82 per cent of Aussies Don't Get Enough Holidays

Do you get enough holidays? With the festive season fast approaching, this question can derive contentious responses. In fact, 82% of Australians say they don’t get adequate time to holiday, according to online travel agent

This finding came, following recent research conducted by ZUJI involving more than 1,800 people.

The research also highlighted the blurring line between work and play says Managing Director of ZUJI APAC, James Gaskell:

“75% admitted they research holidays while at work, 50% spending more than 10 hours of work time per trip. 33% say they would spend work more time researching their travel if they didn't have to worry about getting caught.”

However Gaskell says we’re also very conscientious: “More than 60% of Australians say they regularly monitor their work emails via a mobile device while on holiday.”

  • 82% say they don't go on enough breaks.
  • More than a third of us haven't had a holiday of any kind in 12 months or more.
  • The survey identified Queenslanders as the demographic most in need of a break, with 65% going more than a year since their last holiday.
  • 45% of NSW respondents were satisfied with the amount of holidays they take, making them the most satisfied state in the country.
  • Over 75% of Australians admit to researching their next holiday at work.
  • 33% of work researchers have said they'd do it more if they didn't have to worry about getting caught.· Almost 50% spend in excess of ten hours planning their next trip while at work.
