Brits 'behave better on overseas trips'

The traditional British stag do may be a raucous affair, but it seems many revellers are toning things down and soaking up the local culture when they head overseas.

According to online travel company Expedia, UK travellers are beginning to shake off their reputation as being "loud and unruly" in Europe.

While stag parties and tourists are still out to have a good time, many are making the effort to respect local customs and "get a real feel" for their chosen destination.

Jonathan Cudworth, head of product marketing at Expedia, said this was particularly the case for those who ventured outside Europe.

"Because of the cost involved and the time it takes to get there, Brits seem to make an effort to immerse themselves in the culture of the country they're visiting," he said.

Mr Cudworth's comments come after research by Expedia revealed UK holidaymakers as runners-up overall in the worldwide Best Tourist rankings.

The survey of hoteliers saw 18 per cent of respondents commend Brits for their politeness, while they were also ranked the second best behaved set of travellers. ADNFCR-2122-ID-19266168-ADNFCR
