Brits are flexing their bartering skills to bag more on their holidays, according to new research revealed by Travelex.

A survey of 2,000 holidaymakers found that more than 60% of Brits have admitted to securing themselves a bargain by haggling whilst on holiday.

It comes as over one tenth of people have even admitted to choosing their holiday destinations based on where they can buy cheaper goods.

When it comes to getting as much bang for your buck, it seems Brits are savvier than ever with almost 40% of Brits having saved between £11 and £30 using their haggling skills whilst abroad and some admitting to saving more than £100.

The results also found some interesting gender differences, with men more content on driving the price down on goods; three times more men than women have shaved off more than £250 on the full price of an item.

Topping the list of the most popular items to bag a bargain on is leather, with more than a third of Brits looking to get a discount whilst on holiday, followed by handbags and jewellery.

According to the survey, the best places to secure a bartering bargain abroad include Turkey, Spain, Greece, Morocco and Thailand.
