A new survey by eShores, a luxury travel company in the UK, has found that 80% of people lose, forget or have their items stolen when on holiday.

Of the items that went missing, only 40% were ever returned, and people appeared to lose a range of different things while on holiday, the most common being sunglasses, camera, clothing, purse/wallet and jewellery.

According to the results, those travelling from Northern Ireland were the most likely to come back with a lighter suitcase, with 94% of them returning home with fewer personal belongings than they originally went away with.

Other findings revealed that holidaymakers lost an average of £176 worth of personal belongings, adding up to £1,760 over ten years.
