Forgetful Brits are jetting off without some holiday essentials, research shows.

Brits are getting caught up in the excitement of going on holiday - to the point where three out of ten admit to forgetting some crucial items, according to research.

The item left behind most often was the humble toothbrush, according to the survey - forgotten by 22% of absent-minded holidaymakers.

And even though Brits rarely need them at home, another one in five managed to jet off without their sunglasses.

Cameras and the vital first aid kit were frequently overlooked too, but worryingly, two out of ten said they had forgotten contact details for important services such as their bank or even their travel insurance provider.

But not all tourists had insurance in the first place - nearly one in three Brits who admitted that they had neglected to take out a policy. A further one in five had not applied to renew their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).

Still, at least they were not all among the one in three who said that they had forgotten to pack their suitcases at all.
