Calling all smokers. A dream ticket for two to Paradise Island - for all of you!
Sorry to remind all you died in the wool smokers but November was Lung Cancer Awareness month. But no don't click away - spare a few moments of your time, please ::
If hard words on packets wash over you, let me put the financial case to you for quitting. As well as feeling healthier I can offer you a holiday on Paradise Island in the Maldives, for two, for every year of your longer life!!
OK, I know you don't believe me. Let's explain. Say the average smoker is 40 and smokes 20 a day. With cigarettes at GBP5.00 a packet that's GBP1,800 a year. Then you'll save loads on the cost of your life, critical illness and medical insurance. Just how much was highlighted in a recent snapshot study by;
This found that the average smoker paid 56% more for life insurance than a non-smoker.
Therefore, giving up could easily save you GBP50 per month on your various insurance premiums. So as a non-smoker you could be GBP2,400 per year better off.
Wearing a financial hat I can show you that if a 40 year old man put those savings into a personal pension plan with NFU, then at 5% per annum growth, he'll have a healthy retirement fund of GBP97,860. On retirement that could give an in the pocket tax-free sum of GBP24,465, plus an annual lifetime income of GBP3,830 (or GBP5,100 per year if the tax-free cash was left in the pension).
On the other hand let's have a life of fun!
For GBP2,400 you can have a 5 star 10 day holiday for two on Paradise Island in the Maldives. Give up being a smoker for life and you could afford to go back to Paradise Island every year!
