Campylobacter Compensation

Camplyobacter is a form of food poisoning and is one of the most common forms of holiday illness. The cause of campylobacter is food and drink not being prepared hygienically. If your holiday was a package holiday then you may be able to claim compensation. When you go on holiday the standards of food safety might not be the same in the UK and this could lead you to becoming ill.

If you booked your holiday as part of a package deal (you paid one price for your flights, hotel, meals etc) then you will be covered by The Package Travel Regulations 1992 this legislation allows you to make a claim against your tour operator.
