Since 2013, there has been more than a 500% increase in the number of compensation claims for holiday sickness. ABTA is running a campaign to Stop Sickness Scams.
Claims management companies can be very persuasive when encouraging people to submit an exaggerated or false claim. If you put in a fraudulent or exaggerated claim for holiday sickness, you should be aware that submitting a fraudulent claim is a criminal offence in the UK, which could result in a criminal record and fine.
Watch and share our Stop Sickness Scams videos highlighting the risks of making a fraudulent sickness claim.
