Summer holiday WARNING: Experts issue travel advice on vaccinations for foreign travel

Award-winning broadcaster Ben Fogle said: “People know I like going on extreme trips and undertaking challenges like climbing Everest, but I also love going on holidays with my family

“When we go on a family trip, of course we want to relax but we also want to explore the local surroundings.

“We like tasting local food, taking trips into nature and seeing the local wildlife, so it’s important we take our travel health seriously.

“Having contracted leishmaniasis – a disease caused by parasites and spread by sandflies – while abroad, I now always make sure I speak to a healthcare professional before I travel about the risks to which I might be exposed.”

It is estimated that a person should allocate around £75 for travel health precautions including travel health.

Travel insurance, sun cream, insect repellent and vaccinations should also be remembered.
