Expedia’s New Study Reveals Top Travel Annoyances


There is no denying that more people are travelling today than ever before.   It is estimated the average person takes five flights per year and spends 14 nights in a hotel, so it’s no surprise they have strong opinions about the journey. We’ll all agree on the top three things most people can’t stand; seat kickers, barefoot passengers and excessively chatty or loud travelers but Expedia has compiled a long list of other things people find annoying.

Expedia's New Study Reveals Top Travel Annoyances

“Whether you’ve been on one vacation or 100, you’ve likely experienced some form of annoying behavior while traveling,” says Nisreene Atassi, Global Head of Communications for Expedia brand. “At Expedia, we want to ensure that every leg of a traveler’s journey is enjoyable. Our goal with this study is to better understand travelers’ biggest pet peeves and offer tips to help them maximize comfort and minimize annoyances.”

For the fourth year in a row, more than half of global respondents identified the passenger who constantly kicks, grabs or bumps their seat as the most annoying. Planes are getting smaller and leg room is definitely not what it used to be so this one is something everyone likely experiences on each flight. 

Expedia(and your) top 5 crappy passenger traits:

  • The Seat Kicker/Bumper/Grabber (51 percent)
  • The Aromatic Passenger (43 percent)
  • The Inattentive Parent (39 percent)
  • Personal Space Violators (34 percent)
  • Audio Insensitive (29 percent)

It also comes as no surprise that more 90 percent of agreed it’s not ok to be barefoot during a flight. 

Also, almost 70% of Americans would rather sleep than talk to other passengers. Seventy-seven percent of Americans dread sitting next to someone who talks too much.

Carrying a pair of headphones or earplugs is a great way to cancel out unsolicited chatter on a flight. 

Top Hotel Pet Peeves?

  • The Inattentive Parents (45 percent)
  • The In-Room Revelers and The Hallway Hellraisers (41 percent)
  • The Complainers (29 percent)
  • The Party-goers and The Bar Boozer (27 percent)

To avoid baggage fees more Americans are stuffing as much as they can into carry on suitcases. In addition,

  • 75 percent of travelers deem freebies such as Wi-Fi, breakfast, resort credits, free parking, and room upgrades as very or somewhat important when booking a hotel.
  • Twice as many Americans would volunteer their seat on an oversold flight in exchange for a free voucher compared to other countries.
  • Only one in four travelers would pay to upgrade their seat, while even fewer would pay for in-flight Internet access.

Other findings include:

  • Across the globe, it’s no surprise travelers are most annoyed to find bed bugs, a used condom, cigarette smoke or foul smell upon checking into a hotel room – while dirty surroundings are the main reason travelers request to switch hotel rooms, more than half rarely or never sanitize items like the remote and phone, or wear shower shoes to protect their feet.
  • Travelers typically recline their seats for two reasons – only if it’s a long flight, three hours or more, or when going to sleep. A quarter of Americans said they never recline their seat because it’s rude. Europeans tend to be more likely to ask fellow passengers to un-recline their seat.
  • 54 percent of people agree it’s ok to wake snoring passengers – and when it comes to passing a sleeping passenger, most don’t hesitate to wake them and ask them to move. 20 percent say it’s ok to just climb over with your back to them.
  • Online and mobile check-in are taking the world by storm, just over a third of travelers still check-in at the airport – 50 percent of Americans check-in online for their flights. Meanwhile 72 percent still print a boarding pass and less than 30 percent use a mobile boarding pass.
  • Hotel habits – most travelers admit to hiding valuables from housekeeping and taking items from a hotel room.

When the school called to say their son hadn’t arrived that day, an Australian family was shocked beyond belief when they found out where the child had actually was!

all seasons hotel bali

After a fight with his mom, ‘Drew’ snuck her credit card and booked himself a flight to Denpasar, Bali.

A bit of research led him to the airlines that would allow him to fly without an adult.  All he needed was his student ID and a passport, which he tricked his nan into giving him.

As his parents thought he was heading off to school, he packed a bag, grabbed his scooter and took the train to the airport. 

The 6th grader flew under the radar by checking in through the self-serve checkouts before making his way through the security gates.

Once in Perth, Drew claims no one asked him why he was alone.

“They just asked for my student ID and passport to prove that I’m over 12 and that I’m in secondary school,” he said.

From there he boarded his flight from Perth to Denpasar.

When he arrived in Bali, Drew jumped on a Go Jek Bike and headed to the All Seasons Hotel.

While checking himself in, he told staff his sister was coming and he was checking in early.

After finding out where he son was Emma hurriedly traveled to Bali to collect him.

Touring The Winchester Mystery House

Billed as ‘an extravagant maze of Victorian craftsmanship – marvelous, baffling, eerily eccentric, and undeniably, haunted’ the Winchester Mystery House is the former home of Winchester Rifle heiress Sarah Winchester. Winchester Mystery House San Jose In 1884 the home was purchased as an unfinished 8 room farmhouse, but for the next 38 years, Mrs. Winchester would continue to add on to it. When she passed away in 1922 the home had grown to 160 rooms – 110 of which are tourable if you visit. I had heard many stories about this home so while in San Jose recently we stopped by to see if it was as creepy as it’s been portrayed. Winchester Mystery House - statues out front I have an obsession with historical mansions so seeing this house in its glory made me so happy.   There is no denying it IS a ‘tourist trap’ especially after the movie but the inside is truly incredible – even if it’s not furnished with her original belongings. We were unable to take photos inside the home.  Previously, you were allowed to but our guide told us tours would take too long because visitors were lagging behind taking pictures.  Also having images online ruined the element of surprise for those who had never visited the home. Winchester Mystery House - door to nowhere


Before arriving we tried to book a tour online and the website said they were fully booked. We were, however, able to walk up to the ticket counter and get 2 spots on the 11:30 tour so if you can’t get tickets online stop by and there will likely be room. On the flip side – if you purchased online tickets you don’t have to wait in line outside.


After losing her husband and daughter to illnesses, Sarah Winchester sought a medium who revealed her family and fortune were haunted by those who were killed by Winchester rifles. She was instructed to move West to get away from the spirits and build a great house for them. This led her to Santa Clara where she bought a property that eventually grew to 160 acres. Winchester Mystery House - front In documentaries and TV shows the home is billed as bizarre with stairways that lead to the ceiling, winding hallways and doors that open to nowhere.  This is all true but much of the design of the house actually makes sense… Just 4’10”, Sarah had arthritis and was unable to climb regular stairs.  In order for her to be able to access all of the floors of the mansion, the staircases were modified with riser stairs that were long and just two inches in height.  Kind of like a ramp they are very narrow(she was small).  These stairs meander likely in order to accommodate the tiny space they had to be put in.  In some cases, there are regular stairs(for the staff) and riser stairs side by side. Essentially the house was modified for her disability. She was unable to get into a bathtub so she had one of the first showers complete with duo sprayers to she could be cleaned on both sides at the same time.  This was pretty unique for the time – especially considering she had a water heater in the room to supply warm water to her shower. Sarah did have a fascination for the number 13 and it appears in almost every room.  There are 13 panels on the wall, 13 windows in the room, 13 engraved on the door hinges, 13 bathrooms in the house, 13 stairs on many stairways, 13 holes in the sink drains, and 13 hooks in her seance room.   The number’s prominence can be seen everywhere. And yes, there is a seance room.  It is the most centered room in the house and it had a secret passage where she could exit out the back of.  Each night she would have a seance where she would get help with her building plans.  Here Sarah would sketch ideas for her latest house designs and would meet with her foreman in the morning to go over new changes. Despite the fact that there are 160 rooms in the house it is estimated that 500-600 rooms were built and remodeled.  Construction didn’t stop in the 36 years Sarah lived at the mansion. When she passed away the home contained more than:
  • 2,000 doors
  • 10,000 windows
  • 47 stairways
  • 47 fireplaces
  • 6 kitchens
As you tour the home the guide tells stories about Sarah and her inspirations behind each room.  Oddly, there wasn’t one time where I thought the house was ridiculous.  When you’re there almost everything makes sense.  In fact, many of the home’s features were innovative for their time. The carbide gas lights were powered by the estate’s gas manufacturing plant.  They were activated by an electric button which was a new process.  The porcelain sinks in the kitchen were created with molded soap holders and washboards to make work easier for her staff.  Sarah also had brass corner plates installed in the every stair corner to make dusting the corners easier.  They also look incredibly fancy. Each room has a call system where a card would drop showing the servant where she was in the home. The North Conservatory has a zinc floor so the staff could mass water plants in the room.  The floor itself is built on an angle so all the water could run down and water the garden below. When not in use a wooden floor rested over top to have a more luxurious appearance. Winchester Mystery House - greenhouseThe home has two conservatories.  The floor in the South Conservatory famously has a window in the floor.  Odd at first but when you pass over it, you can see it brings more light into the room and also allowed Sarah to be able to watch over her staff below as they worked.  Many of the designs she had were for her personal convenience and don’t follow normal design protocol so they were deemed as weird. The home also had a wine cellar but it has never been found.  Sarah reportedly went down one evening to get some wine and found a dirty handprint on the wall.  Taking that as an omen she had it boarded up to be lost forever. One of the most spectacular parts of the home is the woodwork.  Ornate doorways, hall wainscotting, cupboards and parquet floors were handcrafted by workers who laid and re-laid the floors in mahogany, rosewood, teak, maple, oak and white ash. The floors in the front room reportedly took a year to be installed.  Sadly, they weren’t enjoyed by many.  Sarah was a recluse and rarely had visitors over.  It has been said she kept her face covered by a veil at all times and she would fire servants he saw her without it. There is only one photo in existence of her on the property and it was taken by a gardener who hid in the bushes. We were allowed to take photos of the living room area and you can see the wood strapping on the ceiling and panels on the wall. Winchester Mystery House - parlor Winchester Mystery House - parlor As your tour concludes you are guided back to the gift shop and small museum area.  The gift shop has many Winchester themed items you can purchase and a small restaurant you can order food from. Winchester Mystery House - giftshop The museum has some interesting pieces in it some of the first Winchester rifles, and some of the products the company made after demand for firearms was reduced. Winchester Mystery House - icebox museum A slot machine caught my eye.  I’m not sure if it belonged in the house or it was a product they made. Winchester Mystery House - slot machine If you are in the San Jose area I highly recommend a visit to the Winchester Mystery House.  The grounds are absolutely beautiful and the home is enchanting.  The tour takes about 60 minutes so plan to spend a couple hours at the property.  There is free parking in the lot adjacent to the home.

Ontario Science Centre Announces 3 ‘Sensory-friendly Saturdays’ For Kids With Autism

It is estimated that 1 child in 68 is affected by Autism, a disorder that is characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. For parents who have children with Autism outings to places where they is a lot going on can be a challenge because the triggers are unknown and there are often not areas set up to give your child time to decompress. To help ensure all guests are able to learn more while being aware of what to expect, the Ontario Science Centre has announced three “Sensory-friendly Saturdays.”  This new program designed specifically for children with neurodevelopmental disorders and is the result of a partnership between the Ontario Science Centre and the Geneva Centre for Autism. Ontario Science Centre Announces 3 Sensory friendly Saturdays For Kids With Autism “Many families with children who have neurodevelopmental disorders face a number of barriers to visiting and getting the most out of museums and attractions,” said Nancy Bent from the Geneva Centre for Autism in a statement to the Ontario Science Centre. In an effort to break down those barriers, visitors of all ages and abilities are invited to “embrace and celebrate neurodiversity” through a series of family-friendly programs, including a planetarium open house that will feature a modified experience so that people can come and go as they please. “It makes for a much more customized and personalized experience,” Rachel Ward-Maxwell, Researcher and Programmer at the Ontario Science Centre, told CTV News Channel on Wednesday. The Science Centre has put together a comprehensive story booklet to inform visitors with sensory processing difficulties about what to expect. This booklet includes information on lineup wait times, temperature changes and noise warnings are all included which allows kids to fully understand each experience and the possible triggers attached to it.  There are even parent tips included to give you more information on exit strategies if the activity becomes too much. Sensory-friendly Saturdays will also take place on April 7, April 14 and April 21 at the Ontario Science Centre. This week Sesame Place announced they were give a world’s first designation as a Certified Autism Center.  In 2014 Royal Caribbean became the first Autism Friendly Cruise Line.
