Hotel rooms offer some holidaymakers an ideal opportunity to pick up souvenirs, it appears
Over two thirds of British holidaymakers have admitted to stealing complimentary products from foreign hotels, according to a new survey of tourists.
Research by online discount site myvouchercodes.co.uk polled a total of 1,329 Britons about their holiday habits. More than a quarter of respondents justified stealing products from hotels because they feel they have paid for the privilege, while a fifth say that they take things to bring home with them as a souvenir of their trip away.
Some 15% said they stole because they needed the item, while a third said they thought the hotel would not notice the item was missing. Mark Pearson, chairman of the website, said: "It's quite surprising to see the amount people can steal from hotels. I can't quite believe people steal curtains or even kettles from their rooms." However, tourists may be walking a tightrope, as legal claims from hotels could force them to make use of the protection offered by their
worldwide travel insurance.
