Thenadier the Inn Keeper in Les Miserables got it right,

"Charge 'em for the lice, extra for the mice
Two percent for looking in the mirror twice
Here a little slice, there a little cut
Three percent for sleeping with the window shut
When it comes to fixing prices
There are a lot of tricks I knows
How it all increases, all them bits and pieces
Jesus! It's amazing how it grows!.

It's called personal choice.
Personal choice but it is getting a bit silly, we already have two pages of extras that used to be included in the one off ticket price. Where will it end...still waiting for the charge to use the loo on the flight or paying for your waist size.

One of my sons and I stayed at a hotel in Tenerife where various selfish people would put towels on sunbeds and then go for breakfast. When we came down we moved the towels to sunbeds in the shade.

I have seen German tourists lay their towels out the night before. These towels ended up in the swimming pool ;)

I'd be pleased if hotels etc. had a rule whereby sun loungers could not be reserved for more than 30 mins. You don't need a lounger if you are at the bar, having a siesta in your room or anywhere else but by the pool.

Shamefully I have to admit that once back in the darkness of time in Gambia I threw towels in the pool placed there the night before ...... I was SUCH a naughty boy back then.

Why are posters talking hotel sun beds , thought this was a motorhome forum:(
I think you need another coffee chaser. Opening post states Campsites/Hotel sunbeds. We are not talking about freeloading campsites some upmarket campsites have the same problems with pool sunbeds as hotels do..

It won't work unless people are willing to pay lets hope so. The problem will be the payable ones will be the best there might not even be enough free ones left to find one. Not a big problem for me can't sit stii for more than 1/2 an hour but could be a problem for families with kids who want to be near enough to keep an eye on them in the pool.

It stated on the TV last night that the £22 fee was for the duration of your stay, and not per day as i previously thought.. i would be happy to pay that amount to ensure i had a sun bed when i wanted one.
On cruises they have a pool boy that collects towels from sun beds that are not being occupied, which is fair way of controlling the supply and demand situation

Never mind a fee for reserving sunbeds, the dogs would have happily shelled out to reserve this prime location in Ambleside last week. The pink belly is the winter equivalent of a sun tan !

I find that if you give a tenner to the pool boy, or towell bloke the first day, he lays your towel on a chosen bed, gets table, ashtray, umbrella sorted for the duration, lol. If you give him a tenner for the second week, he then becomes your beds personal Rottweiler!! Lol.

Works for me!! Lol
