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.

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.

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.

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.
