Hidden charges for using credit and debit cards or mobile phones abroad top the list of holiday irritants for Britons, a new survey by Post Office Travel Services has revealed.
The study also found that six out of ten biggest holiday grumbles were related to the cost of exchanging money abroad, the pressure to leave tips even when service is poor, and the feeling that tourists get charged exorbitantly high rates.
Helen Warburton, Post Office head of travel said: "Our research showed that UK tourists are particularly irritated by the high charges for using mobile phones abroad and for using credit and debit cards to get cash abroad or make purchases."
She advised: "Keep the phone for emergencies, turn the answer machine facility off to avoid expensive incoming calls and get holiday cash in advance, without paying commission or incurring high ATM charges."
