SAVE CASH ABROAD
Figures by online travel agency sunshine.co.uk show that holidaymakers spend £14 on taking out money every time they go away. The best way to avoid hefty charges is to grab a prepaid card before
you leave. Get one from the Post Office.
A website helps you find the best-priced airport and rail transfers around the world, particularly in European holiday hot spots, such as Spain and Turkey. They also include the US.
HOW THE STARS SPEND MONEY
- Despite her perfect set of teeth, Lana Del Rey has sported both a sparkly silver tooth cap and a 14K gold crown worth about £200.
- After chipping her tooth on a mic, actress Hilary Duff got porcelain veneers, each of which can cost up to £600. But she quickly had them shortened when several media outlets dubbed them “giant horse teeth”. Ouch!
- Cheryl Cole’s smile is supposedly the one most patients want for themselves. The former X Factor judge spends £9500 a year on straightening and whitening treatments.
- Victoria Beckham says she was afraid to smile as a gap-toothed kid. Not the case anymore – she’s reportedly splashed out more than £25,000 on dental work.
