More than a quarter of British travellers admit stealing items other than toiletries from their hotel
British tourists may enjoy a reputation for being generous and splashing out while on holiday. But they are ranked behind the likes of the Irish, Italians and Russians when it comes to respecting hotel property. And the Danes are the most honest of all, according to the Hotels.com 2013 Amenities Survey.
While more than a third of global travellers admitted stealing hotel amenities other than toiletries, there were a few niceties that guests were willing to pay for. A room with a view (29%) and a balcony (17%) came out on top. And while comprehensive
worldwide travel insurance offers peace of mind, the poll of about 10,000 people found that free Wi-Fi is king when it comes to must-have hotel amenities.
Only 74% of British travellers claimed to have never stolen from a hotel, with more than a quarter admitting taking items such as towels and dressing gowns from their room. The majority of hotel guests globally (65%) said they had never pilfered an item from a hotel room, excluding toiletries. Danish travellers came out on top as exceptionally honest, with 88% insisting they had never stolen a hotel amenity. Only 66% of Americans could say the same.
