About Nomad Travel
NOMAD, the LEADERS IN TRAVEL CLOTHING, EQUIPMENT,
VACCINATIONS & MEDICAL KITS SINCE 1990
Nomad® have been pioneers in the art of travel preparation since 1990. But this wasn’t the true beginning; Paul Goodyer, 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 bad travel health.
In addition, Prof. Larry Goodyer, Pharmaceutical Director for the Nomad Pharmacy is one of the leading international pharmacist experts in the field of travel medicine and a Fellow of the Faculty of Travel Medicine at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, Glasgow. He is currently the Vice Chair of British Travel and Global Health Association and until 2011 was the Chair of the Pharmacist Professional Group of the International Society of Travel Medicines. His current position is Professor of Pharmacy Practice and Head of the Leicester School of Pharmacy at De Montfort University.
This is the true foundation of Nomad®.
Today Nomad® work with diverse travel related businesses including BBC Natural History and Travel productions, London Fire Brigade International Rescue, tour operators from the gap year sector through to adventure holiday companies – all alongside the independent traveller.
Paul Goodyer is a member of the Royal Geographic Society and regularly participates as a speaker in their expedition Explore Weekend. For the last 4 years he has been a judge at the Wanderlust World Guide Awards and has lectured many times to GP practice nurses and pharmacy students on the rigours and risks travellers undertake when away.
Nomad® now produce their own range of ready-made travel medical kits, insect repellents, travel equipment and clothing. But the Nomad USPs are unmatched - pharmacy services which produce custom medical kits for anything from a school trip to Europe to a film crew working in the depths of the Congo jungles and the vaccination clinic services run from each of their eight outlets around the country.
The message is simple - get it right first time, prepare for your travels with Nomad.
