The average traveller takes three home comforts with them every time they go on holiday, according to research from Jet2Villas.
Two thirds (66%) of travellers revealed that they take at least one home comfort with them on holiday, whilst 20% take five with them.
Just over 40% of Brits take their own tea bags away with them and 15% turn the kettle on as soon as they arrive.
One in three travellers takes their own slippers on holiday with them, whilst 19% make sure they pack their own pillow before jetting off.
Interestingly, 10% of British travellers take their own cutlery and best china on holiday with them, whilst other popular home comforts include ketchup, dressing gowns, HP Sauce, Marmite and a photo of their pet.
The survey also looked at the aspect of home Brits wish they could take on holiday if they could, and 56% said they would take their own bed.
Taking the TV and the family car away on holiday also feature on the list, whilst 15% indicated that they would take a home-cooked meal with them.
Brits also revealed that privacy is incredibly important whilst on their holiday, although 50% said they had bumped into someone they know whilst away – of the 50%, half of those took deliberate steps to physically avoid them!
One in four (25%) travellers have bumped into a friend on holiday and one in ten (10%) have even bumped into a work colleague.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We recognise that travellers like to enjoy certain home comforts, in addition to switching off and getting away from it all when they are on their well-deserved holidays.”
