This Easter, Boots is making travelling and holiday prep a breeze with its Click & Collect service, available at stores in all major airports, train stations and holiday locations across the UK. With travel stores seeing sales up 136% year on year*, Boots is on hand with travel essentials for all of the family, at great value prices. 

Whether you’re jetting off overseas or taking a train for a staycation or day trip with the family, the Boots Click & Collect service can help you arrive stress-free. Available at 15 airport stores and 18 train station stores across the UK, customers can order their holiday essentials at home on and collect their shopping from their chosen location. 

Travelling by plane? No hold luggage, no problem. Boots customers travelling with only hand luggage can wave goodbye to issues with the 100ml liquid rule. The Boots airside Click & Collect service means you can race through check-in and security, before collecting your pre-ordered essentials at the conveniently located Boots store before you board. A huge 360,000 products were picked up and taken overseas as part of the Boots Click & Collect airport service in 2022. Simply order your favourite health and beauty products at at least 5 days before you fly, pick them up and hop on the plane, what could be simpler?   

Travelling by train? Click & Collect is a great option for staycations and day trips too, with customers able to pick up essentials for all of the family at train stations or the local Boots store in their holiday destination. Save lugging heavy toiletries across the country and instead order what you need before your trip and collect them simply and easily at your chosen location. 

Floss Walton-Bateson, Managing Director of Travel Stores at Boots said: “We understand that the run up to a holiday or organising a day out with the children can be hectic and we’re delighted to be able to help customers enjoy a stress-free start to their Easter plans.
