X v Kuoni Travel Ltd

Contract – Holiday. The appellant's appeal against the dismissal of her case against the respondent tour operator failed. The appellant had been raped by N, an employee of the hotel where she had been staying, following N offering to show her the way to the hotel reception. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the judge at first instance had been correct to hold that N's actions had not been part of the services which the defendant had agreed to provide, and hence the defendant could not be held liable.
