Finding a cheap flight and bargain accommodation can save you money, but travellers' pet hate is added unwanted holiday expenses, according to Skyscanner.
A survey by the flight deal website revealed the price of withdrawing cash from ATMs overseas is the cost travellers dread the most.
Travellers who take money out at an ATM can be hit with international withdrawal fees while those using their credit cards to pay for expenses along the way can end up worse off, being charged an international transaction fee for each purchase.
‘Over-hyped and overpriced’ organised tours are next on the list, followed by costly hotel Wi-Fi access.
Taxi fares ranked next on the most-hated list, followed by having to pay for a sunbed.
Rounding out the top 10 most hated holiday rip-offs are duty free “bargains” that are not such a bargain, late checkout fees, having to pay for bottled water and tipping in bars and restaurants.
The charge for global roaming on mobile phones interestingly enough did not make the list.
