About Us

Hi, Welcome to TravePharm.com!

A travel website for travellers ran by a traveller.

Welcome! My name is Andy and I run TravelPharm.com. I hope you stick with me whilst I tell you a bit about myself and our small independent specialist company!

To say that I like Travel and travel medicine is an understatement, I love Travel and Travel Medicine! I started my travelling days back whilst I was studying pharmacy at the University of Brighton. One summer a friend I packed our rucksacks last minute and flew to Central America where we spent 7 weeks working our way from Mexico City to San Jose, Costa Rica. This was shoestring travel – no frills with only a 37-litre rucksack! I saw Mayan temples, slept in hammocks, cruised on idyllic saltwater lakes, surfed in the pacific, relaxed on amazing Caribbean Sea beaches and attempted to learn Spanish along the way! I was bitten by the travel bug.

My next trip was 2 years later. Round the world with only a marginally larger rucksack! I went to South America, the Pacific Islands, New Zealand, Australia, South East Asia, Japan, China and finally South Africa!

As I was a qualified pharmacist I fused my passion and my job and started providing travel services in branch, and I did this for 8 years before the opportunity to run TravelPharm.com arose! I still travel but with young children my travel destinations are different and I don’t travel for as long (unfortunately!).

I hope you all look forward to the exciting ideas I am bringing to Travelpharm and that everyone enjoys their experience!

Travelpharm.com is a leading online supplier of travel medicines for all holidays whether they be, adventurous, relaxing, long or short, you can always rely on Travelpharm.com to provide a high quality service with medicines and accessories at incredibly good prices!

Our low cost guarantee means we regularly compare and monitor our competitor's prices to our own. Some will give an all in price, some will do free delivery and some charge for a consultation. Typically we charge a fair price on our medicines, sometimes a small consultation fee, and a small amount for carriage if under £29, but overall we think you will not find prices that are cheaper than ours!!
