One of the biggest trends in vacation in the U.S. is… that people don’t.
In 2017, Project Time Off found over half of Americans didn’t use all of their vacation days and left 662 million vacation days on the table – that’s over 5 billion hours of time off. From feeling unable to step away from their desks to planning on “just using the time later,” Americans are missing out on a huge opportunity to reset, recharge, and explore.
To combat unused vacation time, Project Time Off is encouraging everyone to sit down on January 30th to #PlanForVacation. Pull out your calendar, fire up your search engine, and start planning your 2018 getaways.
