Thrifty Spending w/Penny Carr @BeingMrsC

West Herts Drivetime - Thu, 05/05/2016 - 6:15pm
We were joined once again in the studio today by our very own Thrifty Correspondent Penny Carr.

The Thrifty focus for today was travel, and how you can get around most cost-efficiently.

Penny wants to make people aware of the Friends and Family Railcards available online at http://www.familyandfriends-railcard.co.uk/ by entering the codes that will be available on the back of 'The Sun' for the next few days.

She also advises people to 'be creative' with holidays for their young children, suggesting quick trips to closer locations via slower methods such as sleeper train coaches, and looking at cheap, free and fun activities.

Also, cheap flight bookings are recommended, looking at websites such as Kayak, The Skyscanner or travelsupermarket will often find you cheap tickets.


To read more from Penny you can visit her blog; beingmrsc.com
And if you missed out on her segment today you can go to http://listenagain.radioverulam.com/ and navigate to Thursday at 5:30.
