Accidents while on Holiday

Under the Package Holiday and Travel Trade Act 1995, if you have suffered a personal injury as a result of an accident abroad whilst on an organised package holiday, you can successfully bring a claim for personal injuries against the Company or Tour Organiser who organised your holiday, provided you can show they were negligent.


Tour Organisers have a duty of care to ensure that the accommodation being provided is safe and hygienic. The most common types of accidents that occur while on holiday are slip and fall type accidents (particularly around swimming pools), injuries arising from unhygienic conditions and food poisoning.
