I have heard about tour operators going out of business. On the other hand, if I book everything myself, what if something goes wrong or the hotel isn't what we expected? How do I decide which is the best option for me? When you are booking a holiday, not only is there an array of locations to consider, but you may also need to factor in flights, transfers and travel insurance. Along with taking away the hassle of making all the arrangements, booking a package holiday also provides you with additional rights. Before you travel, the tour operator or travel agent must provide you with all of the details about your holiday, such as all costs, cancellation arrangements, and so on. It is also responsible for ensuring that your holiday runs smoothly. If for example the service provided is different from what was promised to you, it should fix the problem at no extra cost to you - or the operator must compensate you. A package holiday can be more expensive than booking a holiday directly - … [Read more...] about Should I book DIY holiday or travel agent’s package deal?

'I just woke one morning with a strong desire to make historical women's garments," Rebecca Olds, 50, recalled. Lesser urges must have occurred and passed unheeded. But Ms Olds, a former paralegal, and her husband, Adam Bell, 55, a three-decade veteran of financial services, were at a point in their lives ripe to invest in 17th century apparel. "Last year I had a lot happening," Ms Olds said. "My mother died, making me re-examine what I wanted from my work. I was also planning my marriage to Adam and designing my own wedding dress. "He wanted to take early retirement and all those strands collided, so we sat down and asked, 'what would we like to be doing?' " More of us will have the chance to contemplate the same. Britons are living healthier, more active lives for longer. Government research predicts that by the mid-2030s half of British adults will be over 50. A million more over-50s will be working or available to work in the next six years, as fewer, out of choice or … [Read more...] about Want early retirement?

James Kirkup 13 November 2018 4:19 PM 13 November 2018 4:19 PM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp Many things about the politics of Brexit are mystifying. Some are minor puzzles: Why don’t people read the documents they say they’re angry about, for instance? And some are major enigmas: Why don’t politicians talk about the economic and social problems that drove the Leave vote instead of fixating on misunderstood abstractions like sovereignty? Yet here we are, staggering into the ‘endgame’ of the most consequential negotiations in our postwar history and the debate has come down to a pair of Old Etonians talking about vassalage. I wonder how many people of Sunderland thought that’s what they were voting for in June 2016. To my mind, Jo Johnson was a better journalist than his brother Boris, which is why he can capture his critique of Theresa May’s Brexit policy with economical elegance: ‘To present … [Read more...] about Why MPs should back Theresa May’s Brexit deal
The former boss of Topshop has lifted the lid on working for the “bully” Sir Philip Green, claiming she spent years protecting her team from him. Jane Shepherdson was brand director of the high street chain when Sir Philip bought its parent company in 2002. She later quit because she “couldn’t bear the thought” of working closely with him. “There is no question he was a bully. Everybody knows he was a bully,” Ms Shepherdson told The Telegraph’s inaugural Women Mean Business Live event. Speaking openly for the first time about her five years working with the billionaire, she said: “I had brought in this incredibly talented team of people to work at Topshop. “There was absolutely no way that I would have them be exposed to that kind of behaviour and the way Philip ran his business. “I felt it was my duty to protect the team from that. If he came on to the buying floor somebody would come and get me and say, ‘Jane, … [Read more...] about Women Mean Business: ‘I had to protect staff from Philip Green’s bullying’ alleges former Topshop chief
