HTML Question

How can one close HTML tags in Vim quickly?

It's been a while since I've had to do any HTML-like code in Vim, but recently I came across this again. Say I'm doing a simple bit of a HTML page:

<html><head><title>This is a title</title></head></html>

How do I write those closing tags for title, head and html down quickly? I feel like I'm missing some really simple way here that does not involve me going through writing them all down one by one. Of course I can use CtrlP to autocomplete the individual tag names but what gets me on my laptop keyboard is actually getting the brackets and slash right.
