TATLA Briefing – August 2018



In April 2018 the Ministry of Justice published a new Pre-Action Protocol for the Resolution of Package
Travel Claims. It governs all claims arising from gastric illness during package holidays where the letter
of claim was sent after 7
th May 2018 and the value of the claim does not exceed £25,000 on a full
liability basis. At the same time, gastric illness claims have been brought within a stringent fixed costs
regime. Many have predicted that these new provisions, coupled with the undeniable shift in the judicial
attitude towards illness cases, sounds the death knell for the ‘mass’ market of claims in this area.
