A holiday is supposed to be a relaxing time away and it can be nice to have everything organised through a package deal. However, if you are involved in an accident on your holidays, your holiday will be ruined and you could end up physically and emotionally harmed.
Having an accident in a different country can be particularly daunting due to the distance from home and different languages which may be involved. Fortunately, the Package Tour Regulations 1992 make it possible for those who sustain injuries whilst on their package holidays in claiming compensation from their tour operator.
In order to be eligible to make such a compensation claim, you must:
• Have been sold a package deal
• Have stayed for more than one day and night
• Have been sold at least 2 of the following holiday requirements: accommodation, transport or tourist service.
Package holidays detail the responsibilities of both the holidaymaker and the tour operator and under regulation 15 the tour company accepts liability for the failure of any of the parts of the deal. Therefore, if there is a hotel, travel, or service related failure, the tour operator is liable. If you are put in danger and suffer an injury as a result of any of these things, you must write to the tour company within 4 weeks of returning home so that they can conduct their own investigations. Should they conclude that you were to blame for your accident they will seek to defend the claim.
