I bet they didn't expect that retribution. Fools.. but I suppose they thought they were being clever !

After re-reading that article, it would probably be a cheaper option for the Travel Operators to have a mobile resident doctor on call for room visits. It would probably work out a lot cheaper for them. So,if holiday makers don't see the doc. , then no claim allowed. Simple !

On all the insurance claims I've seen and done, the claimant has to produce a doctor's sick note/report. If you aren't sick enough to need to see a doctor then surely its a trivial claim/ailment.
