Friends should look out for one another and make it a nightly ritual to check you are all carrying condoms.
Try and buy condoms before you go abroad, but if buying them when you're out there make sure they carry a CE mark and check the expiry date.
Sex with strangers is a serious risk as you do not know their history – you cannot tell if someone has an STI, so don't be talked into having unprotected sex.
Using the pill will protect you against pregnancy but not against infections such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, genital warts and HIV.
Condoms can be damaged if they come into contact with suntan lotion or baby oil.
