Swimmers and Travellers Tips

  • Leave plenty of time to get to the airport / port by the stated check-in time. Please check your vehicle, traffic conditions and / or the running of public transport before you leave.
  • Make sure that you take all necessary documents with you and ensure that your passport, visas, vaccinations and health requirements are up to date and conform to local regulations.
  • If you need to take regular medication, make sure you have enough with you to last your holiday and any delays that may occur. You should also take a spare supply packed separately from your main supply in case you lose your first supply.
  • If you are taking valuable belongings on holiday such as jewellery or a camera you should consider covering them under your household contents insurance. Many insurance companies agree to extend the cover to include valuables whilst on holiday.
  • Do not pack valuables, money, electrical equipment or fragile items into check-in baggage. Keep these items with you at all times.
  • Never leave your belongings unattended or with strangers, especially on beaches or at airports, nor in vehicles.
  • Carry cash only for immediate requirements and use travellers cheques or credit cards wherever possible. Also, use safety deposit boxes if there are available.
  • Check your baggage for damage each time you reclaim it.
  • We recommend that you drink bottled water whilst abroad. Even in relatively safe places your body will not be used to the local tap water.
  • Make sure you avoid ice in your drinks.
  • The sun abroad can be much more powerful than you are used to at home, particularly if you are on the water. To prevent sunburn and sunstroke, stay out of strong sunlight and drink plenty of (bottled) water.
  • Think before you dive into swimming pools and the sea. Check the depth and for dangerous objects in the water. Do not drink alcohol and swim.

50 ways to save on your holidays

Richard Browning

SCHOOLS are clamping down on parents who take their children on holiday during term time. At best, to get permission for even one extra day off at either end of a holiday requires a degree of form filling and letter writing that wouldn’t be out of place in a Soviet police station. Even then, the final decision rests on the whim of the chairman of governors. While the difference a day makes to a child’s education is unquantifiable, it can add thousands of pounds to the price of a family holiday. But with this option of saving money virtually outlawed, how do you stick within the rules without breaking the bank?

Here are some examples from the article on how to save money on your holiday. Visit “Holiday Money” to read the holiday article in full.

10. Check back later Travel agents and internet users can reserve flights and holidays for several days without purchasing them. So if at first you find a deal is unavailable at the price you want to pay, you have a choice: pay the higher price or wait a few days to see if the places become available again.

11. Sign up for special offers by email. Any airline or travel agent worth its reputation has a service that allows you to hear about the deals first. Choose a few of your favourites and sign up. You could access big savings for a few minutes’ effort.

12. Go camping The rise of the no-frills airlines has spawned a craze in ultra-low-cost holidays. You can buy a camping kit for a family of four including tent, mats and sleeping bags for sometimes less than £100. You book your flights to somewhere preferably with insignificant annual rainfall and then pay a few pounds a night to sleep under the stars. And remember: campsites abroad are often much better equipped than those in Britain.

Rent a dream villa, self catering apartment or luxury chateau in France direct with the owner – On offer are apartments in Paris, luxury villas for rent in Cote d’Azur or rent a castle – the choice is yours.

27. Find a low-cost insurance policy online Your travel agent – online or High Street – will try to flog you insurance. Just say no. Go online or talk to a broker and you’ll find single-trip European policies for less than £10 per person. If you’re going away more than once in the year, consider an annual policy. Just make sure you understand what you need and read the small print. Tip: single-trip policies cover you for cancellation as soon as you take out the policy even if your travel dates are months ahead. This is not the case for annual policies, which start from the day you take

28. Shop around for your European breakdown cover We’ve all heard of the AA and RAC but it’s only insurance and any number of companies offer the same type of policies for significantly less money.

29. The packed lunch trick If you’re flying no-frills, you can pay several pounds for an in-flight sandwich and drink or you can take your own. With some of these low-cost deals, the cost of your food can be more expensive than the cost of your flights. There’s a principle at stake here more than just a free lunch.

30. Take the coach According to a This is Money survey, petrol will have to reach £10 a litre before we start leaving our cars at home in any great numbers. Until then public transport is always going to find it hard to compete. But coaches are pretty luxurious these days and at the time of writing, megabus.com is offering intercity fares throughout the UK from 50p, with £1 fares available during the Christmas holidays.

34. Control your holiday spending without doing a thing Did you know that most credit card providers charge up to 2.75% commission every time you use the card abroad? A similar sting applies if you use your debit card abroad. One exception is Nationwide, which charges no such commission.

35 Email us your tips There are hundreds more tips for families to cut the cost of their holidays. Send us yours and, if they’re appropriate we’ll add them to the list. There’s a prize for the best one.

35. Beware the mobile phone sting Do you know how much it will cost you to make and receive mobile phone calls abroad? Check your contract – at up to £1.49 a minute you may want to leave the phone at home.

36. Don’t use the Heathrow Express The return rail fare for a family of five from London Paddington to Heathrow airport is more than £130. Using the Underground and the little-known One Day Family Travel card will set you back around £20.

Pollution and Holidays

When it comes to monitoring beaches for pollution, some countries are better than others.

Shark tales make bigger headlines, but water pollution is far more common—and a greater threat to humans than the creature depicted in Jaws ever was. In the United States, fouled swimming water is responsible for tens of thousands of beach closings and health advisories every year. Although there is still no uniform federal protocol for testing water quality at beaches, information on water cleanliness at most of the nation’s public swimming beaches can be found on the Environmental Protection Agency’s site. Outside the United States, however, travellers are largely left to fend for themselves.

Most pollution at swimming beaches is caused by bacteria associated with fecal contamination. Some of these bacteria are harmless, but they are often accompanied by more pernicious pathogens, including E. coli, salmonella, giardia, and enteroviruses that cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, and other extremely unpleasant symptoms for the millions of swimmers who are exposed to them every year. Though rare, cholera, hepatitis, and typhoid fever are among the more serious water-borne maladies found at beaches around the world.

50 ways to save on your holidays

Richard Browning

SCHOOLS are clamping down on parents who take their children on holiday during term time. At best, to get permission for even one extra day off at either end of a holiday requires a degree of form filling and letter writing that wouldn’t be out of place in a Soviet police station. Even then, the final decision rests on the whim of the chairman of governors. While the difference a day makes to a child’s education is unquantifiable, it can add thousands of pounds to the price of a family holiday. But with this option of saving money virtually outlawed, how do you stick within the rules without breaking the bank?

Here are some examples from the article on how to save money on your holiday. Visit “Holiday Money” to read the holiday article in full.

1. Book early It may seem obvious but the holiday industry is like any other business affected by the basic economics of supply and demand. The best time to book, according to travel agent Trailfinders, is 11 months before you’re due to travel. The flights have just been released and there’s plenty of cheaper seats available.

2. Book late The rules of supply and demand also apply in last few days before the departure date. If there are unsold seats and hotel rooms, you can bag a bargain with a few clicks of the mouse, or a phone call or two.

3. Buy a package The internet has been a godsend for people who wish to bypass the travel agent and arrange their own trips. But here’s a little-known tip: if you are booking a flight and a car, or flight and accommodation, by packaging the two deals together, an agent can often offer a much better deal than if you were to book separately, even online. Call it creative accounting if you will, but it can save hundreds of pounds on a long-haul trip.

Worldwide Holiday Homes feature 1,000 holiday homes in 51 countries across the World including France, Australia and USA. Book direct with the owner and receive experienced advice about the location and holiday accommodation.

16. Interail Again, not just for gap-year students. There are many European and country-specific rail schemes to enjoy. If you’re really savvy you can travel on the overnight trains with your own cabin to avoid booking a hotel.

17. Think about cheap hotel chains In Britain, there’s Travelodge and Holiday Inn Express among others. In France there are tons of them dotted all over the country with rooms for three people from less than £20 a night. They’re close enough to all the major tourist areas to make it a real viable option for the cost-conscious francophile.

18. Do your own research online You don’t have to pay a fortune or spend years trawling the globe for the hidden gems. Just log on one or more of the travel websites and read the views of previous guests. Remember: cheap doesn’t have to mean nasty.

40. Beware the passport photo ‘scam’ The rules on passport photos are now so strict that if you use a photo booth it may take three or four attempts, around £14, before you get two pictures that obey all the rules on size, reflection, smile and head size. So forget the booths and go to a photographer who specialises in passport photos. You can refuse to pay if the pictures are no good.

41. The foreign school holiday trick When travelling abroad, check out the timings of the school holidays in the country you are visiting. In France, the school summer holidays end before they do in the UK. If you can wait a few weeks longer than normal before going away you will find that rates in holiday accommodation drop dramatically since you are no longer in their peak period. You will need to book direct with the French operator and make sure you have the school uniform laid out ready for school the morning after you return.

42. Beat the fly-drive system When taking a fly-drive holiday in Florida many of the package deals include a ‘compact’ car. When collecting your car from the hire desk the staff may try to convince you to pay for an upgrade using techniques such as explaining how uncomfortable a family of five will be in a compact car, which is a little bigger than a Ford Escort. However, you may find you get the upgrade without parting with any money. Americans tend not to hire compacts so the hire companies don’t have many in stock. Reject any requests for additional costs, take the keys and go to the car lot, where hopefully you will find a much larger car, which hasn’t cost you a cent more.

24. Book your cab in advance Getting to and from the airport can end up being a significant additional expenditure. In the UK minicabs are a sensible option but you must book in advance. If you don’t, and you want a taxi, the only option are the official on-site ranks, which can cost a fortune.

25. Book your airport parking in advance Turn up on the day and you’ll very likely feel sick at the price you’ll have to pay just to park your car for a week or two. So do your research, check your insurance or AA membership for special tie-in offers, check hotels that offer one-night, pre-flight stays that include long-term parking, look for off-site parking offers, or, best of all, get someone to run you there and back.

26. Cut your speed on motorways According to the AA, driving at 80mph on the motorways instead of 70mph costs an extra 4p a mile – or an extra litre of petrol every 20 miles. This may not sound much but it will add an extra £80 to a 2,000-mile tour of Europe. For lawbreakers driving at 90 or 100mph the costs are significantly higher – and you run the risk of heavy fines.

37. Two for one London If you are travelling to London and the South East by train there are some genuine offers for reduced entry to attractions such as Madame Tussauds and the aquarium on the 2for1 website.

38. Do you really need a hire car? British public transport maybe unreliable, dirty, out-dated and expensive but it’s not the case everywhere. In Tenerife,  the buses are cheap, punctual, air-conditioned and clean – there’s no need to hire a car or queue for a taxi.

39. Check your passport at least a month before you go If you leave this to the last minute and you have lost your passport, you won’t be going away at all. If it has expired you will need to pay way over the odds for a rush application. Don’t get caught out.
