    Claiming compensation for Hygiene failures on All Inclusive Holidays 12th Oct 16 at 8:20 AM
    Hi


    Has any of you been contacted by a firm claiming to help you claim back thousands (more than the holiday cost!!) for your All inclusive Holiday and how the Travel Company haven't inspected the Hotel regularly enough and so it has had 'Hygiene Failures' and not up to standard


    Thanks

    If you weren't ill, or had a bit of a dodgy stomach with no way of proving that it was down to "hygiene failures" rather than a richer diet or more alcohol than usual, I am sceptical about their claims.
    They are the latest incarnation of speculative ambulance chasers as per car crash whiplash injuries. There may be the odd case where a confirmed diagnosis such as gastro-enteritis leads to compensation (minus their large percentage, of course.)
    But along the lines of "if it seems to good to be true,,,,," I'd take it with a pinch of salt.
    Also not forgetting that the cost of any compensation paid out will have to be recouped further down the line by way of increased costs of holidays in the future.

    Edit - earlier thread, for information.

    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    Yep they seem to be spamming everywhere- I suppose they will find someone daft enough to go for it.
    I'm the Board Guide for the Ebay Board , Charities Board , Dosh & Disability , Up Your Income and the Local MoneySaving-England board which means I'm a volunteer to help the boards run smoothly, and I can move posts there. However, do remember, board guides don't read every post. If you spot an illegal or inappropriate post then please report it to forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com (it's not part of my role to deal with this).

    Yep, got contacted by phone a couple of weeks after returning from our holiday in Spain, they knew the dates we were there, the resort and hotel, how do they get all this info? Woman said they were representing over 100 people that were ill during the time we were there, I put her nose out of joint a bit when I said we have been going to that hotel every year for the last 7 years and never had any problems, I also said I think, in a hotel with only 250 rooms you'd know if so many people were ill.
    I hate football and do wish people wouldn't keep talking about it like it's the most important thing in the world
