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

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.

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.
