Beach Safety : Safety Advice

Millions of people enjoy spending time at beaches around the UK every year. Being aware of the dangers at the beach and spotting the hazards will ensure that your visit to the beach is a happy event and does not turn into a tragedy. When visiting the beach, especially if you have children with you, consider the following:-

Spot the dangers Do a check of the beach when you arrive. Notice whether there are lifeguards available, whether the tide is in or out, are there rocks, piers, groynes or breakwaters that may affect paddling and bathing. Is the beach busy? Are there watersports taking place, are these in zoned areas? What are the sea conditions like, does the beach shelve steeply?

Take safety advice Try and choose a beach that offers a lifeguard service and swim where the patrol operates, within the area of red/yellow flags. Look for safety information which may include warning signs and know what the flags mean:-

Red and Yellow - Lifeguards on patrol. Two flags at the waters edge denote where the patrolled bathing area is.

Red and Yellow – Lifeguards on patrol. Two flags at the waters edge denote where the patrolled bathing area is.

Red – Dangerous to bathe or swim and you should not go into the water.

Quartered black and white flag - shows that an area is zoned off for watersport activities, swimmers and bathers should avoid this area, it is not safe for them.

Go together Children should always go with an adult, not by themselves. Don’t swim alone. Make sure that you know where everyone in your group is. Constant supervision is the only real means of ensuring your child’s safety.

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.

4. Travel on the ferry at unsociable times After years of outrageously high fares, the cross-Channel ferry operators have woken up to the fact that people aren’t prepared to pay up to £600 to cross a stretch of water so short you can see the other side from our shores – especially as you can fly to Spain for a few quid. As a result, fares have plunged and if you can travel at night, it’s even cheaper.

5. Stay at home A change is good as a rest so why not move into the spare room or swap rooms with your kids for a week or two. It’s free and can be great fun – especially if you can agree to swap roles so the children do all the cooking.

6. Share the cost A holiday home that sleeps 12 people isn’t usually six times more expensive than one that sleeps two. So if you can bear to share with friends or family you could save a packet.

Why book a room in a crowded hotel when you can rent a private villa with swimming pool – we feature villa rentals with pools in Spain, Portugal and Cyprus and 51 other Countries across the World.

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.

31. How to locate cheap train tickets Since the railways were privatised, unearthing cheap train tickets can seem impossible. But it’s really quite simple. There are basically three types of ticket. The ‘cheapo’, available if you book 28 days or more in advance; the just-about-affordable if booked 14 days or more in advance; and the forget-it, which is what you’ll pay in the last week before you travel. Best is to check individual websites for details. Tip: For peak periods at Christmas and Easter the ‘cheapo’ tickets go on sale about eight or nine weeks before the respective festive period and by ‘cheapo’ we mean around £25 return to cross most of the country rising to three or four times the price if you leave it to the last minute.

32. Don’t fly on Fridays or Saturdays Useless advice if you want to get away for a week at half-term but during the summer or Easter if you can fly on weekdays you can save a lot of money. BA.com has a useful fare search tool that allows you to select the cheapest day to fly.

33. It’s your (holiday) money Remember commission-free doesn’t mean profit free. Shop around before exchanging currency.

Swimming Pools and Beaches

  • Never leave children unsupervised.
  • Never go swimming alone.
  • Do not swim for 1 hour after a meal. Amongst other things do remember to familiarise yourself with and check the following: Depth markings in the swimming pool in relation to height of yourself and children and also for jumping and diving.
  • Read any notices relating to the swimming pool and surrounding area and never swim when the pool is closed.
  • Always check that there is water in the pool and take care when walking (never run) round the edge as it may be slippery. Tides and currents. Non swimming areas. Depth of water. Submerged objects

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.

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.

22. Visit cheap countries Sounds obvious but take Greece – once a cheap option for a family holiday. Rampant inflation on the back of its entry to the euro and its new-found upmarket view of itself as Olympic host and European football champions, it has become relatively expensive. Italy on the other hand is still delightfully reasonable.

23. Don’t use the Gatwick Express If you’re travelling from central London to Gatwick airport or vice versa you have a choice or rail operators. The non-stop Gatwick Express, which charges around £24 one way for an adult, and the two-stop Southern service, which takes FIVE minutes longer but costs a mere £9. Note: For the Heathrow and Stansted Express services it’s less clear cut as the alternatives, though cheaper, can be overcrowded and therefore less reliable.

Holidays South Korea

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.

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.
