Winter Sun Holiday Illness Hotspots

Winter Sun Holiday Illness Hotspots

If you’re planning a holiday abroad to catch some winter sun, falling ill will most likely be the last thing on your mind.

However, an increasing number of holidaymakers are returning from their winter resort holidays having been affected by outbreaks of illness.

In this article, we take a look at some of the winter sun holiday illness hotspots and offer advice on what you should do if you fall sick on holiday abroad.

Outbreaks of illness in Cape Verde

Last year the team at YourHolidayClaims was contacted by many holidaymakers whose stays in Cape Verde had been ruined by illness over the Christmas period.

Holidaymakers were affected by illnesses including salmonella and giardiasis, leaving them suffering severe symptoms of sickness and diarrhoea.

At YourHolidayClaims, our dedicated solicitors are currently helping people receive compensation for illness at package holiday hotels including:

  • Melia Dunas Beach Resort
  • Sol Dunas Beach Resort
  • Hotel Riu Touareg
  • Melia Tortuga Beach Resort

If your holiday has been affected by illness in Cape Verde, you should report your illness to your tour operator representative as soon as possible. They should be able to contact a doctor if you need to see one and complete a sickness form to make sure there is a record of your ill on holiday claim. If you have contracted sickness during your Winter getaway, learn more about how you can make a hassle free Cape Verde holiday illness claim.

Cases of cyclospora in Mexico

Over the winter months of 2016 and 2017, our legal experts at YourHolidayClaims were contacted by a number of people who had been diagnosed with cyclospora on holiday in Mexico.

Here at YourHolidayClaims, we are already helping holidaymakers receive compensation after outbreaks of sickness in all-inclusive hotels including:

  • Grand Bahia Principe Coba
  • Hideaway Royalton Riviera
  • Grand Oasis Cancun
  • Azul Sensatori
  • Dreams Riviera Maya

Cyclospora is caused by ingesting contaminated food or water and can lead to severe symptoms of sickness and diarrhoea.

If you have suffered symptoms of sickness and diarrhoea on holiday in Mexico for more than a few days, it is important that you seek medical attention as soon as you can.

If you do have to pay for any medical treatment or transport, keep receipts or a record of what you have paid for as this can be added to your final settlement if you choose to bring a claim for compensation against your tour operator on your return home. If your winter break in Mexico was marred by sickness, the experienced legal experts at YHC are here to provide reassurance and support throughout the process. Make sure you find out how you can make your Mexico holiday illness claim.
