Travellers booking cheap flights to Thailand and other popular destinations have been offered some advice on how to keep the sniffles at bay this winter.
Catching a cold or the flu can put a serious downer on holidays. However, according to one publication, there are a number of steps people can take to prevent the spread of germs.
Writing for the Mirror, Nigel Thompson noted that passengers should carry a bottle of hand sanitiser with them, which should be applied liberally and at regular intervals.
"Use antibacterial wipes. They can help in disinfecting anything you may rest your hands on, such as your tray table and arm rests," he added.
