Important things to consider
Here are some important things you should be aware of regarding your legal problem:
- The Package Travel Regulations only apply to a package holiday which is defined as a pre-arranged combination of at least two of; transport, accommodation, and other significant tourist services.
- The Regulations make the UK operator liable for any breach of contract by any provider of the holiday, such as a hotel, irrespective of whether the provider is based here or abroad, meaning a claim can be brought in the UK Courts even though the holiday was overseas.
- The Regulations, with a few minor exceptions, prevent the operator from increasing the price once the holiday has been booked.
How much will it cost?
If you would like DAS Law to help you with your legal dispute with a travel agency, there are a number of ways to fund your legal costs.
Legal expenses insurance (LEI)
If you have a commercial insurance policy this may include LEI cover. If so, your legal costs may be covered by that policy, subject to its terms and conditions. If you are unsure if your insurance policy includes LEI cover, we will check this with you.
No legal expenses insurance
Unfortunately we are unable to take on private instructions at the moment, and can only work with customers who have legal expenses insurance.
