What to do if you contract Weils disease on holiday

If you have unfortunately suffered symptoms including sudden headaches, muscular pain, nausea and vomiting on holiday, you could have been affected by Weils disease.

Weils disease is spread to humans by animals and is most common in destinations including the Caribbean and Egypt.

If you have been diagnosed with Weils disease on holiday, the specialist legal team at Your Holiday Claims can quickly identify whether you have a claim.

In our latest, article, we take a look at what you should do if you believe you are suffering from Weils disease on holiday abroad.

How do you contract Weils disease?

One of the most common causes of Weils disease on holiday is caused by drinking water that has been contaminated with the urine of infected animals.

The disease is usually passed from rats but other sources such as dogs and livestock can be the source of contamination.

Reporting your illness

If you begin to suffer symptoms such as headaches, muscular pain and nausea, it is important to report your illness to the hotel as soon as you can.

If possible, speak to your tour operator representative to report your illness. This will ensure that your tour operator has a record of your illness and can be used to support your claim.

Your hotel should arrange for a doctor to see you if you have suffered symptoms of Weils disease.

Speak to others at the hotel

If you have suffered Weils disease, it is likely that there will be more cases of the disease at your hotel.

By speaking to your fellow guests at the hotel, you may find others who have suffered similar symptoms of illness to you.

Here at Your Holiday Claims, we would always recommend that you exchange contact details with anyone who has a similar experience on holiday. This will allow you to bring a group holiday illness claim against the tour operator and can significantly strengthen your claim as it is much more difficult for the tour operator to deny liability.

Visit your GP on your return home

If you believe you have suffered Weils disease on holiday you should visit your GP on your return home. They will be able to carry out any necessary tests and provide any treatment you may need.
