Japp v Virgin Holidays

On 7 November 2013, the Court of Appeal gave judgment in Japp v Virgin Holidays [2013] EWCA Civ 1371. It confirmed that, when assessing whether holiday accommodation complies with “local standards,” the standards to be applied are those in force at the time the accommodation was built, and not those that apply at the time of any accident. It will be welcome finding for tour operators and their insurers.
