Planning ahead for a trip is necessary to deal with mild ailments such as diarrhoea, vomiting, sunburn and travel sickness.
Rehydration salts help to fight dehydration from diarrhoea, vomiting or heavy sweating.
Tablets that stop diarrhoea may be used when access to a toilet is limited.
A sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher is recommended to protect your skin from UV damage by the sun.
Nausea and dizziness from boats and planes may be reduced by travel sickness tablets or ginger supplements.
