It is your responsibility to ensure that you are familiar with all of the recommended vaccinations and health precautions in good time before departure. Details are available from your GP surgery or local travel clinic and from the National Travel Health Network and Centre: www.nathnac.net. Information on health abroad is also available on www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Travelhealth.
You should ensure that vaccinations or preventative measures, such as malaria tablets, are taken early enough (which may be a month or more prior to departure). At the time of publishing this brochure, no vaccinations were required for visiting any of the Mediterranean countries featured in this brochure.
For holidays in the EU/EEA, you should obtain an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) prior to departure from their website: www.ehic.org.uk. The EHIC may entitle you to reduced cost, sometimes free, medical treatment in public hospitals and clinics while you’re in a European Economic Area, although restrictions apply. It should be noted, however, that the EHIC is not a substitute for travel insurance, which must be taken out before departure.
If you are undergoing any form of medical treatment, we recommend that you consult your GP in good time prior to departure and ensure that you take sufficient medication and corresponding prescriptions with you where necessary.
In some countries, the services and drugs provided may be of a different standard to that received in the UK. Please remember to pack any vital medication in your hand luggage.
Health requirements and recommendations may change, and you should check the up-to-date position in good time before departure.
