Holidays in the UK/ Learn to Swim on Holiday
How do you feel
about using holiday time to learn to swim with a UK
holiday learning to
swim. We can accommodate you at the pool or arrange accommodation in
local B&B / guest house or in a hotel (with bed and breakfast). If we know
how far you need to travel we can make suggestions for flights or train services
for those that prefer not to drive. Car rental can also be arranged.

Pollution and Holidays
When it comes to monitoring beaches for pollution, some countries are better
Shark tales make bigger headlines, but water pollution is far more commonand
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
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.
19. Haggle for your hotel by email
One tip we like is to find accommodation recommended in guide books and
on the travel websites – then email them directly to check for
availability. Wait a few weeks and check again. If it’s still available
you’re in a strong position to haggle for a deal. Email is particularly
useful for people who hate haggling face to face or by phone.
20. Collect newspaper tokens
Many newspapers have a travel club or offer travel discounts that involve
collecting tokens. Some of them offer a fantastic opportunity to save money on
your holiday. Others don’t, so always read the small print.
21. Check the latest exchange rates
Fluctuations in the value of the pound can mean the difference between being
able to afford a holiday in the US and not. At current rates, America is around
20% cheaper than a couple of years ago. Also, think about visiting countries
with currencies aligned to the dollar such as those in Latin America and the
