You’d think that given the limited vacation days offered to most of us on an annual basis, we’d make sure to enjoy every last one.
And yet on average, Americans use less than half of their
allotted vacation days each year. Seeing as Americans have less
vacation days than any other developed nation, this seems
ludicrous. You don't have to be a maniacal Marxist to think it's
appalling that across the working population that equates to a
serious number of free man hours we work for businesses.
There are apparently several reasons why we don't always take
our full vacation allowance, with fear of falling behind at work
and disorganisation being two. Both understandable, granted, but
when we hear that another key reason for not travelling is not
knowing where to go, that's disappointing. As a result, it's time
to rekindle 'Use it or Lose it' - Original Travel's annual campaign
to help you make the most of those (already measly) vacation
allowances. As the creators of the Big
Short Break, designed around the concept of minimum time and
maximum experience, we know where to go and what to do in November
and December to use up those pesky few (hopefully) remaining days
Keep coming back to the Use it or Lose it page to see what
enticing ideas we've added to make the most of those remaining days
off. Your boss will thank you for it. Possibly.
