Summing Up

The Entertainment Book has saved me thousands of dollars over the years, from all things related to dining, shopping, and travel.

Saving money on your car hire isn’t hard, and I’m always surprised to hear people say that they’ve paid full price for car hire when travelling.

Admittedly It is often difficult to assess the value of car hire offers because of the sheer number of offers that are available at any one time.

Always do your comparisons and sums to make sure you’re getting the best deal on your booking.
