When you book your holiday, whether online or via a travel agent’s shop, providing you book your flights and accommodation together in one payment chances are you are buying a package holiday. This means you get extra protection under English Law should things go wrong.
A package holiday must include two of the following three components:
Other tourist service which compromises a significant proportion of the package
It may be a slip on a broken tile by the hotel poolside, or a traffic accident during your pre-arranged hotel transfer. It may be that an activity you booked went wrong, or your whole family sustained a virus due to poor sanitary conditions.
Providing what happened formed part of the package you paid for then you can usually bring your package holiday claim in the courts back home by alleging that the holiday company did not perform the holiday contract appropriately. If they had done – you would not have been injured!
Pursuing Claims Against Travel Companies
The standards that the holiday company is judged by in the package holiday claim are often the standards of the country in which you took your holiday. They can be different to the standards back home which means it is vitally important that you seek expert legal help as soon as possible to ensure maximum compensation in your package holiday claim.
At EAD we have a team of friendly, approachable and dedicated lawyers committed to ensuring maximum compensation for those who suffer from holiday accidents or holiday illnesses. We will visit you for a free consultation at your home, or local meeting place at a time convenient to you, no matter where you live in the country and take full details upon which we can base your claim.
We will in appropriate cases act on a no win, no fee agreement ensuring you are protected from expenses incurred in bringing your claim, if it is unsuccessful. Holiday accident or holiday illness claims can be fraught with difficulty. EAD’s team of dedicated and specialist solicitors are here to help you every step of the way.
