CHEATING VISA

The official rules of cheating on a lads holiday

Is it really wrong to cheat on holiday? The official rules of cheating on a lads holiday (and the reasons why we do it)

Cheating sucks (literally)… but is it wrong to cheat on a holiday?

The answer I think comes do to whether or not you can handle the guilt.

If you can’t (like me) – then cheating is NOT for you. Simple.

But for those who can, let me present to you the Official Rules of Cheating on Holiday…

Cheating Visa

Seann-William Scott introduced us to the ‘areacode rule’ in the film, Road Trip. It’s similar to that. If you travel overseas, your cheating visa is activated. When you return home, it’s deactivated.

Condom Protection

ALWAYS bag-up. If you break this rule you MUST get checked before banging your missus when you get home. If you’re riddled with Herpes, it’s time to breakup or confess.

EGGPLANT CONDOM

You can grab 40 condoms on Amazon for peanuts by clicking here – so no excuses!

Deal With the Guilt

Cheating is the easy bit. Living with guilt can be hard. Do NOT tell her just to get it off your chest. Man up, and own your actions.

Yes, confessing might make you feel better but you’ll end up hurting your missus, all because you couldn’t keep your mouth shut (and d*ck in your pants).

And that’s not really fair is it?!

What Goes Abroad, STAYS abroad!

Maintaining contact with the holiday fling(s) is completely forbidden.

Keep it to yourself and remember, as soon as land on home turf, the ‘Cheating Visa’ is deactivated.

RECAP

I’ve spoke to a high number of people (mostly lads) who swear cheating on their partners has actually HELPED their relationship, as it keeps things fresh, fun and exciting.

And it turns out there’s a ton of studies to back the players up, too.

 

Cheating isn’t for everyone though, so remember, if you don’t think you’d be able to handle the guilt, don’t bother…

But if you’re a heartless player who’s horny as f*ck, do it… Just make sure you follow the rules.

YOU COVERED?

Cheap travel insurance for lads holidays, adventure sports and backpackers

Everything you need to know about getting insured on holiday

Look, I’m not your Mum and I’m not going to bore you with a thousand examples of what could go wrong if you don’t get travel insurance (I’ll save that for another post).

Bottom line is, IF you’re not insured and something goes wrong in another country, you’re absolutely f*cked!

Travel insurance can be sorted in a matter of minutes and cost next to nothing.

Personally, I HATE webforms.. So for me, the faster the experience the better – which is why I use MoneySuperMarket.com – which searches a dozen insurance companies all in one go.

Three simple steps to pick travel insurance…

It takes a couple of seconds to pull up a list of travel insurance deals, but please DO NOT go for the cheapest deal without spending 10 seconds to glance over what’s covered as not all insurance companies are created equal.

For example: This year (2018-2019) I used CoverForYou.com and paid £62 for the entire year, which covers me for almost anything, from falling off a scooter to getting hit in the face with a golf ball (you never know).

The reason I didn’t pick the cheapest option is because it did NOT cover me for motorised insurance – meaning if I fell off a quad bike and into a cactus, I would not only have to deal with a thousand pricks (and possibly some broken bones) – but I’d also have to fork out for a hefty medical bill.

You can easily see what’s included by following these steps…

Step #3. Check if the activity is mentioned in the list.

Here’s a comparison between the cheap insurance and the one I decided to go with
Activities covered: Left, the cheap option. Right, the policy I went with.

Remember: If something looks too good to be true, it might be – so check.

 

Anyway, here’s a couple of FAQs.

Do I need travel insurance to go on holiday?

Nope. For years I didn’t get it and I was lucky. Changed my mind after seeing the state of my mate James’ medical bill (and face) after taking a tumble down a New York subway staircase.

What does travel insurance typically cover?

It’s important you check each policy (as discussed) but in most instances, this is what you’re covered for:

1. Lost or stolen luggage
2. Emergency medical expenses
3. Cancelled flights or holidays
4. Personal liability, meaning if you’re as clumsy as our pal Paul, if you manage to break anything – this is covered too.

Side note: There’s a chance you may NOT be covered for things like Earthquakes or acts of terrorism.

Travel Insurance for clubbing / party holidays?

If you’re under 18 and need travel insurance, click here. If you’re over 18, and are thinking of visiting some of Europe’s party destinations, such as Magaluf, Malia, Ibiza etc – make sure you click on the activities covered as some companies will screw you over for water sports.

Best travel insurance company for trips to USA?

American medical bills SUCK – so make sure you’re covered. They’re usually dirt cheap if you’re only going for a week or two.

Best travel insurance company for Adventure Sports?

Top Dog Insurance seem to offering the best deals for Adventure Sports travel insurance right now. But again, I still prefer to use comparisson sites as I’m too lazy to fill out multiple forms.

Spot yourself

15 types of blokes you get on a Lads Holiday - which one are you?

Spot yourself - and your mates - on our latest list

What sort of bloke are you on a Lads Holiday?

Every trip has its characters and once the dust has settled on day one it’s normally quite easy to divvy up the roles among your boys. So we’ve pulled together this list of the 15 types of Lads we reckon you get on almost all boozy weekends.

Chances are you’ll know who in your group fits each stereotype. Maybe you’re the Lad who loves the rippers or the Lad who carries the whip? Or are you the sort who goes home early or falls in love with a local bird on the first night and leaves your boys going solo?

Have a nose through our list below and see which Lad you can identify with…and then share with a mate who needs naming and shaming!

The Organiser Lad

He’s the bloke at the airport dishing out the boarding passes he’s printed at work and stuck in a folder. On the plane he leans back on the seat and barks out the day’s plan like that school teacher who tried to be everyone’s mate in class. But all in all, every trip needs an organiser because who the hell wants to have to sort all that out.

The Ladies’ Lad

He can be a mate of a mate lad or just a generally pal who steps into this mould but whoever does will have form and know he’s good. He’ll be a lady magnet for the rest of the group and break the ice with the opposite sex with ease leading everyone to nod and agree that the fella has graft.

The Fighter Lad

He’s a danger on a trip – but can also come in handy if you’re the one suddenly in the middle of a Latvian ruck. The Fighter Lad can be calm as anything dry, but get a few jars down him and one spilled drink, nudge on the dancefloor or wisecrack in the kebab queue could be enough to send him windmilling into whatever comes his way. Expect torn shirts and claret.

The Peacekeeper Lad

He’s the one with his arm round the foreigner with the bloody nose or the cop wanting details of what happened. He’s the guy who rings the landlord or smooths it over with the hotel when you’ve smeared the loo with sick or broken an antique coffee table and are being threatened with eviction or worse. He’s a wise old bean so let him do his thing. He’s like a hostage negotiator this Lad.

The Soft Drink Lad

He’s the fella who refuses to drink before the flight out, or when you land, then takes it easy because he’s ‘pacing’ himself. Do one! The thing with the Soft-drinker lad is you have to remember his soft drink on the round and order it on the end as if you’ve brought your nan on the trip.

The Strip Club Lad

He’s done his research and knows where the nearest red light district is. He’s early to test the water with his fellow lads to work out who might fancy an after hours dip into the rippers. He won’t go alone. He’s no stranger to a night at the pound-a-pot back home – and chances are he has a missus who’s utterly clueless about his naughty habit.

The mate-of-a-mate Lad

He’s the rogue operator. Can work one of two ways. He’s either a top lad who slots in like a dream early doors or he’s a nightmare, off his nut by 6pm, having to be taken home and generally being a 24 carat liability. That’s the gamble with an unknown quantity.

The Romantic Lad

He’s the kind of bloke who falls in love with a foreign lass on the first day, then spends the rest of the night and the trip with her, as if he’s come away with his missus. He’ll be sat in the corner pouring out his love for the lass while the rest of the boys are serving him abuse from the opposite side of the bar. Expect tears on the way home before he forgets and returns to normal life.

The Married Lad

He’s sometimes a safe bet for the whip and the organiser role – but can very easily hold multiple Lad titles, including Romantic Lad, Ladies’ Lad and Strip Club Lad. After all, this is a lad off his lead.

The Oversteps-the-mark Lad

He’s going to be a funny b*stard but make sure you aren’t in the firing line. He’s liable to shock with the kind of behaviour normally reserved for private schools and rugby club end of year parties.

The Early-Night Lad

He’s always the first to leave and could well slope off early without even saying. You get back to the hotel and find him a kip and listen to his poor excuse for vanishing. But deep down you know he just flaked and this is backed up on the second night when he does the same. Why come, mate?!

The Tourist Lad

He’s downloaded the Apps and already has in mind a few places he wants to visit that he read about online. He wants pace himself in the day and see a few sights, taken in a few galleries because he doesn’t want to booze around the clock. Let him do his thing and meet him later.

The Dad Lad

He’s a familiar face on stags – and rightly so. But can also be spotted knocking about with the younger fellas on a boys trip or sports tour. He’s a cheeky f*cker who can hold his own in both the boozing and the banter. But be warned as he can also wear many other Lad hats at the same time – especially the Early-Night Lad.

The Hungover Lad

He’s a right mess every day, morning and night – and if he’s the mate of a mate it’s even more of a ballache. This Lad can’t keep his booze down on the night or the day after. Very likely to chunder at the morning breakfast carve up of the night before. Who did what, who ended up where. He’ll be head down, taking deep breaths, before throwing up. But give him credit where credit’s due, he’ll be back on it.

The Gets-his-nob-out Lad

He’s usually all ball and no tool but that doesn’t stop him flopping out his old boy all round the clock. Goes hand-in-hand with public p*ssing so be careful if you’re walking or standing downwind of him. And be careful if he asks you if you like roses. You might well look down and find he’s clutching his scrunched up chap in his hand as a gift.
