Top 10 Travel Essentials
As many of us start to get prepared for a summer getaway, it is time to stock up on those travel essentials. Vacation or staycation, the Post Office Shop has your holiday sorted.
With June temperatures reaching the heights last seen in the balmy summer of 1976, many of us are now ready for the start of the summer holidays. Therefore, making sure you have everything you need is essential.
According to a recent travel survey, we spend £96 million a year on replacing items we have forgot to pack for our holidays. Two thirds of us forget to pack our toothbrush or phone charger. 21% forget to take medication or a first aid kit on our travels.
In addition, one in ten British holiday makers admit they have forgotten their passport when setting off on their holiday overseas.
