Pool Bugs Claims

Pool bugs are also referred to as recreational water illnesses (RWI) and contrary to popular belief, chlorine does not kill all germs instantly. There are germs today that are very tolerant to chlorine and were not known to cause human disease until recently. Once these germs get in the pool, it can take anywhere from minutes to days for chlorine to kill them. Swallowing just a little water that contains these germs can make you sick.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I claim for holiday illness?

To make a Holiday Illness Claim under The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992, the tour operator must be based in the UK and have provided you with a ‘Package Holiday’. This is will be stipulated on the ATOL Certificate that you will receive from the tour operator. If you booked a flight-plus or hotel-only holiday then you are not entitled to claim under these regulations.

If the illness you have suffered is believed to be due to the negligence of the hotel abroad, we can help you claim against the tour operator you booked your holiday with by establishing that they have failed to provide a high English standard of reasonable care and that they lacked care and fell below a reasonable standard in the service they provided.
