Brit tourists ”getting better” at complaining

The Abta says it is good to complain, but greviances are sometimes ridiculousBritish tourists are getting better at complaining and standing up for themselves on holiday, but some are taking it a step too far, according to the Association of British Travel Agents (Abta).

An Abta spokesperson told the Times: "We should complain more, [because if] you don”t complain, the tour operator doesn”t get the chance to put things right", adding that some complaints were getting "ridiculous".

The newspaper lists a series of comical, often bizarre, complaints that British travellers have made in various places.

For instance, a holidaymaker in St Kitts demanded to move to another hotel after saying that she "could hear the sea waves breaking on the shore", while a customer at the Malmaison hotel in Birmingham claimed that the night-lights in his room made him think "the walk-in wardrobe was the loo".

The article concluded with an anecdote about an angry British traveller telling a waiter in Meribel in France that he should treat his customers as kings – "le client est roi" – to which the waiter replied: "But don”t you know what we did to our kings?"
