Falling ill whilst on holiday is never nice - what was supposed to be a relaxing time away from the stresses of everyday life can quickly turn into a horrifying experience.
According to the Association of British Insurers over 4,300 people require medical treatment abroad every week. This figure doesn't take into consideration those that self-medicate so the overall number of people taking medication abroad is likely to be even higher.

These types of illnesses produce a range of symptoms such as vomiting, nausea, a fever, diarrhoea and stomach cramps.
