More Compensation Claims Expected from Tourists Visiting the Dominican Rebublic


The Dominican Republic has been the holiday hot-spot from hell for British tourists over recent years and travel law solicitor Andrew Morton from Manchester law firm, Pannone LLP, says he is expecting more complaints this year as the holiday season gets into full swing.

Morton said, “The last three years have seen the same types of complaint flood in from guests at a range of, normally, all-inclusive type hotels in the Dominican Republic. Poor hygiene standards, inadequate food preparation and shabby treatment by tour operators all figure prominently in the list of complaints we receive from clients about the same hotels year in year out. It really is astounding that the tour operators do not seem to address the issues but instead seem to hope the problems will miraculously disappear.”

The advice he gives to travellers who find themselves on the “Holiday from hell,” is to gather as much evidence as possible, including photographs, receipts for medicines and medical treatment and copies of complaints made to tour reps. He also advises seeing a doctor on return from holiday if illness was involved and if necessary, taking advice from a specialist solicitor to see if a claim for compensation may be pursued.

Andrew Morton specialises in ruined holiday compensation claims, hotel and cruise ship food poisoning cases and accidents on holiday. Andrew is a member of the Law Society Personal Injury Panel, the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and the Travel and Tourism Lawyers Association.
