Holiday excursion accident claims

Clients praise the excellent service – there is always a team member available to speak to you.

Chambers UK
Holiday Accident

We regularly assist clients who have been injured in the course of an activity such as a boat trip, hot air ballooning or water sports instruction provided by a foreign excursion company.

If you are on a package holiday and the excursion was sold to you by a local representative, you may be able to pursue a claim against the tour operator in the UK if the excursion provider failed to comply with local standards.

If necessary, we can also investigate the merits of a possible claim against the local excursion provider and/or their insurers in the country where the accident occurred.

You may even be able to pursue a claim against your credit card supplier if you paid for the local excursion with your credit card and the cost of the trip was more than £100. This would enable you to pursue a claim in the English courts and also to recover compensation based on English law.

We offer free initial advice without obligation. This can include guidance over the telephone, a visit from one of our specialist solicitors or a review of your documents. We offer various forms of funding, including no win no fee (conditional fee) agreements. Our team aims to arrange this funding at no cost to you, so that you keep 100% of your compensation.
