No doubt there's plenty of options... here's what I'm using:

I have the following function in one of my standard function libraries:

function redirect($url, $timeout)
        echo "<meta http-equiv=\"Refresh\" content=\"$timeout; url=$url\">";

$url being where you want to redirect to and $timeout being the delay 
before the redirection takes place (set it to 0 for immediate redirect).

Then when I want to do a redirection on a page I just use this:

redirect("http://www.some.place.else/";, "5");

I've found this particularly useful in situations where you want to let people 
know you're doing a redirection somewhere or want to display some sort 
of message before the redirection takes place.

No doubt there's other solutions, there usually is.
