Work hard but don’t play hard? This Holiday Calculator predicts when you need a holiday

holidaycottages.co.uk have recently conducted research into how much the British nation is in need of a holiday!

The average Brit waits over 7 months to take a weekend break, likewise, 1 in 3 of the public also waits over 7 months to go on a trip for longer than a week.

During times of feeling stressed Brits are still reluctant to take any time off work with over half of respondents admitting that this would not be a good enough reason to take time off, and when we do take time off 59% only do so to just stay at home.

However, 1 in 5 Brits admit they are exhausted from work. Our work colleagues play a major role in needing a break from the office as 1 in 3 Brits confessed to hating their colleagues so much they simply tolerate them on a day to day basis.

James Morris, Managing Director at holidaycottages.co.uk said: “While it is great that we are a nation of hard workers, it is important that we take time out to rejuvenate ourselves and spend time with our families so we don’t burn ourselves out.

We hope with our Holiday Calculator the British public will be able to recognise when they need a break to refresh themselves so whatever their job is they can always perform to their full potential”.
