Travel Republic reviews are also a popular way for holidaymakers to take into account the opinion of others. Travel Republic is based in Kingston Upon Thames in London, UK. The business was bought by Dnata World Travel in 2011, which is a subsidiary of the Emirates Group, based in Dubai.

When you travel on a package holiday purchased through a travel agent, if you are injured because of an accident that was caused by substandard conditions in your hotel, on your flight, at an airport car park or in your hire car, you could make a claim against your travel agent.
In terms of making a personal injury claim, an accident on a Travel Republic holiday is an accident that was caused by negligence on the part of a responsible party. Because Travel Republic is a UK based travel agency that sells package holidays, if you are injured in a hotel or on a flight, you will make your holiday accident claim against Travel Republic, not against the individual airline or travel claim.
Luckily for holidaymakers from the UK, when a consumer who is resident in the UK books a package holiday with a UK tour operator, they have more rights than a consumer who has booked their holiday privately. Firstly, your tour operator or travel agent, such as Travel Republic, will be answerable for anything that could go wrong on your if someone else was at fault. Also, you will be protected by the Package Travel, Package Holiday, and Package Tour Regulations 2018 which state that if you are injured abroad you will be able to make your claim in the UK, using a holiday injury lawyer from the United Kingdom.
If you have booked your accommodation and flight through a travel agent such as Travel Republic, your holiday will be ATOL and ABTA protected. What does this mean?
- ATOL: ATOL (Air Transport Organisers Licence), means that your flight is protected by the Civil Aviation Authority. This means that if the airline that you fly with ceases trading, you will be protected from losing your money or getting stranded abroad.
- ABTA: ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents), obliges travel agents to abide by certain standards to protect their customers. These standards have been approved by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute. This means that any payment you make for holiday accommodation through your travel agent will be protected, if the business that owns the hotel or other accommodation ceases trading.
If you book a holiday via Travel Republic, they owe you (the customer) a duty of care whilst you are staying in your holiday accommodation, travelling on a flight, driving a hire car booked through your travel agent, that you have booked through their website. This means that the businesses involved have to take every reasonable precaution to uphold your health and safety, whilst using their premises or facilities. If they fail to do so and cause a health and safety hazard, which results in a holidaymaker becoming injured or ill, Travel Republic could be held liable for the person’s injuries and have to pay them compensation.
If you were injured because of negligence on a package holiday booked via Travel Republic, you could be entitled to make a holiday accident claim for compensation.

Have you been injured because of a slip, trip or fall abroad, on a Travel Republic holiday? Then you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. Unfortunately, slip, trip and fall injuries are the most common form of injury abroad. This is because a slip, trip or fall injury may be caused by even a small hazard on the floor, such as a drink that has been spilled in a hotel lobby, or a loose floor tile by a swimming pool. Other causes of slip, trip and fall injuries abroad could also include loose floor tiles, guests walking pool water onto a marble hotel lobby, causing the surface to become slippery, or broken flooring.

A common or frequently asked question is whether or not a personal injury claim for an accident at a hotel booked through Travel Republic, is bought about against the hotel management, owner, or the site themselves.
If a holidaymaker has an accident at a hotel booked through Travel Republic, which was caused by negligence on the part of the hotel, then you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.

Unfortunately, food allergies could have serious consequences for those who suffer from them. For example, a person who suffers from a food allergy could be hospitalised as a result of eating a food substance that they are allergic to. In the most extreme cases, they could go into anaphylactic shock, which may result in their death, or the person slipping into a coma that they may never wake up from.
Of course, businesses where food is served, such as a flight, or hotel are not responsible for managing a food allergy. However, they are obliged to inform their customers of any allergenic ingredients that are included in their foods; on the menu or packaging and be willing to speak to a customer with a food allergy to ensure that they are well informed in their choices, if necessary. If the business fails to do this and the customer consumes a substance that they are allergic to, suffering an allergic reaction as a result, then the business could be held liable for their injuries and have to pay the injured person food allergy compensation as a result.
If you have suffered an allergic reaction on a Travel Republic holiday, because of misinformation, then you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. Call Legal Expert today, to see if you are entitled to claim.
Many package holidays booked through a travel agent include excursions, tours and organised activities as part of the deal. Providers of these activities have a duty of care towards holidaymakers when they participate in these activities. This involves conducting a risk assessment of the environment or activity, to put control measures in place to ensure that any risk is mitigated and ensuring that instructors are qualified and use the correct equipment where necessary. If a tour or activity provider fails to do this, and a guest is injured as a result, then the travel agent the activities were booked through could be held accountable for the person’s injuries and have to pay the injured party compensation.
If you have been injured or made ill because of negligence on a tour, excursion or organised activity provided by Travel Republic, you could be entitled to make a claim against TravelRepublic.co.uk. Call today to see if you are entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.
If you are injured or made ill on holiday, in an accident that was not your fault, there is a personal injury claims time limit. This means that you will not be able to begin your claim, after a select period of time. If you have booked your holiday through a UK tour operator like Travel Republic, the personal injury claims time limit will usually be three years. We recommend that you contact us as soon as possible to begin your holiday accident claim.
Once you have found the right personal injury claims solicitor, how long will your claim for a holiday illness or holiday injury take? Many claims are straightforward and settled out of court. These types of straightforward personal injury claims with admitted liability for a package holiday will only usually take a several months. However, there may be package holiday claims that go to court, because it is a complicated case or the tour operator disputes the claim, which could take several months or even over a year, to settle. Your travel claim solicitor should be able to advise you how much your claim could be worth, as a matter of course.
If you are awarded Travel Republic accident compensation for your holiday illness or holiday injury, you will receive general damages and special damages. Let’s look at what this means in more detail below:
General damages are awarded to compensate a claimant for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity that was caused by their holiday illness or holiday injury. General damages are usually the largest part of a compensation claim.
Holidaymakers who are injured or made ill on holiday could also claim special damages, which will reimburse them for any expenses they had, as a result of their injuries. We have included some examples of special damages that our clients often claim for an accident on holiday, below.
- Medical expenses: this could include the cost of medication, therapy, an operation, or any other sort of medical expenses you encounter as a result of your injuries.
- Transport expenses: If you had to take a taxi to the hospital after your accident, or had to seek alternative transport after your accident if you were temporarily unable to drive, you could claim back these travel expenses.
- At home care expenses: This could be funds to reimburse a friend or family member who cared for you whilst you were ill, or pay for a professional carer.
- Home adaptation or mobility equipment expenses: In the very unfortunate event that you became disabled as a result of your accident, you could claim expenses to pay for any mobility equipment or home adaptations that you may now need.
- Loss of income: If you had to take time off work to recover from your injuries, you could claim back any salary or in work benefits payments that you lost.
