Egypt

Treasured memories?

With its unique ancient treasures, Egypt has special appeal as a holiday destination and most people return with happy memories. Sometimes though, the holiday can be ruined because of problems. It could be the hotel, the quality of food and water, hygiene, the state of the swimming pool, sewage smells, poor plumbing etc. There’s also the range of illness experienced on these holidays - Salmonella, Shigella, Cryptosporidium, serious gastric problems and, of course, Norovirus. In addition, we hear from holidaymakers who have suffered harassment, sexual assault or inappropriate behaviour.

The articles below should guide you on the risks of travelling to Egypt. If you are returning and have been affected by sickness, illness, assaults or any other holiday issues, please contact us.
