amazing what people will reveal in anonymous polls. A new travel behaviour
survey by metasearch engine Hipmunk covered everything from skinny-dipping in
the hotel pool to indulging in international drug use.
1,000 respondents, 7% admitted swimming naked in a hotel pool while 12% had
dabbled in drugs in places where they were legal.
most widespread travel offense in Hipmunk’s survey is pilfering the hotel
breakfast bar – effectively turning it into a lunch bar too - a
misdemeanor to which 60% of respondents confessed.
6% admitted to sneaking aboard a plane before their group was called, but 18%
said they have gotten up from their seat while the seat belt sign was on.
while there’s nothing wrong with taking home the toiletries from your hotel
room, a startling 29% of those surveyed admitted to pilfering toiletries from a
maid’s cart in a hotel hallway. 10% have lied to receive a hotel upgrade (Just
Married!), while 12% copped to stealing towels or robes.
well-travelled people, we wonder where Open Jaw’s readers fit on the naughty
travel behaviour scale. Please feel free to make anonymous confessions below.
You’ll feel better.
