Have you suffered from Holiday Sickness when you’ve been on holiday in Hurghada or immediately after you’ve returned home from Hurghada?
With dozens of private hotel beaches and hundreds of hotels and restaurants, Hurghada City is one of Egypt’s busiest all-inclusive holiday destinations. Unfortunately many holidaymakers don’t get to enjoy the regions stunning views and coral filled waters due to their all-inclusive holiday being spoilt by sickness.
Common sickness reported in Hurghada include various forms of food poisoning including Salmonella and E. coli. These sicknesses can cause diarrhoea, stomach pains, fever and dehydration. A common cause of contracting these sicknesses in a resort as popular and as busy as Hurghada is the handling of infected currency. Due to high temperatures and the fact that Egyptian money stays in circulation for a long time, it isn’t unlikely for it to not only carry infection but also have an unpleasant smell.
Undercooked food and poor food hygiene in general has also been reported as the cause of many holiday sicknesses in the region and all holidaymakers must be sure to follow these guidelines when travelling in and around Hurghada:

  • Use only bottled water for drinking and brushing your teeth.
  • Frequently use an alcohol-based hand gel.
  • Avoid Ice as it may have been made from tap water.
  • Avoid street
  • Avoid salads and any uncooked fruits and vegetables (these may have been handled unhygienically)

In the event that you do get ill Holiday Sickness Claims advise that you seek medical attention whilst on holiday as this will greatly increase your chances of making an eligible claim upon your return.
Whilst ill it is important that you drink plenty of bottled water and use rehydration salts when possible. It is advised that you take rehydration salts with you on your trip along with some other essentials such as Cipro (fights bacteria in the body) Imodium (treats the symptoms of Diarrhoea) and a thermometer to measure your temperature.
It is your tour operators’ responsibility to make sure you are provided with a safe, clean and hygienic hotel.
