It seems that Brits are actually quite cultured when holidaying abroad.
A recent survey by YouGov for iCarhireinsurance.com, a leading provider of independent car hire excess insurance, found that nearly two thirds (62%) always try the local food; over half (55%) like to go on cultural trips and explore the local area; and a third (33%) try to speak the local language.
However there are some things that we can't let go of when abroad.
Over a quarter (28%) have been frustrated by people not queuing and a fifth (20%) pack their favourite ‘British’ essentials (e.g. tea bags).
Over half (57%) also always pack enough underwear for every day of their holiday; with a third (30%) admitting to having washed their underwear in their hotel/accommodation sink.
It is perhaps reassuring to see that only 18% insist on accommodation with WIFI when on holiday.
Ernesto Suarez, Founder and CEO of iCarhireinsurance.com said:
“It seems that most Brits do try to embrace the local culture when they are on holiday, but there are some ‘British’ essentials that they just can't live without.”
“Another essential they might want to consider bringing with them is car hire excess insurance. The cover offered at the rental desk costs on average £100 for a week, over £79 more than a policy from iCarhireinsurance.com.”
