Cheating: Tenerife probably the Timeshare capitol of the world. The first question will always be “do you speak English?”. After that you may be asked to help them with a holiday questionnaire or the more common scratch card. These scratch cards are all winners. Prizes may be 3 days car hire, water park tickets, duty free packs or the star prize of a lot of money. Unless you want to sacrifice half a day of your holiday to a relentless hard sell, do not go with them to collect your prize!!! Remember, only the foolish or greedy will really believe that they are getting something for nothing!
