Germany’s biggest-selling newspaper has printed a guide to help readers going abroad to avoid British tourists.

Bild’s contribution to the annual battle of the beach loungers was sparked when a British holidaymaker, David Barnish, was awarded £750 in compensation after suing his travel company over a vacation at a resort filled with Germans.

Germany’s biggest-selling newspaper has printed a guide to help readers going abroad to avoid British tourists.

Bild’s contribution to the annual battle of the beach loungers was sparked when a British holidaymaker, David Barnish, was awarded £750 in compensation after suing his travel company over a vacation at a resort filled with Germans.

He complained of sun chairs being claimed at a record rate, of German-language-only programmes on the hotel’s television sets and of personnel at the luxury Grecotel Park Hotel on the Greek island of Kos only speaking German.

Bild quoted a German legal expert saying that Germans who found themselves at an all-British resort would not have the same opportunity of suing.

Tanja Dauth, from the German last-minute holiday company L Tur, also said: “It’s best to avoid the well-known English destinations from the beginning.”

Bild printed six spots to avoid: the Bay of Palma, in Majorca; San Antonio, in Ibiza; and Playa de las Americas, in Tenerife. Also on the Bild blacklist are Ayia Napa, in Cyprus; Faliraki, on the Greek island of Rhodes and Malia in Crete.
