A study has ranked the UK among the top countries for quantity and quality of time off work
British workers enjoy some of the most generous holiday entitlement around, a report has revealed. With 25 days, Brits have more than double the holiday of workers in the US (12 days) or South Korea (10 days) and also find it easier to relax and forget about the office while away, according to an Expedia study.
Expedia's Vacation Deprivation 2012 report has highlighted the most and least desirable countries to work in, based on the behaviour of employees on their time off. The UK was ranked top, with British employees finding it easier to cut contact with their boss while on holiday.
With regard to letting off steam, Britons were world leaders, with three-quarters saying they are able to relax as soon as they leave the office or arrive at their hotel. Being well prepared, by arranging essentials such as
travel insurance in advance, could also help ease stress. Andy Washington from Expedia said: "We're pleased to see that the UK is leading the pack and Brits are making the most of their hard earned annual leave."
