Michelle Hanton-Rhys jetted off to the ultra-all-inclusive Rixos Sharm el Sheikh with her husband and children in late October 2014 with high hopes for a memorable and fun-filled family holiday.

Unfortunately, Michelles Egyptian escape proved to be memorable for all the wrong reasons as just three days into the trip she began to experience crippling stomach cramps followed by diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting.

Speaking to the specialist solicitors at Holiday Illness Claims, Michelle vividly recalls feeling increasing unwell as the illness progressed and realised that it was imperative that she sought medical attention.

My blood pressure was 70/40 and I was close to passing out immediately prior to the visit of the doctor to our room.

He diagnosed gastroenteritis and placed me on a drip. I had to return again at 10pm that night for further treatment.

The doctor also administered antibiotics via the drip on each occasion. He also prescribed a cocktail of drugs that I had to take for the remainder of the holiday.

Michelle was to continue to suffer illness symptoms for 8 days of her holiday and remained unwell on her return to the UK.

Certain that poor hygiene on behalf of Rixos Sharm el Sheikh was to blame for her suffering, Michelle decided to pursue a no win, no fee claim for compensation with industry leaders Holiday Illness Claims.

Anne Thomson, head of travel law at Holiday Illness Claims handled Michelles case and secured £2,750 in a successful no win no fee gastroenteritis on holiday claim.
