That old travel chestnut rears its head again today with news a pair of hapless travellers planning the trip of a lifetime to Sydney, Australia ended up in Canada instead.
News.com.au reports the pair of Dutch tourists – Joannes Rutten and grandson Nick, from Amsterdam – only realised the error when they landed in Sydney, Nova Scotia, some 17,000km from their intended destination.
It’s a well-worn tale – I remember a remarkably similar incident a few years back – but usually the victim has booked online.
This pair, however, booked through a travel agent. Thumbrella wonders if they charged a service fee?
