Our story and ethical approach

ILS Travel Stores is brought to you by the International Location Safety team; worldwide experts in travel safety and security. With many years experience training people to travel and work safely in some of the most difficult environments, plus extensive personal experience travelling throughout the globe, the team have brought together their knowledge and experience to offer you the best travel gear there is on the market.

ILS Travel Stores helps you to make your travels safe. Having safe water to drink and being able to protect yourself from the deadly diseases carried by mosquitoes is vitally important. However, not everyone living in the countries you may visit can afford to protect themselves in this way. We are therefore very proud to operate a "Give back" system; every purchase you make will make a difference:

  • If you buy bite protection products, you will be helping to protect others from malaria
  • Buy water purifiers and hygiene products, and you will be helping to provide clean water and improved sanitation 
  • Buying First aid kits and health products will mean improved access to vaccinations and health facilities for others
  • And for all other items purchased, such as travel security equipment, you will help keep others safe through de-mining activities

So as well as protecting yourself, you will also be helping protect those who may not be able to afford to do the same.

It won't change the world, but we think it's the right thing to do- we hope you do too. Thank you!
