The quantity of paper documents that you need to take with you when you go on holiday abroad has reduced massively in recent years as the majority of travel companies, hotels and airlines accept documents such as booking confirmations and check in documents that are saved on phones or tablets however there are still some travellers that prefer to use paper documents and obviously passports have to be carried at all times whilst travelling and produced when required. There are a number of ways to make sure your documents are kept secure whilst still being easily accessible if needed. A simple solution is to buy a plastic A5 size zip close wallet to hold your documents. All your paperwork, passports, holiday confirmations and insurance documents can all be kept in one place and should fit easily into a handbag or a pocket in your hand luggage. Additional documents such as boarding passes can be added to the plastic wallet when they are issued ensuring that they too are kept safe.... Read More

Some people have been unable to get away on holiday this year unfortunately because they have been shielding due to the Coronavirus regulations in their area but it could be that now is a good time to fit in a break away before tighter restrictions come into force once more. Many holiday parks in the UK are open all year round and even if some of the park attractions such as swimming pools and bars are closed it is still possible to visit the local area and enjoy a walk in the countryside or along the beach. The accommodation on the holiday parks is usually a static caravan or chalet but do not be put off because they can be a cosy bolthole if the weather is bad and you cannot get out and about. Bedding and towels can often be provided if necessary and an online shop delivered to your holiday accommodation makes for a stress-free start to your holiday. Fantastic deals are available at this time of year with one week’s holiday for less than one hundred pounds. It really... Read More

Holidays can be expensive especially if you have a large family, so it is always better to budget to allow yourself time to shop around for the best deal knowing what you must spend. Although some holidays offer you the opportunity to pay in instalments, most holidays need to be paid in full by six to ten weeks in advance. The cheapest way to go on a holiday abroad is usually self-catering but you will need to by all your food and drink when away, therefore will be required to save money for that too. If you do not want to take much spending money with you then why not try to make your own breakfast and lunch in your hotel room either to eat there or take with you to the beach etc. Many people spend a lot of money on alcohol, again buying drink to keep in your room will allow you to have one or two before you go out, saving you money. If you are renting a villa, it may be that there is a BBQ on site that you can use. This can be a great way to have a cheap night and still... Read More

If you want to enjoy a romantic city getaway with your partner but can’t afford to fly to a far off destination have no fear because there are plenty of beautiful cities to explore right on your doorstep here in the UK. Some people think that a break in London or one of the other larger cities is going to give them the romantic vibe that they are looking for but visiting one of the smaller cities will probably be more likely to provide the atmosphere they desire. Visiting one of the UK’s coastal cities such as Liverpool in Merseyside or Plymouth in Devon means that as well as the vibrant nightlife that a city break provides you can also enjoy the beaches and harbour areas. The accommodation on offer to someone wanting a romantic break away is varied and ranges from quaint pubs that may have a rich history of visits by highwaymen in days gone by to luxurious spa hotels offering treatments and facilities to pamper and relax you. Superb in house dining in these hotels means... Read More

Many of us are looking at cheaper ways to take the family away on holiday this year as the cost of an annual holiday has become out of reach for some and the present regulations following the pandemic has meant that some families are having to watch the pennies. Camping has always been regarded as a cheaper alternative when planning a holiday, however it can turn out to be costly if the site you choose has a lot of facilities on offer such as clubs, restaurants and swimming pools. It is wise to think about your family’s needs when booking a site for example will you use the swimming pool if your family prefer to visit the beach every day? If you have young children that go to bed early is a club with live entertainment essential to your stay? If you choose a site with good basic facilities such as a clean modern toilet and shower block and a play area for the children big savings can be made. The site location can make a huge difference to the cost of a camping pitch. A camp... Read More
