Zuji Survey Reveals 82% Of Aussies Don't Get Enough Holidays





SYDNEY, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 ZUJI.com.au.

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

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

SURPRISING SURVEY STATISTICS:

  • 82% say they don't go on enough breaks.
  • More than a third of Australians 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, keeping an eye out for local and international accommodation as well as scanning for cheap flights.
