GREECE TIGHT THING – A BRIT couple tried to leave a restaurant without paying claiming they thought their all-inclusive holiday covered the entire Greek island of Rhodes.
The owner of the diner told a local paper that the middle-aged couple ordered ate and complimented the food and service.
The owner gently reminded them to pay the bill and in response they showed him their resort wristbands – thinking their all-inclusive resort package somehow covered the entire island.
After a brief back and forth, the unnamed couple agreed to pay after making a short trip to the cash point.
And amazingly the restaurateur claimed this was not the first time this had happened, reports Dimokratiki.
Local reports suggest many independent restaurants and bars are suffering as a result of the expansion of all-inclusive holidays.
The news comes just weeks after it was revealed Spanish authorities were constructing a “ring of steel” around holiday resorts favoured by Brits in the country.
Armed police are set to descend and patrol key threat areas in mainland Spain and resorts in the Balearic Islands – including Majorca and Menorca.
