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.

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.

43. Don’t let Disney take the Mickey The mousesavers website maybe for American people but it is definitely worth a read if you want to do Disney for less.

44. Track down local restuarants In Venice, in general, the closer a restaurant is to St Mark’s Square the more touristy and expensive it is. Remember, wherever you go local people eat out too. Avoid the tourist traps and you’ll be better fed and richer.

45. Check in to the library For free guide books pop in to your local library. You can ask for an extended borrowing period if you are worried about not getting the books back on time, or renew them online.
