Brits spend £1billion replacing holiday items they forgot to pack

We've all been there; you get to your hotel, unpack your bags and realise you've left that essential item back at home.

Of course in most cases it's not particularly stressful as you can just pop to nearby shops and pick up a replacement.

But research from Travelodge has revealed that this comes with a high price as Brits are collectively spending £1BILLION on replacing those forgotten items.

That's because 67 per cent of UK holidaymakers are forgetting to pack two essential items for their trips, despite dedicating nearly a day to packing.

On average Brits will spend an average of £35 to replace things they already own.

Key items include a toothbrush, phone charger, sunglasses, perfume/aftershave, swimwear, sandals, toiletries, books, toys for the children and sun cream.

That can all add up especially when you consider that Brits already spend an average £142 on new purchases for their holidays such as clothing, shoes, accessories and even gadgets.

To give you a helping hand this summer, Travelodge has put together a few suitcase packing tips that could help you ensure you've got everything you need.
