Minibus Accident in Singapore

On 6 March 2005, outside Singapore Airport, Mrs Holloway was getting out of a minibus which was taking her back from the Hotel in Singapore to the airport.  A large metal rod was protruding from one of the chairs on the minibus and Mrs Holloway caught her foot on this and sustained a deep laceration to her leg which required 17 stitches.

We were able to bring a claim against TravelBag, the Tour Operator as they supplied the holiday as a package, part of which was a stopover in Singapore with transport to and from the airport, including the minibus transfer.

We argued that the Tour Operator, TravelBag, failed to ensure that the mini-bus which they hired for this purpose was safe for use and would not cause injury.

The tour operator eventually settle Mrs Holloway’s claim for £4,620.

"We were very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were initially offered nothing from the Tour Operator. Irwin Mitchell were very professional throughout and we are very happy with the outcome."
