How many bottles of suntan lotion do you take on holiday with you? Chances are it is not enough. "That's ok" I hear you say, "we can always buy some where we are going". But this could be a costly mistake.
If you follow the guidelines that the NHS lay down here then you are most probably one or two bottles short on sun protection.
With prices for sun lotion in the UK some of the lowest anywhere you can save big bucks by buying here and taking with you. Even at the airport the prices will be lower than in most holiday destinations. In Greece and Cyprus you can pay the equivalent of £12-13.00 and in Spain and the Balearics you can pay up to an eye-watering £17.45. Compared with a cost in the UK of £4.50 this is a significant spend for a family. Check out prices on the Post Office's handy Holiday Costs Barometer here.
In fact a British family could end up spending as much as £200 on extra sun protection products. Wouldn't you rather spend that money on something more fun? So pack extra suntan lotion in your suitcase whenever you go on holiday. Don't end up with a red face - in any sense of the word!
