Paul Goodyer, Nomad Founder and CEO, set off at just 17 on his first independent trip across Europe and into Northern Africa. He was away for ten months encountering some of the first overland companies and experiencing life with indigenous tribes. During this and subsequent extensive journeys through Africa and the Middle East, he learnt the pitfalls of being inadequately equipped and the misery of ill health whilst travelling. Nomad began on a market stall in Reading and has now grown to 10 stores all across the UK and our full offering showcased on this website.
Nomad shops are staffed with travel experts who are extensively trained to ensure our customers leave fully prepared for whichever adventure they have planned.

Specialist knowledge is also available for pregnant women and those with existing conditions including diabetes and HIV/Aids. With appointments easy to make either online at nomadtravel.co.uk/clinics or by phone on 01341555061 we really are the obvious choice for all of your travel health needs.
Nomad’s Travel Health Pharmacy has been providing customised group, expedition and individual solutions for medical kit requirements since 1990.
Our pharmacy professionals will ensure you are suitably equipped whatever your plans. The average GP is often reluctant to prescribe specialist medicines for travel, especially antibiotics or medicines for mountain sickness. It’s often hard to know what you really need in terms of medicines and first aid items. Nomad has the solution whether you are a gap year backpacker or heading off on a scientific expedition.
Our specialist staff will determine the appropriate contents for your weight limitations, level of training, supplies, medications, budget and environment. Your kit contents will be kept in a database so you can restock at short notice.
You can visit our E-pharmacy at nomadtravel.co.uk/e-pharmacy and browse our selection of anti-malarials, medical kits, prescription drugs and sterile equipment attended to by our expert Pharmacist.
We offer account client services to companies from a range of industries for both Travel and Occupational Health purposes.
Accounts can be set up quickly and easily and can be tailored to your requirements, please email your name and contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Karmi Farm is a Clinic Project funded by Nomad Travel. Near to Darjeeling, India is a small clinic which is ideally placed to help locals who would otherwise have a 3 hour walk to the nearest hospital. £2 from every med kit sold by Nomad is donated to help fund the care these people need and volunteers from our medical team also donate their time working for the clinic. Further information on this project and the positive impact it has is available at nomadtravel.co.uk/karmifarm
