British Couple On Holiday Think 'All-Inclusive' Means 'Whole Island'

Now, we're British, it's accepted that we're going to love a good brew, complain about the weather, and try to get something for free. It's also probably true that 'Brits abroad' is a well-known turn of phrase worldwide.

Sometimes, though, we don't help ourselves.

A British couple have had a shocker here, thinking that they could leave a restaurant (not in their hotel, I must add) without paying because their holiday was all-inclusive.

They told the owner of the restaurant that they believed their all-in holiday to Rhodes meant they could eat and drink for free anywhere on the island.

If you were trying for a free meal, or having a laugh with your mates, then yes, you'd be excused. However, according to Greek newspaper Dimokratiki, the middle-aged couple genuinely thought that was what they had paid for.

The owner, who runs a tavern on Hippocrates Square in the Greek island's Old Town, told the paper that the pair had tried to walk away, but when they were asked about payment, they simply just showed their wristband. Remarkable.

Eventually after the owner explained all-inclusive applied to the resort they were staying in (I would love to know his expression when doing so), the couple agreed to pay.

Perhaps, even more amazingly, the owner, who has not been named, claimed that this was not the first time this had happened at his restaurant.

All-inclusive is a genius idea, let's make no mistake about that. Pay a lump sum and drink as much booze, eat as much food, and enjoy as many facilities within the resort as you want.

However, to locals, it has apparently had a devastating effect on local businesses. Their trade has decreased following a result of these measures.

Joe McGrath got to enjoy the full pleasure of such a holiday, when he was asked on a trip with a total group of strangers, just because he had the same name.

The original Joe McGrath dropped out, so was simply replaced by another Joe McGrath from Manchester. The story went viral after it was posted on social media.

Now, take heed of this article, fellow Brits, and try not to do any more damage to our already weakened reputation.
