Over 2 million British tourists were struck down with food poisoning on holiday abroad in 2008, and many of those suffered norovirus or salmonella on board a cruise ship or in their holiday package hotel.  More tour operators than ever are being sued for compensation for holidays that are ruined, and medical expenses incurred after food poisoning on holiday. Tour operators have a responsibility to ensure the food you are served is prepared in clean and hygienic surroundings while you are on holiday to prevent food poisoning.

How to avoid holiday food poisoning

•   Only drink bottled water and avoid ice in drinks

•   Cold food should be cold and hot food should be hot.  If you have any doubts, don´t eat it

•   Never eat food that has been left out at room temperature for more than 1 hour

•   Avoid fruit unless you can peel it yourself

•   If you eat fish and shellfish make sure it is fresh and cooked through
