Workers' £2,500 snack bill

WORKERS fork out more than £2,500 a year typically for small purchases such as coffees, lunch and snacks, according to a report.

The research for Visa Contactless found that on average, the amount that people who travel to work spend on these small and regular purchases adds up to £10.59 a day. The survey of more than 2,100 commuters from across the UK found they will typically spend £3.69 on a lunch , £2.09 on hot drinks and £7.09 when popping to the shops. In Glasgow 81 per cent of workers still used cash to buy lunch whereas in London it fell to 55 per cent.
