Summer holiday

1 August 2008

The coming of August means many of you will be flocking abroad in search of some consistent sun and a break from work. But can buyers ever really step away from the day job?

Holidays do tend to throw up the odd trip to the market, or casual stroll around the souvenir shops. This will present an almost certain opportunity to barter with the nearest storekeeper over some tat that will probably gather dust in a box upon your return home.

With this in mind, how do you use your purchasing skills while on holiday?

Can you resist a sly negotiation?
