Summer is finally here and for many, that means a holiday is just around the corner – whether it’s a trip abroad or a great British getaway closer to home. Whilst we always hope that things will go smoothly to ensure a break to remember, these disgruntled holidaymakers were left unsatisfied with their time away – for hilarious reasons.
Twitter account @HolidayComplain tweets genuine complaints made by Brits abroad covering everything from the weather, to a lack of facilities and troubles with language.
One complainant was left disappointed after the weather failed to outdo that in the UK, whilst another was unhappy that they were left unprepared for breezy conditions:
“The weather at home was nice whilst we were away so the whole holiday seemed a bit pointless.”

“It was windy on the beach and the sand went in my eyes. Nobody warned us about the wind.” — Holiday Complaints (@HolidayComplain) June 18, 2016
Meanwhile, language also caused problems with visitors left disappointed after the native lingo was apparently too dominant:
“Too many people in Germany only spoke German.”

“There are too many Spanish people. The receptionist speaks Spanish. The food is Spanish. Too many foreigners.” — Holiday Complaints (@HolidayComplain) June 5, 2016
Finally, in true British fashion, obstacles standing in the way of the perfect cup of tea drove travellers to air their grievances:
“The kettle was too big for the sink and I had to use the cups to fill it up one cup-full at a time”
