Women forget to pack essential items when going on holiday

Nearly three quarters of women forget to pack essential items when they head on holiday.

A study by Sofitel has found that 73 per cent of women forget something when packing and the company now offer a special complimentary emergency kit at their McGallery hotels.

If you are staying with them, you can pick up the complimentary package, which includes make up remover, nail polish remover, hair ties and pins as well as moisturiser and sunscreen.

Bridie Commerford, Vice President of Marketing, Communications and Guest Relations for AccorHotels Pacific, said: "Over 80 per cent of guests in our MGallery by Sofitel hotels in Australia are female, so it was important for us to bring in feminine touches to enrich the guest experience, and the Inspired by Her program certainly does that. Having listened to what women want, we are extremely proud to be launching the Inspired By Her programme across our network. 8 out of 10 men surveyed also told us that they were supportive of a female orientated hospitality programme. Through the emergency kits, wellbeing experiences and food and beverage offerings, we hope Inspired by Her will ensure our guests feel welcome."

The Inspired By Her programme will see select MGallery by Sofitel hotels add more light and healthy meals to their menus as well as dishes which have been made especially to inspire women. They have also developed special cocktails with women in mind that include champagne and fruit. There is also a special service where women can call down to reception and order a beautiful pot of tea to their room.
