Paying for sun beds at shacks

Can someone help please. We normally go to North Goa and have never paid for sunbeds and umbrella at shacks as we eat and buy drinks from them. However, this year my daughter has just come back and said that she had to pay for beds. Is this the norm now? We are going to Cavelossim in the South and wonder whether we will have to pay for beds there as well. I know it is only a few rupees, but it all adds to the costs!

look, i've tried not to contribute to this post,but, i think i now have to!! if you don't want to pay to use a sunbed, then go to another shack that is not charging, that's what i would do.

when they relise they aren't getting any custom, they will probably revise their system.

not rocket science is it??

I personally always use a shack that doesn't charge for sunbeds.

We were in Candolim early in November and our usual shack was still being built so we tried quite a few different ones during the first week, some charged for sunbeds, we didn't revisit them again.

It's a no-brainer.

I don't think it was your post to Shassa that lgirl found argmentative, it was earlier posts.

Accusations of 'bullying the poor guys', a statement that us Brits don't want to pay for sunbeds purely to have more money to buy G&T & beers, reference to 'the Raj'.

Clear enough for you?

I've looked at a few of your posts in the India forum, vkb, and you seem to be very helpful to people asking about less mass tourist destinations.

Why is it when you get to the Goa sub-forum you seem to want to trash the attitudes, behaviour and opinions of the British?

vkb - prettypolly has answered the question for me.

What I would suggest is that you re-read some of your comments on the Goa forum. If you still can't see that what you write is rude and offensive then I am afraid there is not much hope for you.

I certainly do not have the time or the will to join in any debate with you so you will have to try and figure this out on your own.
