No matter what type of journey or trip you're planning, there will be a Pyramid product that can enhance it! From keeping mosquitoes away with their premium nets and sprays to keeping your hands and equipment free from germs and other harmful bugs.
Here at Travelpharm our Pyramid travel products range is broken down into three key areas of travel, Mosquito Nets, Repellents and Hygiene.
When it comes to mosquito nets, you can't get any better than Pyramid! Why? We are glad you asked!
Designed for use in the most extreme conditions, Pyramid Mosquito Nets offer ultimate protection from mosquitoes and other biting insects.
The Pyramid MosinetBed Pop-Up Mosquito Net is a self-supporting, strong and secure mosquito net is ideal for use in high-risk malaria countries. It comes in both double and single bed options. If the bed or accommodation does not suit a domed-style mosquito net then you might want to consider the Pyramid Mosquito Wedge Net. Again it comes in a double or single, but this net is more suited for use in tents or when bedding down outdoors.
If your Pyramid net is impregnated with Permethrin, the Zi Technology Fabric Impregnation provides protection for up to 2 years (or 35 washes). All the nets are manufactured from high quality 100% polyester mesh and most of the nets are comprised of 300 hole mesh, which is double the recommended WHO standard!
If you are planning on a backpacking holiday or gap year travel that requires you to sleep in multiple hostels and other places where bed hygiene might be questionable, then you might need more protection than just your sleeping bag! While your sleeping bag may provide some barrier between yourself and an overused bed, you might want to consider using the Pyramid Bed Bug Guard Bedsheet & Pillow Case. Made from tough, lightweight polyester, this Permethrin impregnated bed and pillow cover effectively kills or deters insects!
It's not just at night when you need to keep yourself protected if you're travelling about in the day you might need additional protection. The Pyramid Mosquito and Midge Head Net that fits over any headgear and can be secured around the neck with the adjustable cord to prevent mosquito, midges or any other biting insects. This lightweight net comes in its own travel case and is ideal for travelling in tropical regions or areas of Scotland.
As with all of these mosquito net products, practice putting them up and taking them down BEFORE you travel. Not only will these make life much easier for you once on holiday, but it is also a chance to run your eye over the product to ensure it is in full working order!

As well as using adequate netting and repellents, you also need to consider your clothing. Long-sleeved shirts and trousers will increase the chances of you not getting bitten when travelling in high-risk malaria countries. It also goes without saying that any journey into a malaria-risk area will require some form of malaria prevention medication! Not all anti-malaria tablets are suited to all destinations, so check out our full range of Anti-Malaria Tablets or if you need further advice, Speak To Our Pharmacist.
Hygiene & Sanitisation:
The last thing you want on your trip or holiday is to get ill! Sometimes, water will not be available in order to keep yourself or your gear clean. Luckily for you, Pyramid has your back!

Keeping your hands clean and free from germs is all well and good, but if you don't think about the objects and surfaces you come into contact with, then it will all be for nothing! The Surface Spray is great for use in toilets and bathrooms or when using a public or communal equipment and items. It can also be used for food preparation, simply spray the surface and wipe it down.
