No haggling at home for Brits.

BASHFUL Britons feel more comfortable haggling when on holiday than at home, research has found.

More than half (55%) of people prefer trying to knock money off a purchase when they are abroad rather than in the UK, according to the survey for Nationwide Building Society's Simply Rewards cashback scheme.

While seven in 10 (69%) people had attempted to barter in UK shops, this was mainly restricted to markets and car dealerships. Some 47% of people have haggled with market traders and 41% have bartered with car salesmen - but just 7% of people have ever tried to get money off their shopping while at the supermarket and 15% have asked for a discount in a clothing store.
