Holiday Hotel Watch

Food poisoning and holiday sickness can occur when travelling with one of the UK’s reputable tour operators such as Thomson Holiday; Thomas Cook; First Choice or Virgin. Holiday illness can be caused by bacteria or parasitic infections including E. Coli, Salmonella, Cryptosporidium or Campylobacter. Complaints to tour operators representatives often results in excuses such as ‘change in climate’, ‘sun stroke’ or ‘over indulgence.’

Cryptosporidium Fact: The waterborne parasite Cryptosporidium usually causes an acute but self-limiting diarrhoeal illness. The illness caused, known as, Cryptosporidiosis, can last for 1-2 weeks, but symptoms often reoccur without appropriate treatment from a doctor.
