The 10 little-known holiday rules that could land you with fines of up to £58k


Experts have revealed Brits should be aware of a number of laws that could cost them thousands of pounds when visiting beaches and other attractions around the world.

With summer holidays approaching, experts have revealed Brits should be aware of a number of laws that could cost them thousands of pounds when visiting beaches and other attractions around the world, after an influencer has been fined £1,500 in Sardinia. 

In light of the fine, Parkdean Resorts – “the leader operator of holiday parks in the UK, welcoming in excess of 3.5 million holidaymakers each year” – has revealed 10 of the weirdest foreign laws that could cost tourists thousands this summer (as of July 5 2023), from not flushing the toilet to wearing certain colours in public to ensure no one caught out when vacationing.

Meanwhile, if you plan to visit ancient monuments on your holiday to Greece this year, make sure you don’t wear high heels. 

Since 2009 it has been illegal to wear shoes that could disrupt or damage monuments at the likes of the Acropolis, Odeon of Herodes Atticus in Athens and the Epidaurus Theatre in the Peloponnese region.

Autumn Solitude

Several countries have laws to stop people from wearing camouflage clothing, including Barbados, Jamaica and St Lucia. You could be fined up to £1,574, or even be jailed for a year, for wearing any garment in the style. 

This rule came into place as camo wear is often associated with “rebels” and “troublemakers”, so leave these items unpacked and at home.
