Your holiday checklist

As mentioned previously, there are many factors that must be checked in preparation for your hard earned summer holiday. Not just whether or not your passport is still in date.

One example of what you need to check is whether or not you need to apply for a visa for your specific destination.

For many popular holiday locations such as Cape Verde, Cuba and the Dominican Republic, you will need to apply for a visa prior to your visit.

Therefore it is crucial that you look into your holiday destinations visa requirements or you run the risk of being refused entry, and therefore ending your holiday before its even begun.

In addition to this, another thing to consider is whether or not you need to be vaccinated against some of the major illnesses that can be contracted in other parts of the world.

Your health is paramount, therefore it is vital that you research into whether or not the country you are heading poses such threats.

Whilst on the topic of illness, the YHC team also advise that you stock up on basic medication prior to flying out on your holiday.

Medication can be more difficult to get hold of in a country that youre not familiar with, so it is better to be safe than sorry if you are unfortunate enough to be hit by sickness during your holiday.

Holiday illness hotspots

If you are amongst those who are yet to have decided on where to spend your summer 2018 holiday, this section may give you some food for thought.
