Swimming Safety tips
Whether at home or abroad, follow these basic tips for keeping safe:
- Never swim alone or under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and never dive head-first into an unfamiliar body of water.
- Check local information for details of tides, currents and pollution.
- Bilharzia, a parasitic infection of the bowel or bladder, may be contracted by contact with infested fresh water in the tropics.
- In certain areas, fatal primary amoebic meningoencephalitis has occurred following swimming in warm dirty water.
- Salt water is generally safer than fresh water for swimming in developing countries. However, only pools that contain properly chlorinated water can be considered safe from infectious diseases.
- When swimming in the sea, check out the possible existence of jellyfish, sea urchins, coral, sea snakes, sharks and venomous fish. Human sewage and animal faeces make some beaches no-go areas for swimming or even wading.
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.
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.
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 Caribbean.
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.
