British holidaymakers splash out an average of £610 on meals and snacks during a fortnight abroad - spending nearly four hours every day eating.

All-inclusive travellers in particular get their money's worth by loading up on buffet food and drinking as much alcohol as they can. One in four overindulge so much that they go on a post-holiday detox diet to lose the extra pounds.
