Many of us have taken to the internet to book our own flights and accommodation. We enjoy the benefits of flexibility and lower costs. Have we considered the disadvantages? One important and often over looked advantage of the Package Holiday is that you enjoy the benefit of Package Travel Regulations.
Package Holiday Regulations make Tour Operators responsible for all the services that make up your holiday. If you have been the victim of illness or you have suffered an accident on holiday, you could be entitled to substantial compensation. Compensation for food poisoning aboard may be available where your symptoms are linked to poor food hygiene standards within your package – deal hotel.
Tour operators often try to settle claims for a fraction of their true value. If you accept an offer of compensation then you will probably lose your right to bring a claim.
