The US Travel Association Wants You to Commit to Your Holiday
Since today is National Plan for Vacation Day, you need to do more than daydream about your time off this year. National Plan for Vacation Day, celebrated on the last Tuesday of January, is designed to help get Americans to commit to their time off for the rest of the year.
“National Plan for Vacation Day is an opportunity for Americans and for America. And who better than the travel industry to help plan the perfect vacation?” said Roger Dow, President, and CEO, U.S. Travel Association. “America offers something for everyone, whether you prefer a sunny day at the beach or a snowball fight in the mountains. We encourage every American to plan their time off to explore our great country.”
The most effective remedy for American workers who want to use more vacation days is better planning. Yet only 52% of households set aside time to plan the use of their vacation time each year.
Research shows that planners have a distinct advantage over non-planners: They use more of their time, take longer vacations, and are happier. 53% of planners took all of their vacation time vs. 43& of non-planners. Planners are also more likely than non-planners to use all or most of their time off to travel (33% to 18%).
More planners report they are “very” or “extremely” happy with their personal relationships (81% vs. 68%), health and well-being (56% vs. 43%), company (57% vs. 50%), and job (56% vs. 48%) compared to non-planners.
To help employees get their vacation days on the calendar, the U.S. Travel Association created this useful vacation planning tool. By simply entering the number of days off earned, users can plot out their trips or vacations for the year, export to their work or personal calendar, and share with their family and co-workers.
