TRAVEL agency Thomas Cook has released a list of the most eyebrow-raising complaints received by holidaymakers.
Among the biggest inconveniences suffered by moaning Brits were shops closing during siesta time and Spanish-speaking taxi drivers.
Below are the ‘best’ of the worst:
- I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local convenience store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts.
- It’s lazy of the local shopkeepers in Puerto Vallarta to close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during ‘siesta’ time — this should be banned.
- On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don’t like spicy food.
- We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our own swimsuits and towels. We assumed it would be included in the price.
- We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish.
- The roads were uneven and bumpy, so we could not read the local guide book during the bus ride to the resort. Because of this, we were unaware of many things that would have made our holiday more fun.
- There were too many Spanish people there. The receptionist spoke Spanish, the food was Spanish. No one told us that there would be so many foreigners.
- I was bitten by a mosquito. The brochure did not mention mosquitoes.
