brits abroadA LIST of genuine complaints made by British holidaymakers when abroad has been compiled on the twitter account @HolidayComplain.

From minature golf that was ‘too small’ to sand that was ‘too sandy’, it’s clear some Brits just aren’t getting what they were promised in the brochure.

Here are some of the best:

1) “Spotting the visibly aroused elephant ruined my honeymoon in Thailand by making me feel inadequate.”

2) “The Fanta orange in Spain was a lot more Fanta-y than the Fanta at home.”

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

4) “You said the town was next to a volcano, but we went and there was no lava. I’m pretty sure it was just a mountain.”

5) “No one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled.”

6) “My fiancé and I booked a twin-bedded room but we were placed in a double. I’m now pregnant.”

7) “The bottle of shampoo provided at the hotel was clearly meant for midgets.”

8) “There was a do not disturb sign on the back of my door in my room. I was confused and thought the staff had locked me in.”

9) “The maid who cleaned our room made our towel into a swan shape. I don’t like swans.”

10) “They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax.”

11) “When they said the flight was 11 hours long we didn’t think we’d actually be sitting on an aeroplane for 11 hours.”

12) “The brochure said: No hairdressers at the resort. We’re trainee hairdressers and we think they knew it and made us wait longer for drinks.”

13) “The sand was too sandy.”

14) “The miniature golf was too small.”

15) “Our jug of sangria didn’t have a wide-ranging fruit selection in it.”

16) “We went to Turkey and there was far too many Turkish people for our liking.”

17) “The waiters were too nice so I felt obliged to tip them more and spent far more money than I would have liked.”

18) “The food was so cheap by the time we got home I’d put on half a stone.”

19) “The beach was full of kids making sand castles and noise. It was difficult to concentrate on my book.”

20) “The beans on my Full English definitely weren’t Heinz.”
