Get the right travel health insurance for your destination and the activities you’re planning to take part in. You will need to de-clare any pre-existing medical condition in order to get the correct cover. An European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) entitlesyou to free or reduced rate medical care in most EU countries. You can apply for one online (www.dh.gov.uk), by phone (0845606 2030) or by post using a form from the Post Office. N.B. The EHIC is not a substitute for adequate holiday insurance.
Pack a first aid kit (a sterile kit of emergency equipment may be a good idea if you are going somewhere remote).
Find out about the region you are travelling to. The Foreign Office website contains information and advice on travel abroad,and advice on specific risks in specific countries (www.fco.gov.uk).
If you are suffering from fever or infection you should inform your health professional on the day you visit for your vaccinations.
