"If you accept an offer of compensation then you will probably extinguish your legal rights. Tour operators will often try to settle personal injury claims for a fraction of their true value." - Nick Harris, Head of Travel Law at Simpson Millar Solicitors
Important: Do not accept any offer from Thomas Cook if your complaint concerns being ill on holiday or an injury you suffered during your holiday.

We help remedy holidays that have been spoilt by illness by claiming compensation for you, the holidaymaker. Year on year, we claim thousands of pounds in compensation to make right what went wrong. How? It’s simple - because holiday companies have a duty to protect holidaymakers against food poisoning on holiday.
What constitutes a claim? If you have been the victim of an illness due to food poisoning, substandard hotel conditions or suffered an accident that was not your fault during a Thomas Cook holiday then get in touch.
Your holiday is protected by the regulations that make your tour operator responsible for all the services that make up your holiday. Thomas Cook is well aware of their legal obligation to make sure that they provide your holiday to a reasonable standard.
