Operator faces compensation claims after outbreak in Turkey
Thomas Cook is likely to face claims for compensation after dozens of customers were hit by vomiting and diarrhoea at a five-star all-inclusive resort in Turkey.
The operator has temporarily suspended its holidays at the Sentido Perissia Hotel in Side, where guests had been complaining of under-cooked food and bad hygiene for weeks, according to press reports. Seven guests have been in hospital for over a week.
“Preliminary indications suggest the outbreak was of a viral nature,” Thomas Cook said. “The hotel has put in place a number of preventative measures to minimise any further illness. Our team in resort are providing assistance to our guests and we will continue to closely monitor the situation.”
