Travel Vaccines Guide

This Travel Vaccine Guide is an excellent resource for anyone, young and old, who are heading abroad. From the most common diseases around the globe to the importance of knowing (and getting) the right kind of inoculations before travelling, this resource offers plenty of essential information on travel vaccines and a must-read for every world traveller.

Health

Travelling will always require an element of caution when it comes to your health. Some common measures will help reduce the risk, however sometimes simply different water, food or just being in foreign environment can have the potential to confuse your body. Simple advice like eating well, wearing insect repellant and getting sufficient rest are all key to a healthy and safe holiday.

 

Taking care of your body on the flight to your destination is also just as important. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that occurs in a vein that is not on the surface of the skin. It can occur anywhere, but is most often seen in the thigh or calf. You can reduce the risk of developing a DVT by wearing compression stockings, moving your feet and legs as much as possible, and by drinking plenty of water in flight.

Festivals and Events

Festivals and events can be the highlight of your experience or have consequences such as sites and attractions closed due to public holidays or large crowds due to national holidays. Our experienced team is here to assist you with festival and event information should you wish to combine your experience with a cultural festivity or avoid it for a more peaceful experience. Email the team at  info@soulfulconcepts.com or call us for a chat on 1300 059 686.

Best time to visit your favourite destination

The best time to visit a destination isn’t easily summed up. Continents are vast and different regions have their own weather patterns and microclimates. Before you book, decide if you prefer the heat, or enjoy cooler weather; think about why you’re going – local culture, historical sights, trekking – and what the optimum conditions are to enjoy  (it’s likely you wouldn’t appreciate the splendour of the Taj Mahal during the monsoon, for example). Research the best time to visit a destination by selecting your month of travel and the continent you wish to travel to.
