Survey Finds Travelers Will Lie And Steal To Save A Penny
One notorious strategy involves couples pretending to be on their honeymoon in order to score flight or room upgrades, with about 5 percent of survey respondents admitting to faking a special event so they could receive a perk.
Twelve percent of travelers confessed they'd used the pool or other facilities at a hotel they weren't actually a guest of, while 8 percent said they had used another hotel's shuttle bus.
Other travelers looked for ways to cut costs when it came to food and drink. A whopping 39 percent of respondents owned up to pinching food from the breakfast buffet in order to save money on lunch. A handful of others admitted to stooping even lower by leaving a bar or restaurant without paying their bill. Reassuringly, only 1.4 percent of people fell into that category.
