Sell a holiday from hell story for the highest fee possible, just like Adam did…

Adam Szubanski contacted Talk to the Press by filling out a story form on our website

Reporter Isolde Walters telephoned him and heard about his holiday from hell.

Adam explained that he had been on a family holiday to Mexico when he decided to take his three teenage sons on a family expedition into the jungle. It was a trip arranged through his hotel and he was assured it was perfectly safe.

Adam and his boys climbed into a buggy to drive through the jungle but just ten minutes later the vehicle flipped over. Thankfully Adam’s sons were safe but he was thrown from the buggy and lost two fingers in the crash.

Isolde was horrified by what Adam had been through especially when he told her that his insurer had refused to pay out because they claimed the vehicle was not covered by his policy.

She got down all the details, wrote a memo and asked Adam to send pictures and emails from his insurer as proof to back up his story.

Supplying stories to every major publication

She sent the story to our contact at The Star On Sunday who was just as moved as she was by Adam’s experience.

We negotiated a substantial fee for Adam and his story was published as a page lead in the Sunday paper.

With Adam’s agreement, Isolde then sent his story to our news wire where it was picked up by the Daily Mail and even America’s Fox News.

Isolde ensured that Adam was paid each time his story was published.

Sell a holiday from hell story to both newspapers and magazines

After selling a story to the Daily Mail and The Star on Sunday, the next week Isolde arranged a magazine deal for Adam’s wife Michelle to tell the story from her perspective.

Isolde secured a substantial fee from Real People magazine for Michelle.

Although nothing could bring back Adam’s fingers, he was happy with the coverage that Talk to the Press had secured in the national press.

The story raised much-needed money and also awareness. Other holiday goers would be aware of the pitfalls of travel insurance.
