Hordes of holidaymakers fritter foreign currency away on unnecessary purchases just to use all their money up.
Two in three tourists use all the money they take away with them, a survey by travel agent sunshine.co.uk found.
Of those who spend all their foreign currency, 88 per cent admitted to “frittering it” on not-really-wanted items.
Others said they just “couldn’t be bothered” to change the money back, while the average amount spent on unnecessary items was £150.
The poll involved 2,168 people who had been abroad in the last 12 months.
