Hi there,
Can anyone recommend a good online shop to buy these nets from?

Thanks,
Kelly

Hi,

Have a look at http://www.nomadtravel.co.uk

I've bought loads of stuff from them which I've always found to be good quality.

Nomad's good quality. Be sure to buy an impregnated one, though (but maybe Nomad doesn't even sell clean ones).

You rarely need mosquito nets. If you would need one, it's usually provided by the hotel/hostel you are staying at.

If you are planning to stay budget in places like India or Cambodia or Thailand, then take one - it'll save you being scoffed at night. But I would also add vitamin B12 and garlic to your diet, it helps keep the critters from biting too much.

Oh and always buy repellent from the country you are in.

Actually I think it is worth taking one - I find that a fair few of the nets provided had holes in and I doubt whether they were impregnated. I bought mine from Nomads too.

Hi Andy,
I've found that budget places often don't have nets and I've had problems fitting them before. You can get a fitting kit from Blacks.
Have fun!
