300 million people worldwide suffer from allergies.
In the UK alone, there are 18.2 million allergy sufferers. That's 1 in 3 of the population. Not least, 40% of children suffer from an allergy, displaying symptoms such as a stuffy or runny nose, asthma, eczema, and persistent coughs.
Furthermore, many more people do not even realise that their asthma, rhinitis, stuffy nose, persistent cough, sore throat, eczema, conjunctivitis, tummy upset and diarrhoea, is in fact a symptom of a reaction to everyday allergens: the house dust mite, pets, mould, and foods such as wheat and dairy products, to name a few. Such allergens can be virulent in hotel rooms and hotel menus.
For those who do suffer these reactions to such everyday allergens, going away on holiday or just staying away from home on business, can be far from the relaxing experience that it should be.
We aim to change that, and give you a choice of accommodation worldwide where consideration has been given to your needs.
