Brits 'unable to resist lure of the hotel minibar'

Stag parties who just don't want the night to end will no doubt be familiar with the lure of the hotel minibar - and the treats on offer prove too much for most Brits to resist, it would seem.

According to research by Hotels.com, UK tourists rack up tabs totalling a whopping £526 million a year by raiding the minibar in their hotel room.

Brits proved the third-biggest spenders in Europe, behind only the Irish and Swedish, with the average UK guest spending more than £15 on minibar drinks and snacks when they go away.

Director of communications for Hotels.com Alison Couper said Britons are "clearly unable to resist the temptations of the hotel minibar", but savvy travellers did have a few tricks up their sleeves.

The study found that one in ten UK travellers admitted to "minibar meddling" by replacing drinks taken from the fridge with cheaper alternatives bought from local shops or supermarkets.

This comes after a survey by TripAdvisor found that Brits are among the most "hotel-proud" tourists in Europe, with many taking care to make their beds or hang up used towels during their stay.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19084652-ADNFCR
