HEALTH AND VACCINATIONS

DO I NEED TO GET ANY VACCINATIONS BEFORE I TRAVEL?

If you’re heading to places like Asia and Latin America, it’s likely you’ll need some vaccinations, pre travels. Run this by your GP or a Travel Specialist Doctor, or click here to find out if you require any vaccinations.

WHAT IF I HAVE MEDICAL CONDITIONS OR PHYSICAL DISABILITIES?

If you suffer from any form of medical condition, be sure to have an adequate supply of relevant medications prior to departing on your trip and advise us of any important medical conditions you may have at time of booking.

You’ll also need to flag any physical disabilities to us before you book your trip, otherwise we may be unable to proceed with your booking at a later stage. A lot of our trips require physical activities which may not be best suited to your needs. If your disability does require certain assistance, we need to ensure any special needs, services or accompanied-bodies are discussed at the time of booking. Contiki do not provide devices such as wheelchairs and will not be responsible on the failure of the person or able bodied companion/s to provide these services.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?

It’s super important to be prepared when it comes to your health, and this includes any medication you may need on the road, such as: antihistamines, antibiotics, or any additional precautionary tablets, creams, first aid kits, mosquito sprays, suncreams etc. Just make sure you pack all the important stuff in an easily accessible safe place, ideally in your hand luggage.

WHAT IF I GET SICK WHILE TRAVELLING?

Sickness is never ideal, but sometimes the inevitable happens when you’re on the road experiencing new foods and ways of life. Depending on the severity of your sickness, your Trip Manager will help you find any medicine or health requirements you may need. Taking out comprehensive insurance before travelling with Contiki is a must, and will ensure you are covered for any personal injury, medical expenses etc. that you may incur.

HOW CAN I KEEP HEALTHY ON THE ROAD?

It can be tricky to stay healthy when you’re constantly out and about (not to mention those late nights…), but it’s the key to ensuring you get the most from your travelling experience. Keeping an eye on what you're eating and drinking, how much movement you're doing, getting a decent amount of sleep and just knowing when enough is enough will do wonders for both your physical and mental health.
