Wilson v Best Travel [1993] 1 All ER 353

The claimant was injured when he fell through some glass patio doors whilst on holiday in Greece. The glass conformed to Greek safety standards but did not conform to British safety standards. The claimant brought an action against the travel agent asking for a term to be implied as a matter of law, that all accommodation offered by the defendant should conform to British safety standards.

Held:

The courts did not imply a term. Whilst this was a contract of a defined type, it was reasonable for the travel agency to ensure that all accommodation offered, no matter where in the world, conformed with British safety standards.
