Marsa Alam

Have you suffered from Holiday Sickness when you’ve been on holiday in Marsa Alam or immediately after you’ve returned home from Marsa Alam?
Marsa Alam is a southern Egyptian resort that is becoming very popular due to its picturesque beaches and coral reefs.  Many holiday makers arrive at Marsa Alam looking to enjoy the facilities at one of the growing number of hotels, providing a range of facilities and dining options.
Common sickness reported in Marsa Alam 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 Marsa Alam 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 Marsa Alam:

  • 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 food
  • 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.
