When Grace Bros. closes for redecoration, Young Mr. Grace decides to send the staff on holiday to the Costa Plonka. But first, Mrs. Slocombe needs to sort out her passport photograph and her injections, and Mr. Rumbold needs to hand out the tickets. Well that's simple enough, isn't it?

Meanwhile, the staff discover that Mr. Harman is coming with them. Then they later find out that Mr. Rumbold is coming too. To make things worse, he has purchased the same hat as Captain Peacock, and they can't possibly be seen matching!

Upon arrival at the Costa Plonka, the staff find that their rooms won't be ready until the morning, so they are forced to spend the night in tents. This would normally be alright but a criminal is on the lookout for Mrs. Slocombe...
