Summer Holidays and How We Can Help Our Customers during the Holidays

SafariRemit is a fintech company dedicated to offering money remittance services to our customers.

Perhaps, we are a fintech company always on standby to help our customer's needs during the holiday season.

Because our services are offered only to UK customers, we are aware that our customers know that as the days get warmer, the prospect of the summer holidays draws close.

Because many individuals love spending time with their families, it often affects their business during the summer holidays.

The summer holiday is an annual ritual to take a break from their normal daily activities, such as their businesses, jobs, skills, etc., to have fun and spend time with their families and loved ones.

As one of the best fintech companies in the UK, our care for our customers does not diminish during the much-loved summer holiday, everyone is longing for.


How can you stay safe during the summer holiday

In the UK, we all know that the summer season is primarily hot because of weather changes; there are diverse ways you can stay safe, especially from the heat.

Below is our concise advice to our customers on how they can be safe during the summer holidays:

#1. Keep cool and hydrated
We all know that water is one of the essential elements for all living things, and over 50% of the human adult body is made of water.

Water, one of the essential elements in the human body, aids digestion, prevents constipation, cushions joints, stabilizes the heartbeat, and protects vital organs and tissues.

We advise that you drink plenty of water during the summer because a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention documented that daily fluid intake varies by age, sex, pregnancy, and breastfeeding.

You can start by drinking a cup of water each morning when you wake up or a glass before bed. Also, you can as well have another glass of water during a meal.

To avoid dehydration, drink fluids often throughout the summer.

In addition to drinking enough fluids, ensure that you check your urine. According to doctors, a good measurement of hydration is the color of your urine. So you should know that when your urine is darker, it is a sign that you need water.

Also, when your urine is dark yellow or amber, it simply means that you may have mild to severe dehydration.

Are you a fan of alcohol, sugary drinks, or caffeine? Do you know that some liquids work against hydration?

These drinks contain sugar, and they help remove water from your tissues. Because of this, we recommend that you swap some of these drinks with more water.

#2. Booking holidays if the destination country requires vaccination records or PCR test
While booking summer holidays, you need to be prepared. In this scenario, check for any vaccinations recommended or required for the area where you intend to spend your summer holidays.

Also, never allow sickness to spoil your summer holiday or get stopped at the airport because you don't have all the vaccinations that are required for your desired destination.

Further, although the summer holiday can be excellent if well planned, travel with essentials such as a first aid kit, food, and water supplies, etc., you should know that when you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.

#3. Applying sunscreens to prevent sunburns
First, we want to inform you that sunscreens are products that, once applied, absorb, scatter, and reflect UV radiation to help prevent damage from the sun's harmful UV rays.

To prevent sunburns, we recommend that you apply at least 1 ounce of sunscreen daily, 15 to 30 minutes before exposure to sunlight during the summer.

Also, ensure that you reapply the sunscreen every 2 hours or sooner if you have been swimming or sweating.

Furthermore, don't forget to apply sunscreen to your lips. In this case, you can use a lip balm with at least an SPF 30.


How To Enjoy Your Summer Holidays For You And Your Family

Do you know that bonding with your family is one of the best things you can do over vacation?

Below are the best ways you can enjoy the summer holidays with your family:

#1: Disconnect
To disconnect, turn off your mobile phones and shut off your computers. Disconnect from all social media noise and enjoy your time with your family. Bonding with your family is one of the best things you can do over vacation.

Make summer bonding dates with your family more special with these tips to keep the fun going and bring everyone closer.

Ensure that you're worry-free and have closer contact with your loved ones.

#2: Plan your vacation together
As a parent, don't tie vacation planning alone. Ensure that your children sit together and list their interests and preferences as a family.

#3: Reserve meal times for family
Every parent knows the joy that comes when they enjoy meals together with their children.

Being together during meal times, whether at home or outside, positively impacts the children's values and self-esteem.


How We Can Help Our Customers during the Summer Holidays

Our marketing team has made crazy plans to help our customers during the summer holidays. Here are how you can benefit from using our services, especially during the summer holiday:

#1. Through Promotions
We have realised that consumers love knowing they got a deal, especially purchasing something.

We at SafariRemit have decided to create promotions that will run during the summer holidays to help all our customers regardless of the transaction they carried out on our platform. This is to appreciate them for using our services.

For all transactions carried out during the summer holidays, you will receive a 0% commission on your fees.    

The promotions we have during the summer holidays are there to encourage our customers that we love and care for them. Also, to show that we value your interest in the use of our services.

As our customer, you should expect lower overall transaction costs and zero commission fees during the summer holiday.

#2. By Expanding Our Community during the Summer Holiday
Since schools are not in session during the summer period, and most parents are looking to spend time with their kids and loved ones, our customers can enjoy our promotional offers, which they will be notified of through our online community.

We will often publish newsletters in our online community to announce to our customers the latest events they can benefit from during the summer holiday.

Our online community includes our social media handles, where we will announce all our offers available for our customers during the summer holidays.

Also, we will use other mediums such as emails to reach out to our noble customers on the discounts we have made available for every transaction carried out during the summer holidays. This discount will be available in all the supported countries on our website.

Perhaps, even if you don't intend to join our community, we will create advert campaigns that will run through search engines down to social media platforms to inform not just our customers alone but also to create awareness for other individuals who may have an interest in using our services for their transactions.

#3. Extending Our Business Hours
Because days are longer during the summer season, people stay out longer than in the regular seasons; our customer service team will also ensure to keep our customers in check by extending our business hours.

Also, our customers can utilise our referral scheme to earn some money for themselves and those they invite (friends & family)

One of the ways we have planned to help our customers during the summer holidays is by prolonging our business hours to enable our customers to take advantage of the longer days that occur during the summer holidays.

To ensure that all our customers get in touch during our extended hours, we will be available to respond to your email inquiries until 10 pm.

This will help every customer to be aware of the current time frame we are working with during the summer holidays. Then, perhaps, we will return to our regular business hours once the summer holidays are over.

#4. We May Likely Offer Internships
We've noticed that the summer is quite a busy season for so many businesses, one of the ways that SafariRemit planned on managing our duty in helping our youth from the community we serve is by offering or hiring internships, which will be coupled with our full or part-time employees.

In this scenario, we may likely accept interns from high school and college students looking for work during the Summer holidays.

Perhaps, most of the people we will accept as interns are likely to have a passion for learning new things, and the goal is for them to gain experience.

One of our primary targets for this internship is to enable people to gain hands-on experience from our company in the future. Also, our training will help us gain motivated and reliable workers during the Summer crunch.

Being a company licensed by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to carry payment services under the Payment Services Regulations 2017, we take our duties as a      financial services employer very seriously. Also, we will make it worthwhile for our interns.

Besides this, we planned our interns to ensure everyone enrolled for our internship programs gains valuable experience from working with us.

Through our internships, we can train and motivate our interns who may be employed as part of our valuable staff in the future.
