A while ago I bought a travel magazine and I just couldn’t restrain my laughter while (trying) to read the most ridiculous travel complaints. So I looked for even more ridiculous and funnier complaints and made a compilation just for you! Have fun!
magazine complaints

Complaints that seem too absurd too be real, though they truly are!

  1. “There was no sign telling you that you shouldn’t get on the hot air balloon ride if you’re afraid of heights.”
  2. “The animals at the zoo looked very sad and it made our children cry. Can’t they train them to smile?”
  3. “My husband got carsick on the boat.”
  4. “We could not enjoy the tour as our guide was too ugly. You can’t be expected to admire a beautiful view when you’re staring at a face like his.”
  5. “We went to a Mexican restaurant in Rome and the waiter was Italian. You assured us Italy was the best place for an authentic food experience.”
  6. “The street signs weren’t in English. I don’t understand how anyone can get around.”
  7. “Although the brochure said that there was a fully-equipped kitchen, there was no egg-slicer in the drawers.”
  8. “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.”
  9. “We bought ‘Ray-Ban’ sunglasses for five Euros from a street trader, only to find out they were fake.”
  10. “Why are there no kangaroos hopping around Sydney city? I’m most disappointed.”
  11. “I’m sure I’ve stayed in this hotel room in a previous life. I cannot stay here again.“
  12. “There are too many Spanish people. The receptionist speaks Spanish. The food is Spanish. Too many foreigners now live abroad.”
  13. “The brochure didn’t say from what cardinal point the sun rises in Spain.”
  14. “The local women were too beautiful; it made me feel bad about myself.”
  15. “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.”
  16. “I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment to our friends’ three-bedroom apartment and ours was significantly smaller.”
  17. “We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as yellow but it was white.”
  18. “It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It only took the Americans three hours to get home.”
  19.  “No-one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled.”
  20. “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.”
  21. “We booked the honeymoon suite, and in the WC there were 2 toilets side by side. With no walls separating them! There is nothing at all romantic about that.”
  22. “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.”
  23. “You told us that there was a rooftop pool, but above us was just another room.”
  24. “We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our swimming costumes and towels.”
  25. “We had to queue outside with no air conditioning.”
