Package holiday claims
If your holiday was booked as a package, you are legally protected if something goes wrong while you are away. Under the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements 2018, the tour operator you booked with will be liable if your holiday isn’t provided with reasonable skill and care. If you were unhappy with your package holiday because, for example, you became injured or suffered from food poisoning, you have the right to ask your tour operator for compensation through pursuing a holiday compensation claim.
