Pollution and Holidays
When it comes to monitoring beaches for pollution, some countries are better than others.
Shark tales make bigger headlines, but water pollution is far more common—and a greater threat to humans than the creature depicted in Jaws ever was. In the United States, fouled swimming water is responsible for tens of thousands of beach closings and health advisories every year. Although there is still no uniform federal protocol for testing water quality at beaches, information on water cleanliness at most of the nation’s public swimming beaches can be found on the Environmental Protection Agency’s site. Outside the United States, however, travellers are largely left to fend for themselves.
Most pollution at swimming beaches is caused by bacteria associated with fecal contamination. Some of these bacteria are harmless, but they are often accompanied by more pernicious pathogens, including E. coli, salmonella, giardia, and enteroviruses that cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, and other extremely unpleasant symptoms for the millions of swimmers who are exposed to them every year. Though rare, cholera, hepatitis, and typhoid fever are among the more serious water-borne maladies found at beaches around the world.
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.
7. House swap You may think you live in a horrid, torrid suburban time warp – but to an American visitor your home could well the quaint historic corner of Britain that they’ve been yearning for. Likewise, their ‘small’ tumble-down hovel will probably feel like a mansion. Give it at try.
8. Check out the special ‘anti-truancy’ deals As part of the Government’s Every Lesson Counts campaign to cut down on truancy, major holiday companies have developed special deals such as free child places and money off for adults. Ask your school for details or contact the travel firms – but bear in mind that many of these offers may still be cheaper elsewhere.
9. Surf for a deal It’s one of the things the internet does best. Compare flights, create your own holidays and book online – or use it for research then phone around the High Street chains and haggle.

16. Interail Again, not just for gap-year students. There are many European and country-specific rail schemes to enjoy. If you’re really savvy you can travel on the overnight trains with your own cabin to avoid booking a hotel.
17. Think about cheap hotel chains In Britain, there’s Travelodge and Holiday Inn Express among others. In France there are tons of them dotted all over the country with rooms for three people from less than £20 a night. They’re close enough to all the major tourist areas to make it a real viable option for the cost-conscious francophile.
18. Do your own research online You don’t have to pay a fortune or spend years trawling the globe for the hidden gems. Just log on one or more of the travel websites and read the views of previous guests. Remember: cheap doesn’t have to mean nasty.
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.
