Write a Will and Protect Your Legacy

According to an article on Fin24, only about 10% of South Africans have a will. This seems like risky behaviour when the cost of drafting a will is the same amount you might spend on a gift for someone or a night out on the town. But in fact, a proper will could be the most important gift you ever give your loved ones besides having things like Life Insurance and Funeral Cover policies in place, so that they’re looked after when you’re gone. A will is a way of protecting your legacy and ensuring that after you pass away, your belongings and money are distributed as you want them to be.

High-Risk Activities & Life Insurance

As human beings, we're always pursuing meaningful experiences that add value to our lives. For some people, living life to the fullest often means pushing the boundaries. We want to accomplish great things before we depart this earth. That’s why we sometimes deliberately challenge our senses – which serve to shield us from danger – by engaging in extreme activities. We broaden our horizons by travelling to every country in the world, even the ones that top the "Most Dangerous Countries" list.

The Most Expensive Items in the World

With food prices expected to increase by 10% by the middle of this year, many South Africans will have to rely on a Personal Loan to make ends meet. But, even when money is tight and we've obtained some extra bucks to help us get through the month, we sometimes get tempted to spoil ourselves with luxury indulgences. There are many high-priced lifestyle options ordinary folk may desire such as a R2 000 pair of designer shoes or a meal worth R600 at an upscale restaurant. Then, there is a pair of headphones that is worth over R800 000.

Disgusting Things You May Be Eating

Are you aware of what you're eating? Of course you are, otherwise you wouldn't have ordered your favourite burger from your local fast food outlet. But do you know what it consists of? It may just seem like a tasty compilation of a bun, beef patty, cheese and tomato, but there may be more to that burger than meets the eye.

Leisure Activities Under R200

As we head into autumn, Mother Nature will be treating us to a few more weeks of extra daylight, clear skies and warm temperatures. Why not take advantage of the glorious weather and have some fun in the sun with your loved ones. If you prefer to seek excitement away from home, Travel Insurance may be all you need to ensure that your family enjoys a worry-free trip.
