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.

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.

27. Find a low-cost insurance policy online Your travel agent – online or High Street – will try to flog you insurance. Just say no. Go online or talk to a broker and you’ll find single-trip European policies for less than £10 per person. If you’re going away more than once in the year, consider an annual policy. Just make sure you understand what you need and read the small print. Tip: single-trip policies cover you for cancellation as soon as you take out the policy even if your travel dates are months ahead. This is not the case for annual policies, which start from the day you take

28. Shop around for your European breakdown cover We’ve all heard of the AA and RAC but it’s only insurance and any number of companies offer the same type of policies for significantly less money.

29. The packed lunch trick If you’re flying no-frills, you can pay several pounds for an in-flight sandwich and drink or you can take your own. With some of these low-cost deals, the cost of your food can be more expensive than the cost of your flights. There’s a principle at stake here more than just a free lunch.

30. Take the coach According to a This is Money survey, petrol will have to reach £10 a litre before we start leaving our cars at home in any great numbers. Until then public transport is always going to find it hard to compete. But coaches are pretty luxurious these days and at the time of writing, megabus.com is offering intercity fares throughout the UK from 50p, with £1 fares available during the Christmas holidays.

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.
