Whilst on Holiday 69 million of us travel abroad from the UK annually. While Spain and France are the most popular destinations (about 36% of all visits)1, we are becoming increasingly adventurous about holidaying in further flung, more exotic locations. Holidays are usually a time to relax and enjoy ourselves but to do that we need to avoid the common pitfall of dehydration which can leave us with headaches, feeling tired, dizzy and grouchy2.
