British holidaymaker contracts E. coli at the Tropicana Grand Azure Resort in Egypt

At Your Holiday Claims we have recently been contacted by a British holidaymaker whose husband contracted E. coli in Egypt.

The couple had travelled to the Tropicana Grand Azure Resort in Sharm el Sheikh.  The holiday was ruined as they both experienced severe stomach bugs during their stay.

We previously reported on the Tropicana Grand Azure Resort in October 2014 as outbreaks of sickness and diarrhoea affected hotel guests.

Visitors to the hotel had claimed that “Thomson are bang out of order for even letting us go there”.

Anne Thomson, Head of Travel Law at Your Holiday Claims, commented: “The current reports of illness at the Tropicana Grand Azure Resort are worrying.

“E. coli is most commonly contracted as a result of consuming food which has been contaminated with E. coli bacteria.  This often causes symptoms of nausea, headaches, stomach cramps, abdominal pain and diarrhoea which can often be bloody.

“Serious complications can follow – it is rare but can happen.  Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome or HUS can occur in cases where the E.coli O157:H7 strain is diagnosed – toxins get into the bloodstream and can cause injury to the kidney and sometimes kidney failure.

“I hope that the tour operators and hotel management will ensure that high standards of food hygiene and cleanliness are implemented and maintained at the Tropicana Grand Azure Resort in order to protect the health of all hotel guests.

“I would also encourage anyone who has fallen ill at this hotel to contact myself or a member of our holiday claims team for advice on the merits of making a claim for compensation.”

Following my family becoming ill on holiday and my 2 year old daughter becoming particularly unwell, I contacted Anne at Your Holiday Claims from an internet search to see what I could do in regards to bringing this to my holiday company’s attention.

Having never thought to have contacted a solicitor to pursue a claim for compensation before, I am glad that I instructed Your Holiday Claims to deal with my claim following a holiday illness I suffered during my stay in Egypt.

We are very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were not offered anything from the tour operator we had booked our holiday with.
