Expatriates and people travelling abroad are seen as representatives of the country they originate from, according to one travel industry expert.
Tom Hall, Lonely Planet’s travel editor, said most people are unaware that locals view their behaviour as representative of where they come from.
"I don’t think people feel that we are ambassadors in the way that they often should do," he said, adding that a person’s behaviour can have an "enormous" effect on how their country is perceived.
But this does not have to be a negative thing, according to Mr Hall. Expatriates and tourists who are polite and friendly when abroad could leave locals with a positive impression.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s latest British Behaviour Abroad report revealed that undesirable actions led to the arrest of 2,290 Britons in Spain last year.
Spain, a favourite destination for expatriates, also saw the highest number of hospitalisations among Britons, with 741 being admitted to hospital in the country.
In most cases, international medical cover takes the sting out of being hospitalised abroad.
