The travel companions most hated by the Spanish

At this point in June you will surely have your holidays organized, which you hope will be unique and unrepeatable. Of course, unless you travel alone, an option to take into account, chances are that disagree or have friction with your travel companions. And it is that agreeing on where to eat, what to visit or how to organize time is not easy.

The portal Uniplaces, specialized in student accommodation, has surveyed more than 2,800 young people in Spain about which travelers we want to avoid. Do you want to discover what kind of travelers we Spaniards hate? Well, do not miss anything we tell you below! Surely you feel identified!

Travelers who do not take into account the customs of the place

Apparently, 44% of respondents have stated that they do not want to travel with people who do not take into account the customs of the place and, of course, who do not have an interest in the culture of the country, something that we understand perfectly, since one of the advantages of traveling is being able to discover other cultures and customs.


Inflexible people

Spaniards do not tolerate inflexible people, that is, those authoritarian travelers who decide everything to do. Logically, most of us like to travel with open and permissive people, who make both the planning of the trip and the course of it much more pleasant.

Addicted to the sun

One of the main objectives of many people during their vacations is to get super skin tanned. If you are one of them, you should know that many people will not want to have you as a travel companion. And is that many of the respondents have stated that they do not like to go on vacation with people who just want to go sunbathing.

Compulsive controllers

Travel companions who Uniplaces has described as "compulsive controllers" are also hated. And it is that, although it is important to plan the trips, it is not necessary to control everything either. In fact, sometimes one of the best things we can do is improvise.

People little interested in trying the local gastronomy

Travelers who are not interested in trying local food are also not well-liked. Yes, we already know that sometimes it can be a little "scary", but if we let ourselves go we can try delicious food. By the way, if you are one of those interested in gastronomic tourism, you should not forget that Huelva is the Spanish Capital of Gastronomy in 2017.


Unlimited partygoers

Many respondents have said that they also do not like to travel with people who are only interested in partying. Keep in mind that although many destinations are known for their nightlife, they also have other things to offer, such as Ibiza.

Addicted to social networks

Today there are many addicts to social networks, which is accentuated during the holidays, and not only because they have free time, but because they have interesting places to teach their followers. However, people who do not stop updating social networks during their trips are not among their favorite companions either.

Lazy Travelers

Of course, many respondents have stated that they cannot bear to travel with lazy people, that is, those travelers who almost never feel like doing anything, especially if it takes some effort.


Little partying people

Finally, we want to comment that people who are not partying are also among the most hated traveling companions. Of course, these are less detested than the inveterate partiers.
