Simple steps to stay healthy on holiday

There are simple steps you can take to stay healthy on holiday, from keeping hydrated to protecting yourself properly in the hot sunny climates that Britons like to visit.

It’s easy to forget to take care of yourself when you’re having a good time, that’s why our expert holiday illness solicitors have put together some top tips to help you stay healthy on holiday this summer.

Get your vaccinations early

If you are travelling to a tropical area you may need travel vaccinations to protect you from illnesses including malaria and yellow fever.

You should investigate whether you will need vaccinations when you are booking your holiday and speak to your doctor as soon as possible to ensure you have plenty of time to receive the injections you need before travelling.

Take a good mosquito repellent

Diseases spread by mosquitoes has become national news after the Zika virus affected numerous countries in the Caribbean and the Americas.

Investing in a good mosquito repellent is always advised if you are travelling to any country where mosquitoes are likely to bite.

Keep yourself hydrated

Although it may sound like simple advice keeping hydrated in hot climates is vital to staying healthy on holiday this summer.

This is especially true if you begin to fall ill during your holiday. Sickness and diarrhoea are some of the most common symptoms of illness on holiday and it is vital to replace lost fluids to avoid suffering dehydration.

Stick to only bottled water

You should always stick to bottled water when on holiday abroad and avoid ice in drinks if you are unsure of the source of the water used.

Drinking contaminated water can lead to being affected by cryptosporidium, a parasite which infects the bowels causing severe symptoms of sickness and diarrhoea.

Check standards of food hygiene

Poor standards of food hygiene is one of the most common causes of illness on holiday, especially within busy all-inclusive hotels.

Make sure you avoid any food which you believe to be undercooked and any food that has been left out for long periods.

If you do notice any failings in food hygiene standards at your hotel you should raise this with your tour rep or the hotel staff.
