Should I be worried about CO poisoning on holiday.....How can I stay safe on holiday
If you holiday in the UK then ask the hotel/cottage/caraven owner for an up to date gas safety record. In the UK they must by law have these done annually.
On the continent carbon monxocde alarms are not that common. For this reason we suggest you do take a suitable travel alarm with you.
Gas applicances can vary in their operation, and will almost certainly be different than those you have at home- make sure you read the operation instructions and are clear how they work. Ask the hotel staff or your holiday rep if you are unsure.
The symptomns of CO poisoning can easily be mistaken for other common holiday illnesses like food poisoning or a tummy bug, dehydration or mild sun stroke and even hangovers. The main symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure are: headaches, dizziness, nausea or vomitting and breatlessnes.
If you think there might be a leak discontinue any use of the gas equipment, turn off the gas, open windows and leave the area immediately into fresh air. Inform the holiday company/hotel owners immediately and seek qualified medical advice if you feel unwell.
