But not to worry, as there are clever ways to avoid this holiday mishap. The following hack might be just the answer...

Jaiden Animations took to Twitter to share his mum's packing secret, which involves putting a little square of cling film over your liquids before putting the lid back on, in order to offer another layer of protection should the lid come loose.

The tweet read: "[I don't know] if this is common knowledge but my mom showed me this hack to prevent leaking liquids for traveling/packing".

Simple and clever.

© Provided by Hearst Communications, Inc Twitter was quick to praise the hack and thank Jaiden for sharing the knowledge, with one user actually trying the hack with their coffee and confirming it does work. She wrote: "I did this today with my coffee, put a plastic bag over it closed the top and put it in my backpack and biked, it worked."

So there you have it. Will you give this a go?
