Making my Dental Plan work for me.

Posted on 17 November 2017 at 1:31 PM by Kerry Kell

We all know what an expensive, sometimes scary trip to the dentist can be and not something which is top of our list to spend our hard earned wages on, so when I was told after a routine check-up that I needed some treatment doing which was not going to be cheap, it was time to re-evaluate my dental plan. Luckily this happened just before the Choices window opened. I had the basic plan already, but now I needed something more superior.  After checking through the dental plans and prices,...

Making the most out of a great deal!

I’m not an avid user of Tribe, but I do use it from time to time. I find it’s about using Tribe to find the deals that work for you. It’s definitely worth keeping it as an Internet shortcut! Last year I took my fiancé to Paris for his 30th birthday. I knew Tribe had a good deal on the Eurostar so I logged on and had a look. It was only £59 for a return and £99 if you wanted to upgrade – bargain! To make sure I was getting the best deal, I also checked directly with Eurostar but it was much...

Making the most of our Ride To Work scheme

I’ve ridden to work on and off for years, I rode a mountain which requires a little more effort than a streamlined road bike, but I got fed up of people going past me as if they were putting no effort in so thought “if you can’t beat them, join them!” and took the opportunity to sign up to the Ride-to-Work scheme to get myself a road bike. The process was nice and simple - specify how much you want to spend on your bike and accessories and when you receive your vouchers, your search for a...

Since I was about 16, I’ve suffered with my stomach and there is not a single day I don’t get pain, sickness and anxiety.  Anxiety is a scary word and it conjures all sorts of thoughts and feelings. I’m confident in myself, I’ve been called unflappable and I don’t take life too seriously, but it’s difficult to think straight in a meeting when you suddenly get chest pain, spasms in your gut or back pain so intense you think you’ve damaged something. The worst part of pain is not knowing wh...

Buying extra holiday to say 'I do'

Posted on 17 November 2017 at 1:26 PM by Laura Garnett

With a date (finally) in place for our wedding, I decided to buy five days extra holiday through Choices. This meant that I was able to relax in the knowledge that I had enough days away from work to do all the exciting wedding things that I needed to do this year like dress fittings, my hen weekend (and recovery!) plus a spa day and any last minute preparations in the days before the wedding - not to mention the wedding itself and honeymoon still to come!  There’s no doubt about it, wedd...
