Summer holiday essentials on a budget

When planning your summer holiday, it can be tempting to go on a bit of a spending spree, however you really don’t need to spend the earth to get everything you need.

Sunglasses are a summer holiday must-have but is it really worth spending lots of money on them? More often than not they end up falling in the sand or getting tossed into the beach bag so could easily end up getting broken. You can pick-up low-cost fashion sunglasses for as little as £3 so why not avoid the stress and just buy a couple of cheap pairs that won’t matter if they get damaged.

Sun cream can be expensive particularly if there’s a certain brand that you like to buy. If that’s the case then it’s a good idea to shop around and stock up when it’s on offer to avoid buying it last minute whilst you’re away.

Buying pool inflatables whilst away is a temptation that most of us succumb too however it can end up costing a fortune.  Usually pool floats and inflatables are almost three times cheaper if you buy them before you go and just stick them in your suitcase. They don’t weight much either so you may as well buy before you go.
