Holidays are one of the joys of life and staying in a hotel is part of the experience. Packing their belongings and staying somewhere for a night or longer, Britons take some pretty important items with them on holidays.
After a holiday, packing up and going home can be stressful.
Which is why many Britons forget things in their hotel rooms.
The most common items include the usual culprits.
Many holidaymakers leave behind chargers for mobile phones, smart devices, kindles and laptops.
They may also forget the devices themselves, as well as books, teddy bears or toiletry bags with all their content.
Also common is to forget jewellery, clothing or toys.

And for those who travel for work, business papers, notebooks and presentations are also often forgotten in the rush to check out and go home.
But some items are quirkier than all those common items.
And Travelodge has named some of the weirdest belongings left behind in its rooms.
The 2021 Travelodge Lost & Found audit found wedding-related items are a growing trend for forgetful guests.
One couple even left their marriage certificate behind when they rushed out to catch their honeymoon flight.
A bespoke 5ft wedding cake piñata was forgotten by a groom, which prompted the Edinburgh Central Travelodge Plus’s hotel team to have to step in and get the item to the reception in time for the cake-cutting ceremony.
A bridesmaid forgot the bride’s pet lovebirds, Will and Kate, “due to being too focused on her ‘bad hair day’.”
And one bride forgot one of her Jimmy Choo Cinderella shoe, leaving the hotel for her own wedding reception in trainers.
Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge spokeswoman said: “In 2021, following Freedom Day, we welcomed back millions of customers to our 582 UK Travelodge hotels and we saw a significant increase in bookings.
“This has led to a range of interesting items being left behind by our customers across our UK hotels.
“This year’s Lost & Found audit includes a DJI Phantom 4 Drone, a Pomsky called Beyoncé, a 5ft wedding cake piñata, a GT V8 Bentley convertible car and even Cinderella’s shoe.
“When it comes to why so many of our customers forget their treasured items, it’s basically due to us all being time poor, juggling multiple tasks and being in a hurry to get from A to B. In the rush, valuable possessions are easily forgotten.”
On the list, items such as a suitcase full of Blackpool rock, a large jar labelled ‘Brighton Sea Air’ and a dress made out of postcards were named.
Pets are also, incredibly, forgotten at hotels, including a cute Pomsky dog called Beyoncé and a miniature horse called Red Rum.
Even more incredible, someone forgot a brand-new Bentley convertible car at Stratford upon Avon Travelodge Plus.
