Travel Zoo have released the results from their latest travel survey and it has uncovered some dirty little secrets admitted by global travellers! Answering the questions that no-one else has dared to ask – travel experts Travel Zoo asked their respondents (made up of travellers from across the world) six simple, straightforward questions and the answers are pretty revealing! Summer holidays and travelling to foreign countries is about soaking up the sun, the culture, the food – not doing danger wees, stealing or cheating!
Surprisingly – Americans and Canadians ranked the highest for relieving themselves with a tinkle in the pool! Louise Hodges, spokeswoman for Travel Zoo said:
‘Most of us wonder about things like pool hygiene when we are on holiday and we were truly surprised to see American and Canadian tourists ranking as the worst offenders when it comes to having a covert wee in the swimming pool.
‘British tourists ranked somewhere in the middle of all nations polled, with 46 per cent of us confessing to this unsavoury habit.
‘Perhaps the carefree nature of holidays makes people behave in ways they wouldn’t ordinarily, but the findings are certainly food for thought when it comes to splashing up and down the pool.
‘My tip would be take an early morning dip before the hordes hit the pool.’
And contrary to popular belief, the survey which questioned 9,500 travellers from North America, Europe and Asia Pacific revealed that Britons are just as bad as Germans for ‘reserving’ sun loungers!
Have a look below and see how you would fare in answering the questions….and be honest!
Love, Summer x
