The Nomad Story
Starting out as a humble market stall, Nomad offered a range of kit for adventure travel. Passionate travellers, we tried and tested our offering at every opportunity
Finding much of the available travel kit to not meet the demands of the more adventurous tropical traveller, whose main concern is staying healthy, Nomad setup a first of it’s kind travel pharmacy & vaccination clinic in our North London flagship store
Bringing together a Pharmacy, clinic & well tested range of travel kit, we had created an unmatched one-stop service for travellers. Opening locations nationwide, we have been able to help thousands of travellers every year prepare for adventure
We’ve built a medical team comprising some of the leading academics and physicians in travel health, enabling us to create a truly comprehensive training programme for our travel nurses. You’ll always get the best possible advice, backed by the most up to date information
Always looking to innovate & simplify travel health for adventurers, we took our pharmacy online. It couldn’t be easier to get prescription travel medicines sent directly to you
From our leading medical executives, to our friendly store teams, we’re all passionate about travel and invested in getting you ready for your trip. Whether it’s a trek in Nepal, a relaxed break in the Caribbean or an around the world backpacking trip – you can rely on us to know what you’ll need
