7 Types of Travel Partners from Hell to Avoid 22

Travelling is an awesome experience, but the diversity of people’s character and personality can make and break a travel experience. There are 7 types of travel partners from hell to avoid.

#1Β The Diva B****


That diva thinks that she is a queen and she wants everything to is planned for her and expects that everything must go according to her plan. She would be wearing her high heels for a mountain hike, and would complain throughout the trip, about the weather, the food, the locals, the transport, etc. She is the ULTIMATE B****. The best way to deal with the diva is to ditch her.

#2 The Sulking Face


The Sulking Face is usually the one with the most comment about the travels but never wants to plan the travel trip. The had this terrible face throughout the day that makes you want to punch them. Β The best way is to buy them a mask that covers that sulking face.

#3 The Auditor


The auditor is the professional human calculator, they lived by the slogan “every cents count” and would be a penny picker. They tend to destroy the fun in every trip. The best way to deal with them is to have a common fund when travelling.

#4 The Racist


The racist always thinks that they are the only one living on this earth. The believed that they are superior to others and do not care about others feelings. To deal with the racist, you could travel with them within their own country instead of travelling to another place.

#5 The Lazybum


The lazy bum things that they are the king of the world, the tend to destroy any itinerary by making up in late, and never ever wakes up on time. Travel with the lazy bum to a resort or a beach holiday would be the ideal situation, they tend to have 1001 ways to waste time and to slack throughout the day.

#6 The Microbiologist


The microbiologist is the ultimate clean freak, they use a bottle of hand sanitizer and a packet of wet tissue per day, they are afraid to step out and to experience life. The best way to deal with them is to get they gloves and to ignore their paranoia.

#7 The House-Mover


House-mover tends to carry way-way-way too much and expects you to assist them in their housing moving activities. Dealing with the house-movers, you could politely decline them in helping them or secretly throw away some of their useless stuff.

Are there any other behaviours or travel partners that get on your nerves, and how did you deal with it?

    I have a friend who is definitely #6. She’s a sweetheart every other way, and one of my best friends ever, but her hygiene OCD and frequent runs to the bathroom to wash her hands because she touched something you can’t even see is just unbelievable. I’ll never stop travelling with her, its something I’ve started coming to terms with but its still pretty annoying, I’ve to admit! LOL

  • Jen Morrow

    Oh, those are the worst!!!!! All horrible, and I have traveled with each one at some trip or another (often business trips where I do not have a choice in their attendance).

  • Rashmi&Chalukya

    Lol.. Completely loved this post We have at some point in time been with all of these and have missed on attractions or gotta late on tours so we completely avoid such company. It’s our hard earned money we spend on travel and do not like to waste it on others tantrums, We are better off on our own πŸ™‚

  • Tina

    Haha love your blog post you literally made my day! Oh god I am a tiny house mover I suppos πŸ˜€ I think the vegan type is missing where you have to spend more time looking for food they can eat during a trip or a mummy person – staying in contact with family 24/7 πŸ™‚

  • Liana

    Hahaa that’s really funny! I already met some of them, and I’ve been travelling with a drama queen, and it’s true: she’s a bitch, because she wants everything to be as perfect as it is at her house!

  • Annika

    That makes me wonder if I fit in any of these…I am probably to much of an organizer/planner whereas it drives me crazy when people are unpunctual. Put the two together and you will need a lot of goodwill to make it work though I dare say if two of a kind travel together they would never notice πŸ˜‰

  • Stella the Travelerette

    These are all true! I personally can’t stand traveling with anyone who refuses to try anything new. If someone is a super picky eater and hates unfamiliar experiences, then I don’t know why they travel in the first place!

  • Sarah Harvey

    Hahaha loved this and loved the “tips” you suggested to deal with them, particularly making the moody traveler friend wear a mask- hilarious! Out of these I’m probably #7- I really do need to pack less.

  • Jojo

    LOL! I have learn to pick these people out and not travel with them when I can avoid the situation. It is unavoidable with family though. Most of them are the house movers. It’s getting better with more travel experience though =)

  • Aditi

    Hahaha, this is so funny Bernard! I’m almost patting my back on my decision of going solo on most trips πŸ™‚ But I’m wondering if you had any of these experiences?

  • Liz

    Haha, this is funny! I’ve only traveled with two types so far: the auditor – and this was really frustrating! Although I’m not sure having a common fund with such a person would be a good idea; I’d say just leave them out of an activity if they don’t want to shell out money for it. And my boyfriend is a microbiologist – good thing I’m a doctor (an actual one), so he believes me when I say that it’s safe. πŸ™‚
