Other common complaints included holidaymakers being too loud (35 per cent), hearing anyone moan about being too hot and Brits being drunk (41 per cent).

Travel expert at Go.Compare Ceri McMillan said: "It’s infuriating to have your precious time off ruined by another traveller.

"As well as being irritating, some of the top-ranking issues can actually have significant consequences.

"For instance, an insurer may not pay out on a claim that arose due to excessive alcohol consumption, and acting irresponsibly at tourist attractions or sacred sites can even result in you getting arrested.

"So, it’s important to occasionally shine a light on how problematic these pet peeves can be.”

Go Compare also revealed that gripes start in the departures lounge with Brits ranking seat kickers as the worst type of passenger.

Brits also found seat recliners, obnoxiously loud passengers, travellers with bad body odour, anyone in a hurry to get off the plane and those who clap on landing as annoying.

Meanwhile holiday experts at Compare the Market have put together their seven tips for ensuring poolside harmony on holiday.
