How to enjoy your tropical vacation while on a budget

Wendy works with the editorial team to help edit the content including current news, press releases, jobs and events. She keeps … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details Just because you are watching your money closely, doesn’t mean you can’t travel to a luxury resort without breaking the bank. My husband and I recently traveled to Turks and Caicos Islands and although the resort and its amenities were quite pricey, we were able to fully enjoy our trip because of a variety of smart money choices we made while there. From our experience, here are a few ways you can have a luxury tropical vacation (or an incredible honeymoon) without going broke.Go to the groceryWe immediately learned from other travelers that stopping by the local grocery store for food and beverages was critical to saving money. Like many other locales, resorts in the Caribbean are known to be extremely pricey. We learned this the hard way after spending over $100 on our first lunch on the property upon our arrival. We quickly made plans to bike ride to the store and we saved tremendously on necessities for our week stay. For example, instead of eating every meal at expensive restaurants, because our room had a full kitchen, we bought items to cook for lunch and planned to eat dinners out instead.Walk (or bike) don’t rideInstead of paying for taxis every time we needed to travel around town, we decided early on we would either walk or ride the bikes provided by the resort. Also, we learned quickly that renting a car for getting around town was also pricey. So, by walking and biking instead of riding, we not only saved money but also got some much-needed exercise.Listen to the localsOne of our favorite evenings during our week stay was the night of the local fish fry. Locals working at the resort informed us of the event, hosted by the local tourism department. At the event, we not only found great food at low prices, but also inexpensive souvenirs handmade by local merchants. So, by listening to suggestions from those from the area, we were able to get a glimpse of the local culture, meet Turks natives, all while saving greatly on food, drinks, and gifts.last_img read more

Spain bans gambling shirt sponsorships

first_imgShare Share Andrea Vota – Jdigital’s challenge of Spanish restrictions is led by logic and rationale August 13, 2020 Gambling companies will no longer be permitted to appear as front-of-shirt sponsors for La Liga clubs next season, according to a report in El Pais.Spanish Minister of Consumer Affairs Alberto Garzón has proposed a series of new draconian measures which will toughen up regulations on betting companies, including restrictions to sponsorship agreements and advertising exposure.Currently, eight clubs in La Liga feature a gambling company as a main shirt sponsor – Valencia, Alavés, Leganés, Granada, Mallorca, Sevilla, Osasuna and Levante.The ban follows the approval of laws as part of Spain’s ‘Royal Decree on Advertising’ which currently permits a four-hour advertising window for betting companies, but does not authorise any exposure out of the timeframe.In addition to the ban on shirt sponsorships, the new decree will prevent gambling companies from being allowed to sponsor stadium names nor any other aspect associated with the teams.Garzón had altered the wording of the ruling to state that “sponsorship in sports T-shirts or equipment will not be admissible”, with gambling companies already banned from featuring on youth shirts.The ban on using celebrity endorsements in betting adverts will also remain, however the inclusion of betting advertising on pitch perimeters ‘will depend on the regulation of each autonomous community’.Garzón anticipates that the bill will be in place for the start of the 2020/21 La Liga season, providing it gains the necessary approval in Brussels.
