Jurys Inn reveals the weird and wonderful items Brits pack
- A fifth of travelers pack their favourite tea and coffee while on business trips
- Quirky items like their own bed sheets and framed photos of pets make the list, but we forget essentials; like chargers, toothbrushes and toiletries
- Jurys Inn, who recently won Best Small Hotel Group at the 2018 Business Travel Awards, are rolling out ‘Off the Shelf’, a lobby shop which stocks essentials for guests who’ve forgotten items while working away from home
New research from Jurys Inn has revealed the weird and wonderful items Brits pack when travelling for work, and it shows us to be a nation of real softies (and caffeine addicts). The daily grind is taking its toll as tea and coffee tops the list – with a fifth of workers packing their own stash while on business trips.
The anticipated caffeine kick clearly isn’t enough to get us out of the hotel’s bespoke DREAM Bed, as trusty alarm clocks came in second while, bizarrely, bed sheets and pillows came in third!
The list is rounded off with cuddly toys, hot water bottles and framed pictures of pets accounting for 23 percent of comfort items to take – showing us Brits to be a real nation of softies.
It seems that while we are cramming these bizarre items into our bags, even though Jurys Inn hotels do their upmost to accommodate quirky requests, the everyday essentials are falling by the wayside. 1 in 5 flustered Briton’s are forgetting essential items like a toothbrush or toiletries, and it’s revealed 12 percent of us regularly forget our chargers.
Jurys Inn understands how stressful travelling for work can be, so has introduced an ‘Off the Shelf’ lobby shop in selected hotels so that you can cross a few items off your to-pack list. ‘Off the Shelf’ offers a wide range of travel essentials from toiletries to chargers, and sweet and savoury snacks to ensure guests stay happy and stress free.
Jurys Inn Head of Marketing, Suzanne Cannon, said: “We are honoured to have received the Best Small Hotel Group award at the Business Travel Awards, for the second year running. We strive to ensure all our guests Stay Happy whether travelling for business or leisure.
“This research shows that business travellers pack their own bed sheets and personal tea and coffee, but at Jurys Inn all these items are provided in every room. What’s more, the bespoke DREAM bed by Jurys Inn, featuring intelligent body support, as well as a bespoke feather and down duvet and plush pillows, allows guests to experience unparalleled levels of comfort.
“Those trusty essentials that guests seem to forget, like chargers, are now available at our Off the Shelf offering so you don’t have to worry and can focus on the work at hand”.
All Jurys Inn hotels are ideally situated in central locations, convenient for travel and city centre business meetings and attractions, to offer a seamless experience for those travelling with work. So, if you’re looking for award-winning comfort and style whilst away, why not Stay Happy with Jurys Inn.
