Vacation Deprivation - How to take advantage of vacation time

Vacation Deprivation


Every year, Expedia commissions a study to look at work-life balance around the world. The study is called Vacation Deprivation because it aims to bring awareness to the precious time off we’re leaving on the table, and educate and empower people to take back their vacation days.


Expedia first commissioned Vacation Deprivation in 2000 for the U.S., and in 2005 we went global to compare behaviors across countries. As of 2018, Vacation Deprivation has grown to encompass 19 countries and more than 11,000 respondents. Check back here for updates throughout the year.
