You've always got your head in the clouds. You don't need a travel firm.I won't be using this firm again thats for certain http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3084702/Blood-money-Thomas-Cook-demanded-won-3-5-million-payout-children-s-Corfu-villa-gas-deaths-help-protect-image.html
i'd be pretty outraged if it was my kids .Im not sure what they are supposed to have done, TC are not responsible for the accident and in the corporate world an apology is often akin to admitting culpability
The company has refused point-blank to apologise and instead tried to shift all the blame on to Greek hoteliers and maintenance men.
I rather think they are the guilty partys,
TC can perhaps be held responsible for not ensuring the hotel was of a high enough standard, but would it really have had sufficient access to assess the air conditioning plant.
Another "Nasty business" poor Pleb outrage story.
The assumption is that TC knew the bungalow was a death trap - since their employees were cleared at trial I would argue they didn't, in which case no reasonable person could argue they knowingly allowed it.i'd be pretty outraged if it was my kids .
And TC could have waved the offer or handed it to the parents for them to decide what to do with it ,and lastly if they are allowing people to holiday in effectively gas chambers they in the eyes of most sane people ARE responsible ,instead they just kick the can down the road knowing these 'plebs' will end up bankrupting themselves trying to fight them .
The moral of the story here of course is if you want a cheap getaway you get the trappings with it !
May I suggest a team of lawyers expert in libel law? Slightly left of field, I know, but when various people suggest that a few simple applications of common sense on your part might have avoided the catastrophe, your lawyers can take them to the cleaners while some tabloids simper in a sympathetic manner. Or something like that.My husband and I took a TC holiday to Praia De Luz and it ended catastophically. I DEMAND compo and whom do I contact?
If I may expand on this with the suggestion that you set up a small business but gently imply that its to assist in rectifying the catastrophe. It helps if you leave people with the notion its a charity - but whatever you do don't say that, just don correct anybody.May I suggest a team of lawyers expert in libel law?

They couldn't give the money to the family, as it would set a precedent; so giving it to charity is exactly what they should have done. I'm sure their PR mongs said as much.Just wait until M**snet wake up to this - TC will suddenly decide to donate £3.5m "to a kids charity"
