More Information Accidents on Holiday or Abroad
Most holidays claims are made under the Package Travel, Package Holiday and Package Tours Regulations 1992, which provide victims with the ability to claims against their package tour company even their injury or illness was caused by someone for whom they only and an indirect responsibility.
The Regulations extend to all holiday-goers who were not actually parties to the holiday contract, for example spouses and children.
In order to be able to bring a claim under these regulations, the holiday has to qualify as a “package holiday” which is, as defined in the Regulations at 2(1), requires the following to be satisfied:
- Any two of transport, accommodation and other services ancillary to tourism must be provided;
- Sold or offered for sale at an inclusive price;
- Services to be provided over a period greater than 24 hours, or the accommodation is overnight.
This means that many people, who now build their own holiday (via websites such as www.Expedia.com) are unlikely to be covered by the regulations.
