Falls Abroad Claims

If you have had a slip, trip or fall while on a package holiday then you may be entitled to claim compensation. A package holiday is one in which you pay for your hotel, flights and any trips as one price. If your holiday was a package holiday then you will be covered by The Package Travel Regulations 1992.

A slip, trip or fall is when you lose you footing and fall. This could be slipping in the area around the swimming pool, or catching your foot on something which might cause you to trip, such as an object on the floor which shouldn’t be there or loose cables.
