If you book a package holiday you are covered by the law of the Package Travel
Regulations 1992, which can help you gain the compensation you deserve. In order to
do this you need to consider a professional team of lawyers, such as the holiday
compensation claims Simpson Millar LLP. No matter how obvious your case is, there are
laws, procedures, tips and tricks. You cannot just submit a complaints and expect to get
some compensation. Besides, most companies hire expert lawyers to represent them,
so when you have to face a professional it becomes very difficult. You have no clue on
the procedures and you don't know how tricky particular questions or techniques might
be. Besides, the laws have never been clear enough. There is always enough room for
interpretation, hence the necessity of a lawyer.

Now, what are the procedures and rules you need in order to be successful? First of all,
your vacation must be a package holiday from a UK tour operator. This means you need
to get in touch with an agency and benefit from at least two services in the plan you
pick. Most companies provide the accommodation and the transportation, but it
depends on your destination and purpose of the vacation. If you go to countries with a
huge traditional load, such as China, Egypt or Turkey, you definitely want to see as much
as you can. You gain access to a new lifestyle and different cultures. When you head to
Africa, a safari is mandatory, for instance. Therefore, some tour operators also include
the trips or the excursions in their packages, depending on how much you are willing to
pay.

This is when Simpson Millar LLP can help you out. Basically, the tour operator is
responsible for these services it provides. If you encounter slight delays in the plane
flights and you have to wait for hours in the airport, you can always ask for
compensation. If the hotel accommodation is far from what you saw in the brochures
and the service is defective, then again you can ask for compensation. What if you end
up with food poisoning due to unhygienic conditions in the hotel restaurant or a poorly
cooked meal? Such problems can ruin your vacation. No matter how exclusive and
heavenly the landscapes are, the accommodation is extremely important. If you get out
of the hotel pool and you slip and fall, you are free to ask for compensation. The same
rule applies if you fall on the stairs. Basically, any accident from a service covered by the
operator may be the subject of your claim.

In order to end up with a solid case, you need to save all the papers or documents you
will get from the doctor or the hospital, not to mention about the tickets and any other
forms you might get. Don't forget to make a complaint to the hotel manager, but also at
the operator representative.
