Uk holidaymakers costing Cyprus hotels millions in false food poisoning scams

By in

The Cyprus Hotels Association (Pasyxe) has released figures claiming a 500% increase in the number of false compensation claims for food poisoning from UK tourists. Tourists are making the claims in an attempt to get easy money and have cost the Cyprus hotel industry over €5 million in the past two years. “Reported sickness levels in other resorts during the same period have remained steady and the issue is only associated with UK holidaymakers, which suggests that many of the claims may be exaggerated or fraudulent” the association said.
