Did you know that switching to the E.ON Go Online tariff could save you up to £200 a year, compared to the Ofgem national average? Imagine all the things you could do with that £200.. no really, imagine it… I did!
Apparently I’d save £24 in the year, which might not sound like a lot, but it would buy a ticket to see my mum in Spain and a magazine at the airport!
We were in Spain together as a family in July. We had a terrific time exploring Benalmadena and the towns nearby (and some far away, like Gibraltar).
In Benalmadena, there is the fabulous Paloma Park, which is perfect for children. Some animals roam around, while others are in the pens dotted about the park. The playgrounds are well equipped, and there is a load of wide open space for walking, picnics, and exploring.
Of course, you’re not very far from the beach, and the promenade with a variety of mosaics to interest you along the walk. Another little money saving tip – check out the currency exchanger Reubens, who offers a good price for exchange, with free drinks and sweets for the kids. But best of all are the discounts they offer on the entry tickets to local attractions, transport, and trips.
We took a trip up in the Teleferico – cable car. It was really exciting to be going so high, over the road and rooftops. At the top, there’s a bird show several times each day (in summer – in winter there are fewer shows). Check the times on their website to be sure to catch the falconry display while you’re there. It’s a great show, with a very experienced and entertaining falconer. The birds are varied, with some I’d certainly never seen before, like a blue eagle.

After the descent in the cable car, there’s a short walk back to town. But in the heat of the July sun, how could we pass by the fountains next to the train station?!
It’s worth having a look at the E.ON site to get a quote to learn how much you could save if you switched to E.ON’s Go Online tariff. What would you do with the extra cash if you switched? If you need some inspiration you can see how some other bloggers would use their money on the E.ON site.
