Packing – a battle of the sexes

It may come as a surprise that women are better at packing to go on holiday, according to a Holiday Extras survey. The misconception is that women pack more, which may be true sometimes, but the survey revealed that women will wear most of the clothes they pack, whereas men return with 20% of the clothes in their suitcase unworn.

In the web survey of 600 customers, men were far more savvy when it came to shoe packing however. 92% of them get away with three pairs or fewer whereas a quarter of women surveyed claim to take between four and nine pairs, with 7% even admitting to taking over 10 pairs!

Holiday Extras beauty expert, Michele Betzner, advises laying clothes out before packing to avoid taking similar items, restricting your colour range so more things coordinate and settling on three multi-purpose pairs of shoes plus some flip flops.

Follow these tips and you could have cheaper hold luggage or avoid charges altogether by reducing your luggage to carry-on only. It will make travelling easier too as no one enjoys lugging a huge suitcase around a new holiday destination, especially if you have to get to your accommodation by public transport.
