Drunken ‘Saga Louts’ CauseTrouble Abroad


An increasing number of 50-somethings – known as “Saga louts” – are over-indulging in alcohol and food and becoming abusive to locals, an analysis of surveys shows. Older generations could be risking their health by drinking too much, having kinky sex and engaging in dangerous sports abroad such as bungee jumping. Research shows that one in five Britons over 55 are taking risks abroad that they would never contemplate at home, such as water skiing or riding a moped. As a result nearly one in five couples said that they or their partner had been injured. “Most problems that we see with the older generation of Brits arise from over-consumption of alcohol and food. Drinking and staying too long in the sun can make you ill and undertaking strenuous activity like going swimming or snorkelling after a large meal can put you in unnecessary danger – people have drowned this way. “After one too many drinks people can become abusive, for example shouting at resort staff,” she said. “We’ve also had instances where a few too many drinks has led older guests to over-estimate their strength, for example going swimming in bad weather conditions, which has ended in tragedy.”
