#HotelConfession: A video that shows what not to take after your hotel stay

more-in

Recently, social media was aghast to see the video of an Indian family caught stealing accessories from a hotel abroad. The viral video showed they had lifted much more than mini-toiletries; hotel authorities found ceramic liquid soap dispensers, hairdryer, towels and more in their bags.

Most frequent travellers were angry and posted the video mentioning why some countries ‘do not like Indian tourists’, and others criticised the family for bringing ‘disgrace to Indian tourists’.

Seizing the opportunity, ixigo — a Delhi-based e-commerce website for travel and hotel booking — has shared an old video (shot in June 2018) that explained what can be taken from a hotel and what shouldn’t even be attempted. While it is understood that mini- toiletries can be taken, many travellers are also known to pack bath and face towels while checking out. The 2.10-minute video serves as a tutorial for those who are in the habit of packing things that are not theirs.

The video is now being shared with #HotelConfession.
