Encyclopedia launched to help Brits tell their bidets from their baños, just in time for the holiday travel rush.
Dealing with other people’s bathrooms
Before the first holiday in May (May 2nd) and upcoming Travel ExodusLeading bathroom retailer, Victorian Plumbing, is launching the ‘EncycLooppedia’ to help travelers become familiar with foreign bathrooms.
This year, millions of Brits are expected to flood airports across the country and flee to Europe and other popular destinations around the world (and there’s even info on space toilets, if you’re planning to take that thing to Richard Branson). New research showed that UK summer travel bookings exceeded pre-pandemic levels, growing 19% in summer 2019.
The guide will be released in tandem with increasing search data from holidaymakers. From March to April 2022 there was a huge 226% increase in hotel + toilet searches as more Britons shed their masks and take to the skies, rails and roads.
Looking for Loos abroad
As most of us probably already know, research shows that Spain is the UK public’s favorite holiday destination due to its fantastic weather and vibrant party life. And interestingly, Google search “toilet near me” in Spain saw a 300% increase from March 2022 to April 2022, so there are certainly tourists who could use an EncycLoopedia to learn more about the extravagant facilities!
From Africa to Antarctica, from outer space to ancient baths, the world’s first EncyLoopedia covers time, distance and innovative new designs. It is reported that 70-80% of households in Japan have smart toilets. So if you’re traveling to East Asia anytime soon, don’t be surprised if you get screwed using the toilet!
This has been compiled through research and expert commentary Victorian Plumbing’s head of toilets, Joe Pascoe, said: ‘Bathrooms have the same purpose but are absolutely unique in every country in the world; The EncycLooppedia is an amazing resource for learning about the fun and interesting toilet differences from all corners of the world.’
The perfect travel companion – which could even double as extra toilet paper in a jiffy – EncycLooppedia ensures you never run out of supplies when traveling the world again. The Head of Toilets and Talent at Victorian Plumbing said: “As Spring has brought us beautiful weather so far, it is only fitting that we make available to all tourists and travelers our magnificent EncycLoopedia detailing and explaining the weird and wonderful bathroom habits around the world.’
