    I'll be wanting to hire a sunbed for a couple of weeks again before I go on holiday. Last year I got a single one that just goes over a bed and i think it was about £25 for 2 weeks. Does this price sound about right?

    (oh im getting the sunbed so I dont burn when away and be in pain all week)

    just pay for sessions? Will surely work out cheaper and far less hassle :)

    Would it not be cheaper just to go to a local tanning place?

    I'm pretty sure you aren't supposed to use tanning beds more than a handful of times a year anyway!

    No, more expensive, because you have to pay £3 a pop or £20 for a string of sessions.

    I havent. I only use the hire ones because the short intense bursts that you pay for burn my skin as it need building up resistance. I use it for 2 15minute periods a day if possible. Its also a lot more relaxing to fall asleep on one (with the times of course!!)

    2 15 minute sessions a day is really not a good idea.

    black people still get sun burnt, my housemate was burnt a bit when he went to see his family in st kitts, he'd never used suncream before, but did after a few days!

    Yes i a have but im yet to get burnt - i think im immune to sun burn. if i survive the scotching sun of the sahara without sun cream i think im immune to that kind of burn. :)

    I didnt mean my original comment to offend, i just dont see the need for Sun bed....Let nature take it course. :D
