Tourists 'must understand acceptable behaviour'

People jetting off on holidays to far-flung and exotic destinations need to make sure that they understand what is deemed acceptable behaviour in the country they are visiting.

According to travel editor at Lonely Planet Tom Hall, some tourists can "overstep the mark" in certain countries and end up in trouble.

While it may be advisable to do their best to avoid such circumstances in the first place, Brits may find that a travel insurance policy also helps them to cover the financial cost of any problems which they might run into on their break.

"You might party a little bit harder than you would at home and it's understandable that when you go on holiday, you want to let yourself off the leash," noted Mr Hall.

A recent poll from the Real Holiday Reports website found that Russian tourists are now thought to be the worst in the world by their fellow holidaymakers, followed by the Germans.
