“Here at Hattons we have a dedicated team who can help at every stage of the process, and will provide the very best advice on how to get what you are rightfully owed. Basically, if your holiday has been ruined through no fault of your own, then you need to make sure you don’t let the opportunity pass when you return to the UK.
