Travel Complaints….on a lighter note….lol

I came across this article from Thomas Cook holidays  listing some guests’ genuine complaints during the season:

1. “I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local store does
not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts.”

2. “It’s lazy of the local shopkeepers to close in the afternoons. I often
needed to buy things during ‘siesta’ time. This should be banned.”

3. “On my holiday to Goa in India I was disgusted to find that almost every
restaurant served curry. I don’t like spicy food at all.”

4. “We booked an excursion to a water park but no one told us we had to
bring our swimming costumes and towels.”

5. “The beach was too sandy.”

6. “We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure
shows the sand as yellow but it was white.”

7. “Topless sunbathing on the beach should be banned. The holiday was
ruined, as my husband spent all day looking at other women.”

8. “No one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were

9. “There was no egg slicer in the apartment.”

10. “We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers, as
they were all Spanish.”

11. “The roads were uneven.”

12. “It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It took the
Americans only three hours to fly home.”

13. “I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment to our friends’
three-bedroom apartment. Ours was significantly smaller.”

14. “The brochure stated: ‘No hairdressers at the accommodation’. We’re
trainee hairdressers – will we be OK staying there?”

15. “There are too many Spanish people. The receptionist speaks Spanish. The
food is Spanish. Too many foreigners now live abroad.”

16. “We had to queue outside, with no air conditioning.”

17. “It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly
guests before we travel.”

18. “I was bitten by a mosquito. No one said they could bite.”

19. “My fiance and I booked a twin-bedded room but we were placed in a
double-bedded room. We now hold you responsible for the fact that I find
myself pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room
that we booked.”
