Letting loose on vacation is not a new mentality by any means. For some, letting loose may refer to bringing home the occasional hotel towel or robe—for others, it may be stretching the truth a little bit when on vacation (i.e. "We're celebrating our honeymoon!"). Trip-planning website Hipmunk surveyed 1,000 travelers to dig into the most common activities that make a "good traveler gone bad." From skinny-dipping in the hotel room to stealing extra toiletries, here are a few highlights. (Don't miss the full infographic on Hipmunk!)
According to the survey, six percent of takers sneak on an airplane before their boarding group has been announced. Rebels.

A whopping sixty percent of the surveyed travelers admitted to sneaking food from the hotel breakfast bar.
Thirty-seven percent of participants have snuck in an extra guest in their room overnight without telling the hotel. You know what they say, the more the merrier.
