Brits cut back on alcohol on holiday return

Brits returning from holidays abroad are increasingly looking to cut back on their alcohol consumption after over-indulging on their getaways, it has been claimed.

According to findings from the government's Know Your Limits campaign, almost a fifth of Brits returning from a holiday said they planned to not drink for at least two days a week.

Furthermore, 12 per cent said they planned to stop drinking for an entire month after their holiday.

As well as the impact that binge drinking can have on the body, Brits may also be wise to remember that being drunk when an incident occurs could make a travel insurance policy invalid.

Figures from the campaign suggested that around 27 per cent of Brits drink three times or more the amount they usually do while taking a holiday.

On average, beer drinkers consumed five pints a day on their holiday, with wine lovers polishing off as many as four glasses of wine on every day of their break.
