Friday Fun - Funny Holiday Complaints

Here is a selection of funny holiday complaints received by holiday companies and tour operators. I hope these funny holiday complaints will make you smile. Like me you will probably be amazed at how stupid, outrageous and ridiculous these complaints really are. Enjoy, and have a great weekend!!

The Funny Holiday Complaints

  • “The street signs weren’t in English. I don’t understand how anyone can get around.”
  • "The beach was too sandy."
  • "We bought 'Ray-Ban' sunglasses for five Euros from a street trader, only to find out they were fake."
  • "We had to queue outside with no air conditioning."
  • "I was bitten by a mosquito, no-one said they could bite."
  •  "It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel."
  • “The local women were too beautiful; it made me feel bad about myself.”
  • "We booked an excursion to a water park but no one told us we had to bring our swimming costumes and towels."

Funny holiday complaints or just damn right ridiculous?

  • "Topless sunbathing on the beach should be banned. The holiday was ruined as my husband spent all day looking at other women."
  • "It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England - it only took the Americans three hours to get home."
  • "The brochure stated: 'No hairdressers at the accommodation'. We're trainee hairdressers - will we be OK staying here?"
  • "There are too many Spanish people. The receptionist speaks Spanish. The food is Spanish. Too many foreigners."
  • "It's lazy of the local shopkeepers to close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during 'siesta' time - this should be banned."
  • A man sent a complaint to Disneyworld claiming that it was “too touristy”.
  • "No one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled."
  • “The beach had too many fat people. It was ”gross.”
  • “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.”
  • "I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts."
  • "On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food at all."
  • "I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment to our friends' three-bedroom apartment and ours was significantly smaller.."
  • "My fiancé and I booked a twin-bedded room but we were placed in a double-bedded room. We now hold you responsible for the fact that I find myself pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked."
  • “The animals at the zoo looked very sad and it made our children cry. Can’t they train them to smile?”
  • A man who took a summer cruise around Alaska complained about the weather not being as warm as he expected.
  • A woman on a Celebrity Cruises ship asked for a full refund because she didn't see any celebrities on board and said the company was guilty of "false advertising" due to the lack of stars.
  •  A tourist at a top African Game Lodge over looking a water hole, who spotted a visibly aroused elephant, complained that the sight of this rampant beast ruined his honeymoon by making him feel "inadequate".
