EasyJet Holidays employ beach rangers to crack down on nuisances

By on Wednesday, June 5, 2024

Portable speakers, drones, and social media poseurs have been named amongst the UK’s top beach annoyances, according to new research from easyJet Holidays.

To help tackle bad beach-behaviour this summer, the holiday company has employed TV stars Michael and Hilary Whitehall as ‘Beach Rangers’.

In a poll the nation’s top 20 beach annoyances included; drones, portable speakers, raucous stag parties and social media poseurs.

During his time on the hit Netflix show ‘Travels with My Father’, Michael was famous for his no-nonsense approach when it came to dealing with bad etiquette.

The couple previewed a range of witty warning signs which are available to customers to download and display if they encounter any nonsense when abroad, so they can enjoy a brilliant holiday.

The Whitehall’s beach warning signs include:

  • BEYOND THIS POINT Instagrammers jumping at sunset
  • WARNING Loud Noise. Guy with XL speaker has playlist of ‘absolute bangers’
  • DRONE ZONE! Low flying aircraft operated by untrained pilots
  • Remote worker on conference call.May circle back without warning!
  • HIGH RISK OF WONDERWALL. Beach guitarists with zero self-awareness

When it comes to social media, 45% of Brits believe social media has ruined the beach environment, and over half (55%) find overhead drones are an invasion of privacy.

Michael Whitehall, easyJet Holiday’s Beach Ranger said: “Nothing spoils a holiday faster than bad beach etiquette. Whether it’s shaking sand from towels everywhere or treating the beach like their own private nightclub, we’ve seen these issues all over the world. It’s time to put a stop to them. As Beach Rangers, Hilary and I are here to educate tourists on the common courtesies and basic do’s and don’ts of beach etiquette to ensure everyone enjoys a great beach holiday this summer. And remember, don’t feed the seagulls. It never ends well.”

Matt Callaghan, Chief Operating Officer at easyJet Holidays said: “We know so many people love to take a beach holiday at this time of year, and everyone should enjoy their time away in their own way. Our research has shown the nation has some beach boundaries they wish were observed so that everyone can have fun in the sun. So, thanks to our new Beach Rangers, summer getaways abroad will no longer be disrupted by those who are out to kill the chill!”
