of it
  • Speak to any other holidaymakers who may have also contracted food poisoning on resort
  • Report your illness to the hotel or resort management immediately
  • Report your illness to any holiday representatives from the company you booked with

If you did not do that, it isn’t to say it’s a lost cause.
