How to Haggle Like a Pro

He Who Dares, Rodney, He Who Dares

We all know that feeling of wanting to haggle, only to be held back by the sense that it’s a bit cheeky or will make things awkward, so instead we keep quiet and pay the price.

But our annual Haggling Index shows things are changing. We surveyed more than 2,000 adults in the UK and found people are being bolder and more fearless with their haggling attempts.

There has been an 11% increase in the number of us who feel determined and a 15% fall in those who feel embarrassed to try haggling. And it’s paying off. The 56% of us who regularly haggle are saving, on average, £477 each year – £20 up on 2018 and £62 up on 2016.
