Advice if you get Food Poisoning on Holiday

Causes of food poisoning and gastric illness on holiday include unhygenic food preparation methods, non-filtered water. It is very important to try to avoid foods that have been:

  • Not cooked thoroughly
  • Re-heated incorrectly
  • Not prepared hygienically
  • Not stored at the correct temperature
  • Left open to pests such as insects, birds and vermin

  • Symptoms of food poisoning can be felt hours or even weeks after eating these poorly prepared foods. HolidayRuined advises that you should drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration and get plenty of rest. There is often a range of oral rehydration medicines available from local pharmacies or a Doctors’ clinic.

    During sickness try avoiding alcohol, caffeine, fizzy drinks and spicy or fatty foods as these will only increase your discomfort.

    If you do unfortunately fall sick we advise that you seek medical attention whilst in your all inclusive resort as this will greatly increase your chances of making an eligible claim for your discomfort upon your return home.
