A Third Of Americans Haven't Taken Vacation In Two Years

While many of us look forward to, and count the days until our next vacation, there are plenty of people who aren’t so lucky. That’s because, according to a new survey, there are a lot of people who aren’t taking any vacations at all.

A new Allianz survey finds that 36% of Americans haven’t taken a vacation (defined as a leisure trip of at least a week to a destination 100 miles or more away from home) in more than two years, while 51% haven’t taken time off in more than a year. What’s more, only 42% of people say they are confident they’ll take a vacation this summer, the lowest percentage since 2013. 

So, why are so many people skipping vacations? Well, not surprisingly, the biggest reason is finances, with 44% of folks saying they don’t have the money to spend on vacation, and another 19% saying they don’t want to spend the money on a getaway. In addition, of those who say they aren’t sure they’ll take a vacation this summer, 20% site personal obligations, while 12% say it’s because they don’t want to take off work, and 10% say planning a vacation is too stressful.

  • ONE MORE THING!The survey finds that on average, Americans use about 41% of their entitled vacation days, while 20% don’t take any.
