With its Mediterranean weather, endless beaches and varied nightlife, Spain has been a favourite destination for millions of holidaymakers for years. In 2013, over 15 million people travelled to Spain from the UK alone. Holidaymakers travelling to Spain should be able to enjoy everything from lazy beach resorts and historical ruins to water sports and wild nightlife, unfortunately many Spanish getaways are ruined by sickness.
Spain is home to many popular all-inclusive resorts most of which can claim good standards of safety and hygiene; however there are unfortunate exceptions where cases of poor standards and avoidable holiday sickness have been reported.
Holiday Sickness Claims have dealt with many cases of holiday sickness in Spain including Salmonella, Campylobacter, E. Coli and Shigella. With reported symptoms including diarrhoea and vomiting, some visitors have reported low standards of hygiene, dirty swimming pools and undercooked food. Suffering from sickness on an all-inclusive holiday to Spain will obviously affect your health but can also leave holidaymakers out of pocket from costly medical treatment.
Although all holiday makers visiting Spain are advised to drink only bottled water, poorly maintained swimming pools can also lead to serious stomach sickness such as Gastroenteritis as a result of contracting Cryptosporidium.
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.
It is your tour operators’ responsibility to make sure you are provided with a safe, clean and hygienic hotel.
