Protect Your Automotive Investment


My son has never been interested in paying for cover of any kind. He only sees as far as his nose and
wants the money in his pocket now. No matter what I tell him of my past experience, the belief that
“It won’t happen to me” is just to set in his mind for the time being. He won’t even get himself some
personal insurance at the very lest.

So I have now decided to look into it myself and find something affordable to at least give me some peace of mind. After looking into I’ve decided to take out some ford fiesta insurance (on my sons car), some ford bantam insurance (on my own car) and nissan micra insurance on my wife’s car. I found the premiums so low that I just couldn’t resist taking them all onto my own name, for a small price I can protect my whole family.

Often, the well being of adults can take a back seat. Parents for example sacrifice their time and personal pampering for the sake of their children due to the many unforeseen and unexpected expenses that life presents. While you have to make tough decisions about what to sacrifice and what to prioritise, there are some things you’ll need to do for yourself to ensure financial protection, such as acquiring an insurance policy such as life cover.

A reputable provider will be able to give you the clarity needed to make an informed decision about taking out insurance for yourself. Not only do these insurance companies have helpful agents who are the perfect candidates to explain anything you need to know about insurance products but they can also help you take out insurance over the phone. It’s a quick and convenient service that can help you protect yourself financially without spending ages setting the process in motion.

Some things in life are extremely important, whether you want to face the facts or not.

  • There are people you need to take care of – Many South Africans have children that need taking care of and use a big portion of their income to do this. You’re the one responsible for feeding, clothing and sheltering your kids but when disaster strikes, will you be financially prepared? Many parents aren’t. Life insurance  provides a great way way to get ready for these events, as it pays out cash that can be spent on whatever your beneficiaries deem necessary. Get your priorities straight – Many people tend to leave important things until the last minute. This is usually followed by instant regret when something goes wrong and they aren’t prepared for it. Don’t let yourself get caught in the rain. Insurance is extremely important because it protects your money and, in turn, your quality of life. Just look at all the accidents that happen every day to see its value.
  • Sometimes you need to put yourself first – Life can be busy and full of activities and events, as well as family and friends making social and financial demands. However, while you’re dealing with these, you may lose sight of what you need. Sometimes, you just have to prioritise the things that will help you financially in the future to maintain your lifestyle if disaster strikes.

Shark Cage Diving In Cape Town

shark cage diving shark cage diving cape town2 shark cage diving

My family and I went on holiday and decided to be daring so we went white shark diving in South Africa as we come on holiday from the UK. Wow what a adrenalin rush from being less than a meter away from that huge shark.

It was definitely an experience my family and I will never forget. At least I can tick that off my bucket list of things to do.

I highly recommend shark cage diving in cape town to anyone who wants to do an extreme outdoor activity and experience a sudden rush of adrenaline.

Hiring A Car Is Easy


I love to travel and when I do I prefer having my own car and not having to deal with the hassle of
public transport. The sound of children crying on the bus or waiting in the rain trying to wave down
a taxi, really not the way I want to spend my time. Particularty in South Africa where public transport
is not up to scratch, I prefer Cape Town car hire and also johannesburg car hire everytime.

So next time you’re in the country I would highly recommend trying this route and seeing what you think.  The companies here do well and are up to every international standard.

Chris Fallows: The Shark Whisperer Shares His Secrets

Have you heard of Chris Fallows? If you love Great Whites, then you undoubtedly have. Chris is a well-known shark specialist and the discoverer of the now-famous breaching behaviour that the incredible predators use to hunt. He and his wife, Monique Fallows, run a shark cage diving company called Apex Shark Expeditions which operates in the scenic region of False Bay.
In 1989, Chris started tagging sharks and established a catch and release programme with local fishermen that effectively resulted in the release of more than 1,500 rays and sharks. From 1992-1996, he worked at Dyer Island, before co-founding African Shark Eco-Charters in False Bay.1996 was also the year when Chris and a colleague discovered the shark’s breaching behaviour in False Bay – the shark torpedoes its entire frame out the sea and then launches itself on unsuspecting prey. Chris and Monique started Apex in 2000 – a company that prioritises the shark’s well-being and aims to educate the public about these often misunderstood fish.

With over 1,300 trips to Seal Island under his belt, Chris is an expert on Great White behaviour and, together with his team; he has catalogued 5,500 predatory events, which is the largest database of its kind in the world.

You can also read Chris’s scientific papers to familiarise yourself with the behaviour of sharks or opt to go on one of his special ‘Sharks of Southern Africa’ tours, which are specially designed to cater for shark and wildlife enthusiasts. If you are interested in shark cage diving in Gansbaai or False Bay and want to go with a responsible company that emphasises the well-being of the animal, then you can’t go wrong with Apex.

Chris will be speaking and signing books at the Two Oceans Aquarium on the 27th February. The event promises to be an unforgettable one and includes a welcome drink, snacks and a tour of the Aquarium, which currently houses in excess of 3,000 living sea animals.

The Aquarium showcases the phenomenal diversity of life found in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans and has numerous colourful and informative displays for guests to enjoy, including the seal enclosure and penguin zone. It was established in 1995 and has grown from strength to strength; now recognised as one of Cape Town’s most treasured tourist hot spots.

Buying a home can be a real turning point in anyones life and the right home loan can make all the difference.

Using a home loan affordability calculator or a home loan repayment calculator, is well advisable to make the necessary calculations and ensuring thouroughness with respect to such a big decision.
