In the survey of more than a thousand customers who had just got back from their hols, 35% of men told us that they write a list before packing their bags and nearly half (45%) unpack and put everything away as soon as they arrive at their holiday accommodation. They probably even use our holiday checklist like good boys too!
Ladies on the other hand tend to be less efficient, with 53% of our female customers packing unnecessary items and carting unworn clothes home again. Sound familiar?
And if youre travelling over Christmas, dont expect a fantastic present from the men in your family. The poll shows that 40% of British fellas aged between 18 and 30 who are spending the festive season overseas plan to buy gifts at the airport to save packing space.
A fifth (22%) of guys aged 50-65 and 15% between 18 and 30 intend to buy smaller gifts than usual so they can squeeze them into their case!
