Condoms on a holiday

Take condoms with you when you go on holiday. That way, you don’t have to go looking for them in shops and pharmacies you don’t know. Plus, you can be sure that you’ve got good quality condoms. Sometimes it’s difficult to get condoms in foreign countries and some foreign brands are unreliable.

Forgot your condoms?

You’re buying them at your holiday destination? Make sure they have the CE quality mark.

This means that the condom is approved and reliable. You can often buy condoms at a pharmacy or chemist.

Things to remember

  • Check the use by date on the condom packaging.
  • Store condoms in a cool, dark place, not anywhere warm, and certainly not in the sun.
  • Don’t put them next to sharp things, like razor blades, in your wash bag.
  • Be careful with sand, it can make condoms tear.
