Holiday Complaints

While the British government is attempting to curb the fraudulent serious complaints that British tourists are known to be making to seek compensation, it may be amusing to browse through some real complaints received by “Thomas Cook Holidays”.

  1. “On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don’t like spicy food.”
  2. “They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax.”
  3. "We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish.”
  4. “We booked an excursion to a water park but noone told us we had to bring our own swimsuits and towels. We assumed it would be included in the price.”
  5. “The beach was too sandy. We had to clean everything when we returned to our room.”
  6. “We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as white but it was more yellow.”
  7. “No-one told us there would be fish in the water. The children were scared.”
  8. “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.”
  9. “Although the brochure said that there was a fully equipped kitchen, there was no eggslicer in the drawers.”

  1. “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.”
  2. “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.”
  3. “It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It took the Americans only three hours to get home. This seems unfair.”
  4. “I compared the size of our one-bedroom suite to our friends’ three-bedroom and ours was significantly smaller.”
  5. “The brochure stated: ‘No hairdressers at the resort.’ We’re trainee hairdressers and we think they knew and made us wait longer for service.”
  6. “When we were in Spain, 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.” 
  7. “We had to line up outside to catch the boat and there was no air-conditioning.” 
  8. “It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel.”
