Hit the road

Planning on taking a road trip this summer? If you haven’t got a sat nav, and your phone’s battery dies at the mere mention of Google Maps, head down to Halfords, who are offering big reductions on ex-display Garmin Nuvi sat navs.

The six-inch nuviCam comes with a built-in dash cam, full European maps and traffic warnings and is yours for €155, reduced from €379.99. The five-inch nuvi 2599, meanwhile, comes with lifetime Europe maps and traffic, and is on sale for €90 (was €219.99), and the nuvi 2519, featuring lifetime Ireland and UK maps, will set you back just €75 (was €179.99).

They could turn out to be priceless, however, should you find yourself utterly lost on the highways and byways of Norfolk or Northumberland!

Here comes Adventure

If you fancy giving the kids a good time this weekend, check out Fort Lucan Outdoor AdventureLand. They’re currently offering a variety of discounts via Groupon – deals include a €24 day pass for one adult and two children (40% discount) and €45 for a day pass for one adult and four children (41% off).

Plus two children under two go free!

Introduce a friend to Sky

Do you have a friend thinking about forking out for Sky TV? There could be something in it for you both – ask them to sign up on 0818 716 011 and Sky will give you a €75 prepaid MasterCard, with a €50 prepaid MasterCard and a free Sky+ HD box for your friend.

As Sky says, there’s no limit to the cashback you could earn – we hope you have a lot of friends.

A little extra from Xtra-vision

If you’re a devastated fan of Xtra-vision, the fallen rental giant has one last gift to offer – they’re currently holding an online liquidation sale to get rid of their stock, with up to 70% off DVDs, games and music, plus free delivery when you spend €25 or more.
