Holiday Inn Vancouver-Centre (Broadway) Review

IMG 0983

I spent last week in Vancouver and stayed at the Holiday Inn Vancouver at Broadway for two days.

Vancouver in September is an expensive hotel market and most hotels in the downtown area charge $200+ for regular rooms. Broadway is 4 stops from downtown via the SkyTrain line (which also runs to the airport). I actually preferred the area in comparison to the downtown island.

I opted to use 20,000 IHG points in lieu of paying the room rate.

Secured and Unsecured Credit Cards for Bad Credit

Secured and Unsecured Credit Cards for Bad Credit

Consumers with poor credit and a low credit score may feel downhearted about rebuilding their credit or obtaining new credit, but many credit card companies offer cards for customers with below average credit. One of the best ways to improve your credit is through the responsible use of a credit card and there are several options available based on your credit score.

Poor credit is generally said to be a score of 600-649 while bad credit is a score below 600. Depending on your score, you may need to apply for a secured credit card with a guaranteed approval in order to rebuild your credit or you could qualify for an unsecured credit card with a high interest rate, a high annual fee and/or a low credit line. Prepaid debit cards, unlike credit cards, do not provide a line of credit and do not influence your credit history, so this post will concentrate only on credit cards.

At 76 square miles, Grand Cayman is the largest of three Caribbean islands. It's a stunning destination, famous for its clear blue seas that are just perfect for scuba diving shipwrecks and snorkeling. Beach lovers and sun-worshipers love Grand Cayman Island, as do forest hikers.

These dates are towards the end of the rainy season and October traditionally has some of the highest rainfall. It's 80-95 degrees at this time of year so expect warm, rainy days.

US dollars are readily accepted across the island and the rate is generally US$1 to KYD (Caymanian dollar) 0.80c. It's visa-free for US residents.

You can search this flight on Skyscanner and book through GotoGate, where the results are in GBP.
