Samantha Womack, known for her role in Eastenders put on her favourite sundress today to launch the Post office Travel Essentials campaign.
The average Brit spends two hours each week trying to find a holiday online and the Post Office has found a way to cut the additional admin time people spend getting ready for their travels.
Samantha said: “I’m so happy to be dusting off my summer holiday clothes to launch the Post Office Travel campaign. The opportunities to wear them in the UK this year have been few and far between.
"Despite this sudden burst of sunshine, I can’t wait to go away with my family for a much needed break.
“Planning holidays has been stressful in the past, but the Post Office makes it simple to get all the admin sorted, so you can focus on more important things like where you’re going and what you’re going to do. It’s the perfect one-stop shop for all your travel needs!”
Samantha is not the only one who wanted to reduce the amount of paperwork involved in organising a holiday, as half of holiday makers want somewhere they can go to get all of their holiday paperwork in one, such as insurance, passports and travel money.
Paul Havenhand, Head of Travel at the Post Office, said:
“Now more than ever, customers are looking for more choice and flexibility as well as an easy and hassle-free way to get all their essentials under one roof – and the Post Office is the perfect place for holidaymakers to do this.
"Sun-seekers can concentrate on the more exciting parts of going abroad while we can look after the essentials.”
