Consumer view: Brits blame tour operators for holiday illness

Brits who suffer from travellers’ diarrhoea (TD) on holiday would avoid booking again with the tour operator they were with at the time, according to a new survey. The study, which included 3,000 participants and was conducted by Bimuno TRAVELAID, found that 56% of Brits would be deterred from using the holiday company again and 9% would immediately blame the holiday company they travelled with for falling ill. Around a fifth said they would blame the hotel or accommodation itself. Six in 10 adults claimed to have been ill on holiday with TD was the most common illness (43%). Despite some passing the blame onto holiday companies, a third of those surveyed said they would not visit certain countries altogether for fear of being ill. Destinations cited included Africa, India, Pakistan and Egypt.
