The Package holiday regulations
The Package Holiday Regulations came into effect in 1992 and were created to provide redress for holidaymakers who have sustained injury and/or had their holidays ruined by some form of tour operator negligence.
One advantage of these regulations is the way they prevent the need for claimants to pursue compensation in foreign courts, a situation which time and again proved to be costly, inconvenient, and impractical for those who needed to.
Was yours a package holiday?
If your holiday was pre-planned by your agent and included two or more services such as accommodation, transport, and other services (for example, food, day excursions, adventure activities) in the price, then it is likely that it is covered by the Package Holiday Regulations.
Over the years, with the internet becoming the major resource for holiday booking, the definition of a package holiday has expanded to sometimes include holidays that are booked online and include two or more components paid for simultaneously.
