What we do with our annual leave

New research on how we spend annual leave

A study of 2,000 workers found the average person ends up spending over half of their average 26 days annual leave on personal chores which we just cannot get done while working – and only 11 days are spent relaxing.

Reasons to use up our holiday include taking time off to look after sickly relatives, looking after the kids during school holidays and waiting at home for a delivery.

And when factoring in travel to and from holiday destinations and other commitments, less than half of a person’s annual leave is spent fully relaxing.

The research, which was commissioned by Interparcel.com, found over a third have taken unpaid leave because they used all their annual leave up and needed time off.
