The Free Ka Maal Chindis
These people are easy to spot because they make no effort to cover up their love for freebees. Be it hotel soaps, toothbrushes, shampoos and towels or complimentary breakfasts, these people love anything with the word FREE!

The Bak-Bak Masters
There is bound to be at least one person who is not only obnoxiously loud, but also overly enthusiastic about chatting away with everyone and anyone. Their conversations and booming voice can easily wake up anyone who is trying to catch a quick nap on a bus or in a train (imagine Jab We Met’s Geet!).

The PDA Lovebirds
Often, you’ll come across lovebird couples who go overboard with PDAs. Their baby talk and Siamese-twins type body language will either make you cringe or turn away annoyed with embarrassment. But, nope, they could be least bothered by your discomfort!

The Late Lateefs
These are the worst type of travelers – constantly late, they’ll always rain on any tour group’s parade. And, they have no shame if everyone is behind schedule due to their lack of punctuality!

The Picture Un-Perfects
All of us have come across people who need help in clicking their (or their group’s) photos. But, some have a consistent habit of wanting others to click photos of them in every single possible place. And, they want you to patiently click a zillion photos of them while they pose in various styles and pout. Get a selfie stick dude!

The Complaint Boxes
Some people can never be content. It can be quite a pain when you run into grumpy people on a trip who down everyone’s morale with their constant complaining about the hotels not being up to the mark, the food not being good enough, the itinerary not being well-planned out, the seats not being comfy enough. Yep, you got the point. They have nothing positive to say and can’t enjoy anything!

The Know-It-All Snobs
There is bound to be at least one show off in a tour group who likes to one-up everyone, including the tour guide, trying to prove they’re the biggest travel junkie who knows it all and is a pro at everything. Give it a rest, buddy!

The Paranoid Phattus
Eternally scared, there are bound to be highly phattu people in every travel group, skeptical of trying anything that involves the r-word: RISK! These worry warts are quick to say no at any given opportunity.
Let us know what your most irritating travel experience is, and tag a friend below who you know is guilty of one of these habits!
