The Package Travel Regulations 1992 provide holidaymakers with protection and place obligations on UK tour operators to make sure their customers are reasonably safe, and this means ensuring the standards at hotels abroad, and particularly concerning food handling and preparation, are carried out hygienically.

Our Lawyers handle a wide variety of cases, often involving groups of holidaymakers who have been struck by illness at the same hotel abroad. Typically, we receive cases involving food poisoning, often caused by Salmonella, Shigella and Cryptosporidium.

When you purchase a package holiday your tour operator is responsible for ensuring that the services that make up the holiday are supplied to a reasonable standard.
