Post Office Credit Card: Holidaymakers send billions before they get away

The average British holidaymaker spends £121 in preparation for a trip abroad, according to new research for the Post Office Credit Card.

Around six million people are expected to spend over £200 on items they will take away with them and in total as much as £4.1 million will be spent by Brits with a holiday planned.

According to the research, 61 per cent of women decide to treat themselves to a new pair of shoes for their holiday, while 78 per cent of women said they plan to update their wardrobe with some new clothes to take away.

Gary Fitton, head of the Post Office Credit Card, said: "People want to make sure they look their best and have fun on holiday, and for many this means a lot of preparation before they even board the flight - spending that perhaps isn't always realised in the total cost of a holiday."

The Post Office is now also a provider of travel insurance policies.
