School Holidays are coming - are you ready?

School's out and it's time for the holidays however it can be a very expensive for families and sometimes can cause financial difficulties for parents having to spend money on keeping their child entertained over the holidays.

However the school holidays doesn't have to be an expensive time for all and we've tried to come up with some ideas for you. If you have any money-saving tips that others may find useful then please do share them on our Facebook page.

Money saving tips during the summer holidays
  • Look out for free events. We will be at the Wealden Activity Days handing out goodie bags to the children. You can find the dates and venues on the website.
  • Sign up your children to Smartcash and earn rewards whilst shopping.
  • Use the holidays to visit relatives and friends over a picnic in the park or on the beach. If they live too far away then use free calls just as Skype.
  • Read money-saving articles from others such as Money Saving Expert.
  • Don't get caught up with high-interest pay day loans. If you need help buying school uniforms then contact us about a Back to School Loan.
  • Don't go over-spending on credit cards! It may be cheaper for you to take out a Back to School Loan with your local credit union.


The new pre-paid visa card for children aged 8-16 years, Smartcash provides a simple, safe and great way for young people to learn about money and shop hassle-free. It's fully trackable so parents can monitor their shopping on a mobile app. Find out more here.
