Vaccinations are one of the most important things to take into consideration when travelling abroad. It is always necessary to ask your doctor if your destination requires you to be vaccinated before you leave. If you’re not sure you can always double with an online pharmacy like Lloyds or the NHS website. It is especially important to do this before you embark on your journey, as some vaccines can cause side effects such as stomach upset and soreness.
Once you have assessed which travel vaccinations you need, you need to take into account how much they will cost. Most vaccines are free on the NHS, but some aren’t. If you haven’t planned for this factor, it can lead to an unexpected dent in your travel budget. Common vaccines that are free of charge include cholera, diphtheria, hepatitis A, meningitis C and typhoid. However, vaccines for illnesses such yellow fever, rabies and tuberculosis may cost up to £150 each, depending on how many injections you require.
It is important to incur this expense, however, as vaccinations are an essential part of travelling and skipping them could put you in danger of becoming seriously ill. Depending on what type of travelling you are doing, you may need extra vaccinations. For example, people working in a medical setting or with animals whilst abroad are more at risk of contracting an infection.
You can get vaccinations from your local GP, but did you know they are also widely available at many pharmacies? Ask your local pharmacy for exact details of the vaccinations they stock, as it will vary from place to place. Getting your vaccination from your pharmacy can also often be faster than going through your GP as you can avoid waiting for an appointment.
If you are pregnant, you must always seek advice from your GP before having vaccines, as they may harm your baby’s development.
Whichever way you decide to get your vaccinations, they certainly are a travel essential for anyone.
The Costa Brava – the Wild Coast, so dubbed by a local journalist in 1908 – is an endless sequence of rocky shores, charming coves and extensive beaches stretching 200km, from just north of Barcelona in the northeast of Spain.

We pick some of our top trails and vistas in this spectacular island country
What’s the same size as Great Britain, with more sheep, fewer people and a climate that tends to keep its temperateness all year round?
That would be New Zealand, the Antipodean country whose popularity with tourists has enjoyed burgeoning success in recent years, thanks in no small part to the filming of The Lord of The Rings trilogy there, and the recent Rugby World Cup.
With plenty of cheap flights New Zealand bound and back there are certainly fewer financial impediments to travel than, say, 10 to 20 years ago. What is more, as a relatively small landmass – which has the greatest landscape variation in any one country – you can travel easily and take in a lot. (This can make it a more favourable prospect than big neighbour Australia.)
So where to go? How to do it? What to prioritise? One of the most popular ways of travelling both North and South Islands is by campervan. It’s an excellent idea for backpackers, couples and families alike, as it’s relatively cheap and will allow you to pack in as much as possible.
We’d recommend driving between some of NZ’s stunning national parks, then leaving the van and heading off on the country’s excellent trails and walks.
Monkey Creek in Fiordland National Park by edwin.11 on flickr
A must see is Milford Sound – the stunning glacier in Fiordland National Park on New Zealand’s South Island. Tucked on the lower south-western edge, it’s an incredible festival of natural wonders, with huge lakes, waterfalls, iconic peaks and stunning vegetation. We’d suggest dropping in on Queenstown along the way (it’s about a 5-hour drive to the park from there).
Back in Queenstown, head up to Lake Wakatipu for embarrassingly beautiful sunsets and imposing mountains overlooking the expanse of water. There are lakeside jaunts for those looking for a more relaxed walk, or mountainous treks for those looking to test themselves.
For North Island adventures, a lakeside retreat in Rotorua is a lovely contrast to the bracing airs of Milford Sound. With flat landscapes and delicately dappled lakes across the land, you can enjoy a more peaceful trail in one of the area’s lovely wooden lodges.
