Oi,oi,oi,okay – Oui,non!

Online travel company Expedia surveyed 4500 hoteliers world-wide about the behaviour of nationalities amongst their clients. First ranked for politeness were the Japanese followed by Brits, Canadians, Germans and Australians.

Aussies were considered loud, but didn’t whinge and were well-behaved. The latter may indicate an unrepresentative sample of our countrymen in the survey.

Equally unlikely is the last place ranking of French guests as the world’s worst: most impolite, meanest tippers and most frugal. On a a scale of their willingness to speak the local language, the French also came last (Aussies 6th).

‘Zut alors’, as they say.
