From Scotland to Cornwall, Britain has a lot to offer in terms of staycations. You can climb mountains, relax on sandy beaches, explore ancient castles, go camping or treat yourself at a hotel, the options are endless.

But, did you know, that with 1,400 pharmacies all over the UK, LloydsPharmacy is always here for you.

We're here for travel essentials

Make your holiday packing easy by reading our travel essentials guide, from sunscreen to insect repellent, we’ve got you covered. Order online before you go, you could even have them delivered to collect at a LloydsPharmacy at your holiday destination - simply choose click and collect at the check out.

Don’t worry if you forget to pack any essentials like toothpaste, tampons or body moisturisers, we can deliver next day or pop into a local store. Find the nearest store to your holiday destination here.

We're here for sunny days

If you’re going to be out in the sun all day – whether you’re on an excursion to the seaside, or simply strolling around enjoying the sites – take the necessary steps to prevent sunburn and sunstroke.

We're here for allergies

Summer season is also allergy season, so if you have hay fever or you’re allergic to insect bites, make sure you stock up on any medication you’ll need.

We're here for healthy holidays

Holidays are often about over-indulging, and while there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself, it’s important that you keep your health in mind during your staycation. In short: avoid eating too much junk food, drinking too much alcohol, and staying out in the sun for long periods.

If you’re going to have a barbecue, throw some veggies and lean protein on the grill (along with the steaks), and make sure you’ve stocked up on indigestion medication if you experience heartburn.

We're here for prescriptions

We know it can be hard to remember to order and collect your repeat prescriptions, especially when trying to organise for a holiday. Take away the stress by having your NHS repeat prescription delivered for free either to your home ahead of time or to your holiday destination with LloydsDirect, subject to eligibility. LloydsDirect will send you reminders when your prescription is running low.

For one off prescriptions, pop into a LloydsPharmacy with your signed and valid paperwork and we will dispense your medication for you.

We're here for the morning after pill

If your normal contraception has failed or you have had unprotected sex while on your staycation and feel that you need emergency contraception (the morning after pill), you can access this service in most stores or online.
