What is Travellers Diarrhoea?

Up to 70% of people who travel suffer from Travellers Diarrhoea, according to the Centre for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC).

  • Travellers’ Diarrhoea is characterised by fever, belly cramps and profuse watery diarrhoea that can last for several days and lead to severe dehydration.
  • Travellers’ Diarrhoea develops as a result of ingesting contaminated food and/or water and is common amongst travellers when visiting countries where they have no naturally developed immunity.
  • Infection with Enterotoxigenic E. coli is the most common cause of Travellers’ Diarrhoea.

Travellers’ Diarrhoea can really ruin your holiday or the effectiveness of a business trip. The devastating loss of your valuable time, money and memories can be disastrous.

Travellers diarrhoea is also often referred to as: Bali Belly, Montezuma’s Revenge, Delhi Belly, and Tourist Trot.
