Make sure you have a basic first aid kit and essential medicines.

For some this might be a bit obvious, for others not so much. Depending on where you’re visiting, the accessibility to medicine might be greatly different to what you’re used to so make sure you have the essentials with you. You never know when something might happen so it’s best to have things at hand rather than having to go find somewhere that you can buy them from. 

Even if you don’t usually get headaches or other such ailments, it’s worth having the necessary items with you so that your holiday isn’t spoiled unnecessarily.

Recommended items to include:

  • Paracetamol/Ibuprofen
  • Plasters/Band-aids
  • Diarrhoea relief
  • Constipation relief
  • Indigestion tablets (if you’re prone to indigestion)
