Leave the planning to us!  We have the essential travel kit all wrapped up.

Us Brits spend most of the year saving and counting down to our holidays but all too often our annual 'escape' is thwarted by unwelcome ailments such as sunburn, tummy troubles and insect bites. If you are going to be ill, the last place you want this to happen is in a foreign country with an unfamiliar language and different medicines.

This year, ensure it doesn't happen.  We've shopped around and compiled a list of the cheapest essential holiday products, under one roof.  Tesco stores has all your travel needs covered and the highest quality products at the most reasonable prices. 

Holiday Shopping List

Sun cream
Be safe in the sun with Tesco's huge selection of sun preparations and after sun lotions including ranges specifically created for kids and sensitive skins. Prices range from £1.99 - £4.99.

Insect repellent
Ouch! Beat the buzz factor... and soothe stings with Tesco's own range of insect repellents and soothing solutions. With stick, pump spray and even wipe formats, there's also products specifically formulated for kids! Prices range from £2.49 - £3.29.

Diarrhoea tablets
Too many mixtures? Settle holiday tummy with Tesco Diarrhoea relief tablets (£3.19) and Kaolin and Morphine Mix £1.05 for 200ml (£53p/100ml).

Deal with minor accidents to family and friends quickly and easily, courtesy of Tesco's state of the art Travel First Aid Kit (£3.99).

Freshen up! Who wants to pack half used soap and squidgy toothpaste when you can unwrap fresh new toiletries at unbeatable prices courtesy of Tesco? You'll find a huge selection of holiday essentials including soap, shower gel, deodorant, toothpaste, moisturiser, shampoos and conditioners.

Travel Information
Tesco Pharmacies offer a free computerised information service called 'Traveller,' a custom-made information service that covers every country in the world as well as over 2500 holiday resorts.

Simply tell the pharmacist which country you wish to visit and when you want to travel. Within a few minutes, the Traveller computer will produce an up-to-date, medically endorsed information sheet which has been tailor-made for your journey.

As well as medical advice, the information sheet will include general facts and information on the country, time differences, currency advice, visa requirements for entry and the latest travel advice, updated on a monthly basis, which has been issued by the Foreign Office.
