Holiday Compensation Claims

For many of us, our annual holiday is the highlight of the year. Everyone values their holidays as a time to escape from stress at home or at work, a time to chill out and have a peaceful, relaxing break.

What we do not expect on our holidays is to have stresses that amount to much bigger problems than we are used to dealing with at home. A holiday should be an escape but if something happens whilst on holiday, whether it is in the U.K. or abroad, it can ruin that escape you have been looking forward to for months.
