PHONE CHARG­ERS

If you ar­rive at your ho­tel overseas and find you have for­got­ten your phone charge adap­tor, plug the cable into the USB port in the back of the TV and it will charge your phone. JUDY HAN­LEY

HO­TEL LOY­ALTY

When book­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion, sign up for ho­tel loy­alty pro­grams which of­fer 10-20 per cent dis­count on ser­vices. On our visit to Fiji, we had our ho­tel room up­graded to a pres­i­den­tial suite. ASHWIN DEVI

MOROCCO TOURS

If plan­ning to go on a Sa­hara Desert camel trek, don’t pre-book an ex­pen­sive tour. Lots of places in Mar­rakesh of­fer very in­ex­pen­sive tours with in­ter­est­ing stops, good food and good ho­tel/tent ac­com­mo­da­tion for amaz­ingly in­ex­pen­sive prices. A quick shop around will find you a good deal. DEAN SHAW

BUD­GET FLIGHTS

When trav­el­ling on a bud­get air­line, pack some herbal tea bags in your purse. You then only need to re­quest a hot cup of wa­ter (free) for a re­fresh­ing hot drink. TINA VEREY

As a fam­ily of four, we have learnt many things, usu­ally the hard way, of what to do and not to do, and what to bring and not bring. One tip is to take glow sticks.
