After buying a parasol abroad last year and having to leave it there I am considering either a 'foldabrella' or a suntent of some description. Which do you think would be more useful for a family with two under 4s? I think the tent would be good for the beach but the parasol better for the pool. Or do most of you buy a cheap parasol and leave it there? Seems very wasteful!
I always buy one and leave it with someone. They seldom cost more than a few euros. I have also taken them plenty of times, never any trouble getting them on a flight as odd size luggage. I have a pop up and framed beach tent.The pop up is too flimsy, but both take up a lot of suitcase space. They are useless anywhere windy.
