How the British Travel

Everyone loves a holiday! But the preparation can be a pretty stressful time. There’s so much to organise and remember. You write checklists for the essentials that your holiday simply cannot function without: passports, socket adapter, books, teabags - wait.

Yes you read that right. We Brits love a cup of tea, we rank among the top tea drinkers in the world, especially as we supposedly will not travel around without our tea! Research has found that almost a third of British holidaymakers always pack tea bags to accompany them on their travels. The survey questioned 2000 people on their travel habits and resulted in a few more surprising results.

Packing came under scrutiny from the research, providing an insight into the national approach to holidays. It would appear we are a nation of strict suitcases packers as well!
Joanna Wild, from The Co-operative Travel “It’s not just what we pack, it’s how we pack too. Brits seem to have strict rules for folding or rolling, layering and ordering items inside their case”. Are you a stickler for tetris like packing when it comes to holidays, is there always a box of tea packed? Let us know in the comments section below!
