Gluten Intolerance and Coeliac Disease Holiday Compensation Claims
Have you told the hotel of your dietary needs and fallen ill after unknowingly consuming food containing gluten at an all-inclusive package holiday hotel?
Tour Operators advise that you inform them of any special dietary needs before you book so that they can check whether the prospective hotel can meet them. They also recommend that once you’ve booked, that you speak to restaurant staff on arrival so that they are aware of your dietary needs.
On their website, TUI outline the best hotel options in different countries for gluten-free travellers. It is of course reasonable that you would be expected to check that any food you take at the hotel meets your dietary requirements. However, examples of where you could have grounds for a claim after falling ill with coeliac symptoms include:
- An á la carte restaurant at the hotel complex served you with food containing gluten despite informing staff at that specific restaurant of your intolerance before eating
- Buffet food or food served to you was cross-contaminated with food containing gluten as a result of improper preparation or use of utensils on the part of the hotel
- Buffet food was incorrectly labelled resulting in your consumption of food containing gluten.
If you believe your gluten intolerance and coeliac disease needs have not been met and you’ve become ill as a result, you could be entitled to seek compensation. For expert advice, call us today on 0161 813 2131 or start your claim online and we will be in touch with you to evaluate your claim.

Tips if you think you have a claim
The Holiday Claims Bureau team are helping a number of British holidaymakers pursue claims where we believe the customer has fallen ill because the Tour Operator has failed to deliver the appropriate package to meet their specified dietary requirements.
Holiday Claims Bureau solicitor Tracy Stansfield shares the following tips:
“Documentary evidence can be very important in these claims. In proving a claim, a Claimant should where possible be able to ‘show’ as well as ‘tell’. Where possible, you should:
- retain emails and online forms sent to the tour operator or hotel about your dietary requirements
- keep details of phone calls discussing your dietary requirements and whom you spoke to
- have a clear idea of why you think the hotel has been negligent
- Seek appropriate medical attention
- Keep proof of purchase for any medicines you buy
We continue to proudly represent clients in gluten intolerance and coeliac disease holiday compensation claims.”
