This is one of the videos we produced with the Central Bank of Malta in our budgeting series.
Let me introduce the ĠEMMA family. I am Tony. I am Maria’s husband. I work as a manager in a large business in the services industry. My wife, Maria is 40 years old and works in my father’s family business. We have two kids: Matthias, our son who is 11 years old, and is now in secondary school, and Angele, our daughter who is 17 and is finishing upper secondary school this scholastic year.
Finally all the family is now COVID-19 vaccinated. With the kids now on holiday we can plan a family holiday – go somewhere lovely where we can relax, have a great time together, and bond up, prior school. Funny, really – having spent all this time together was initially a great bonding experience but in the long run we were getting in each other’s way and tensions started to build all around. A holiday will give us all the shot in the arm that we all need as we hopefully forward forward into a less stressful COVID life 😊😊😊.
We plan to a take a low budget holiday. At the moment flight and accommodation prices to certain places are on the expensive side as everybody seems to be getting away. We are using the Internet to do searches on destinations we should consider, taking into account flight costs, rental costs of apartments, costs of restaurants, etc.
We plan to go to a Euro country destination. This way we do not need unnecessary leakage on our travel budget resulting from foreign exchange conversion fees. Also this will make sure that we will not get caught out by massive mobile bills because of roaming charges. We are also aware of the potential of travel Internet scams – particularly relating to false rental of accommodation. So we will be following all the ĠEMMA tips on how to protect ourselves against travel scams.
