700Vincent Duggleby and guests take calls and e mails on holiday finances.

If you're planning a holiday this summer in a troubled Eurozone country, you may want advice about travel money or insurance.

Is it better to take cash; cards or a pre-paid card? What will your travel insurance policy cover you for in case of local strikes; a holiday supplier closing down or even civil unrest?

And long-haul, short-haul, or just a mini-break, how can you be sure you're getting the best value for money? Whatever your plans, ask our panel of experts for their tips on making the most of your time away.

If you're looking for a cheap holiday, should you buy early or wait for a last-minute bargain?
What are the pitfalls of using debit or credit cards abroad? Do prepaid cards offer the best deals?
What is ATOL protection and how might consumers benefit from changes in the law brought in earlier this year?
What are your rights if your holiday is cancelled, your luggage lost or your flight delayed?
And what are the do's and don'ts of car hire?
The number to ring: 03 700 100 444. Lines open at 1pm. Or e mail moneybox@bbc.co.uk
Vincent Duggleby will be joined by:
