What are the home comforts Brits won't holiday without?

Updated: 


Don't forget your... toilet paper and tea bags!

New research released this week by lowcostholidays.com, suggests Brits can't head off on holiday without our favourite loo roll, and tea bags for a familiar-tasting brew.

Surprisingly 25% of the 1,061 respondents also pack an alarm clock - perhaps to give them a head start with the poolside beach-towel-ritual in the mornings?

Other home comforts that find their way into Brits' suitcases include bacon, Marmite and, sadly for some, their work phone.

Packing techniques vary with 40% of respondents claiming to be 'pretty organised', 17% just chuck everything in at the last minute and just over 6% have the time to be meticulous packers, wrapping their clothes, layer by layer in tissue paper.

Pre-holiday preparations for those polled include 62% shopping for new items for the holiday and 13% using a sunbed or fake tan to avoid looking too pale.

And what about holidaywear? Over a quarter have clothes that they will only wear abroad, and just over 4% still choose to hit the beach in the classic sock-and-sandle combination.
