The Weirdest Travel Requests Ever

Travel agents recently reported on the weirdest requests they receive from picky customers.

Need Travel Insurance?

Travel agents recently reported on the weirdest requests they receive from picky customers:

  • A female traveller requested a hotel room with nothing green. Staff removed all green soft furnishings. Fortunately, the fittings weren't green.
  • A male client wanted a casino hotel that had slot machines in the toilets. The law states that cameras must cover all slot machines, and cameras are not permitted in bathrooms. He missed out.
  • A solo customer on a Kimberley cruise wanted to share with a stranger, but on certain conditions: that they not snore, not flirt, and that they be tested for HIV. Oh, and for nail fungus.
  • An airline passenger wanted every passenger on her Sydney-Los Angeles flight tested for peanuts. She feared an allergic reaction. Her travel agent convinced her to drive to the Gold Coast instead.
  • A bandanna'd 60-year-old man with a footwear fetish wanted to know how many pairs of shoes he could take with him.
  • A mother enquired about sending her unaccompanied child to Montevideo. How old was the child, asked the travel agent. Five months, came the reply.

And the nicest weird request? A customer asked his agent to drive his Mercedes SL500 for eight weeks and take it in for service. The dutiful agent accepted.
