More than a quarter of Brits have forgotten to take their travel companion on holiday with them.

A hapless 53% of people surveyed confessed that in the past 18 months, they’ve experienced a post-pandemic mishap when jetting abroad, with 28% of those confessing to leaving their passports at home – and 26% left their friend or family member behind.

Another 27% booked a hotel for the wrong dates, while 24% of those asked brought the wrong currency with them.

But to cheer people up from their holiday disasters, Hotels.com are giving one person the chance to win a £10,000 holiday voucher by sharing their funniest travel fails on the @hotelsdotcomuk Twitter page between now and 18 October.

Gaffe-prone Joey Essex is spearheading the competition – and may even be a contender himself.

He said: “Hotels.com has got your back though, with a proper banging £10K towards a trip of a lifetime that’ll make your mates well jel. But that reminds me… where did I put my passport?”
