Top 10 annoyances for travellers

Research by Cruise Nation has revealed the most common travel frustrations

Witnessing other travellers' rudeness to airline staff has been identified as people’s number one holiday annoyance, according to a survey of 1,000 consumers by budget cruise retailer Cruise Nation.

Participants were asked to rate their frustrations on an ‘annoyance scale’ out of 10, with 10 being the most annoying and one being the least. Cruise Nation then compiled the 'annoyance scores' to identify the most annoying things that people do while on holiday. 

In addition to rudeness to airline staff, littering beaches was another major grievance, taking the second spot on the list. Witnessing others being disrespectful to hotel staff came third. Drunks and kids kicking the back of the seat in front came fourth and fifth.
