Abstract
An increasing number of travellers cross international borders and is exposed to arthropod-borne diseases. Primary care physician should not only know and give advice on preventive measures, but also estimate the risk to an individual traveller. Personal protective measures are an important and sometimes the only way to prevent arthropod-borne diseases. Personal protective measures are maximised by using an integrated approach that includes physical (e.g. clothing, bed net) and chemical barriers (e.g. repellents, insecticides).
