Dutch expats ridicule Dutch tourists

A survey conducted by Radio Netherlands Worldwide indicates a majority of Dutch people living abroad are ashamed of their compatriots on holiday. More than 1,100 Dutch expats were questioned and the results of the survey put the Dutch in second place after the Russians in the top ten of rude tourists.

Complaints about holidaymakers from the Netherlands included “being too noisy”, “not wearing enough clothes”, “haggling over prices”, “wearing sandals with socks” and “lying about robberies in order to get money from holiday insurance”. More than a quarter of expats purposefully avoid Dutch holidaymakers.

However, the vast majority of Dutch expats are pleased to come across their compatriots on vacation. Dutch tourists are also valued for the effort they put into being able to speak the language of the host country.
