Been Ill On Holiday? Claim With Confidence
If you’ve ever suffered from food poisoning abroad, you’ll know how distressing it is to be in pain when you’re supposed to be on holiday.
Our solicitors have successfully recovered compensation from all of the major package holiday companies including Thomas Cook, Thomson, Tui, First Choice, Skytours, and Co-operative Travel.
Already complained to your holiday company, in dispute, or considering your legal options? Our quick and easy claim consultation is the simplest way to find out if you have a legal right to compensation.
We can help you claim compensation if you’ve suffered from an outbreak of food poisoning while on holiday, recovering amounts of £700 up to £40,000 depending on the severity of your illness.
Don’t have your complaints ignored and don’t be fobbed off. Just call our friendly Holiday Illness Solicitors on 01625 415 850 for expert legal advice – we’ll talk you through the claim process and if you do decide to claim, we’ll take care of everything from there.
Our award-winning lawyers are experts in winning compensation claims for holidaymakers suffering from all kinds of holiday illness, including:
- Food poisoning claims, including salmonella and E.coli
- Compensation claims for sickness and diarrhoea
- An outbreak at your hotel or cruise ship, including norovirus and gastroenteritis
You don’t have to have been seriously ill to be able to claim; mild food poisoning where the symptoms lasted a week or more can attract compensation worth thousands of pounds.
No win no fee Holiday Illness Solicitors
Our award-winning services are no win no fee – so in the unlikely event we don’t recover your compensation, you don’t pay us a penny. We never charge any hidden or upfront costs and we only ever take 25% of the final compensation amount when your claim is successful.
How do I claim for an illness abroad?
If you’ve tried to claim compensation direct from your tour operator – you’ll know how difficult it can be to recover the amount you’re really entitled to.
Hundreds of holidaymakers come to Bott and Co Solicitors each month seeking legal advice after having their complaints ignored elsewhere.
When you book an all-inclusive package holiday through a UK tour operator, your trip is covered by ‘The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tour Regulations 1992’. That means your holiday is protected by British legislation – no matter where you were on holiday.
Our Holiday Illness Lawyers are experts on the Regulations and the different ways the law is applied across the globe, so we do all the hard work for you.
All you need to do is provide us with as much information as you can about your holiday and the symptoms you experienced. We’ll take care of the rest so you can concentrate on the most important thing: putting your ordeal behind you.
Don’t settle for poor customer service from your tour operator – just call 01625 415 850 to get your claim started.
Our solicitors can help with claims against all of the major UK tour operators, including:
- Thomas Cook
- Thomson/ Tui
- First Choice
- British Airways
How much can I claim for food poisoning?
On top of any out of pocket expenses, how much compensation you will get depends on your symptoms, how long they lasted and whether they affected you in the long-term.
As an example, the below table shows the average payout amounts for the different levels of food poisoning.
Average Claim Amounts For Holiday Sickness
|Severity of illness||Ave. amount|
|Mild food poisoning||£700 – £3,000|
|Moderate food poisoning||£3,000 – £7,000|
|Severe food poisoning||£7,000 – £40,000|

- Any pre-paid trips, shows, or events you had to miss
- Additional travel expenses
